For larger breeds such as French Lops – British Giant – Flemish Giant etc…This 5ft large two storey hutch is made from Redwood and has two exterior graded hardwood ply base panels. 

The roof is boarded with the same shiplap as the hutch and is constructed on the same principle as the traditional roof on a domestic house. Beneath the boarding is a polypropylene twin skin rigid membrane with an air gap to ensure warmth and a watertight construction. The roof also has a 3” (75mm) overhang to all sides. 

The hutch is constructed from Swedish Redwood and is cladded on the outside with 12mm shiplap. The door frames are made out of a substantial 34mm x 46mm section and come with two solids boarded doors at each end on the bottom level and one solid door on the top left of the upper level. The upper level right door is a wire door but this is fitted with a winter panel in addition to the central section which has a winter panel fitted too. The benefits to this is to be able to have the best of both worlds in allowing light into the hutch but also offering the maximum security to the upper hutch with the winter panel fitted. The lower central portion of the hutch is left open. The left hand end of the top hutch is designated as the sleeping area and there is an internal divider that can easily be removed in seconds to allow you to clean the entire hutch throughout.

The hutch’s solid doors come with black tower bolts and spring loaded catch on the wire door as well as a turn button for added security. The tower bolts are a standard feature on all solid doors but can be upgraded to padlock bolts for a nominal charge.

The hutch will come on 6” (150mm) legs as standard.

This hutch is made entirely in The United Kingdom by us and is not sold by any other company in the UK.

There are many variations of this hutch on the website to suit your budget and available space such as with a run on the rear or on top of a run too. The size of run can vary to your preference in terms of length. Please contact us if you have any bespoke requirements as we are able to accommodate this during the construction stage. 

This is a superior quality and well-constructed hutch offering just over 39 cubic feet of living space.


Add-On Options

A Sliding Door Kit can be fitted to the upper floor so as to block off access to the ramp. E.g. when closed you can confine you bunny upstairs or downstairs.

A Hinged Rabbit Hutch Roof Kit can be added at the rear so that it will open and close like a lid. It has a bonnet like stay to keep it up, and a hasp and staple at the front so you can lock the rabbit hutch roof closed!

Winterising Panels can be fitted to cover the lower centre wire panel. The panels simply clip on and when fitted will keep out inclement or winter weather. The panels provide extra warmth of a night time and also maximum security for your pets.

A Central Door Conversion Kit can convert any central fixed wire panel to a wire door. Although you can reach into this area through either of the end doors, the additional kit will allow fuller access to the middle area of the hutch.

Padlock Compatible Lock Upgrade. All solid doors have a tower bolt fitted. However you can have this bolt upgraded to a lockable version which will accommodate a padlock.

Pressure Treatment Options

For maximum protection, we can tanalise your product (a form of pressure treatment) to help give you up to 10 years without the worry from dry rot and normal decay typical to all outdoor wooden furniture. Click here to find out more.

Maintenance

All our products are finished with a Teak water based (non toxic) preservative. The timber should be re-coated with an equivalent preservative every year to ensure the maximum life span of the product.

Oil based coatings are the best as they tend to repel water before it penetrates the timber fibers.

Re-coating is best undertaken on a warm dry day or even better after a dry spell when the timber has had time to dry enough to absorb the coating you are applying.

Additional Protection

Here’s a bit of a tip – get yourself an atomizer spray!

Get yourself an atomizer spray – the sort you do your indoor plant leaves with. Most DIY shops sell what’s called a waterproofing agent. Thompson’s Water seal is a brand name but “B&Q” do their own brand.

Fill the atomizer with it and spray over the external surfaces of the product a couple of times a year. It’s really quick and easy. Don’t forget to wear appropriate mask and gloves. Follow the Health and safety instructions on the container.
