My bunny's dog crate! He has half a room too run around in, but the cage is for him at night and when I'm not there. The plastic bottom sadly cracked from our dog who used to use it (would've been nice to have the plastic bottom!!!!) So now I got a nice sheet of plywood and covered it with this sorta water-proof fabric (can't find a plastic replacement!) He has a brownie pan bought specifically for him, although it doesn't keep all of the bedding in, it works really well, (the cat ones have high sides and I don't feel like my small bunny would go out of his way to use the litter box lol) he loves to sleep on his hidey house so I placed a nice cushion on it, he has an extra litter box that was nice but he hated it so I put it outside his cage.
Andy looks weird in one pic because he's cleaning himself lol,

Wow these are awesome. Where do you guys get the material to make these? I want to make a cage for my ever growing lop bunny, she's pretty much outgrown the one I bought for her in January. And I want it to have multiple levels on a little dolly cart with locking wheels. The problem is I'm afraid to use wood because it can soak in the smell, and she destroys and chews a lot of things so it wouldn't be ideal. The one in the store with multiple levels is only for chinchillas and ferrets so the holes where the ramps are, are too small. Plus they're like 600! I'm wondering if there's a cheaper easier solution that I can just make myself.

Here's a tutorial for a grid cage.

This is my current setup for my two bonded pairs. Hoping to bond everyone together! I tried in the past and just got so frustrated that I decided to give it a break before giving it another shot... If bonded these two cages would just be open to each other as one large cage. Name:  ImageUploadedByRabbit Forum1465962513.091153.jpg

This is our set up. They also get free run of the apartment about 4-6 hrs/day each (they hate each other, so we can't let them out together). When using the ramps, they can actually get up to a full speed binky in there! The top two floors are lined with carpet, the bottom one is linoleum which is then lined with newspaper (the bottom floor is where food, hay, and litter boxes go- so we wanted it easy to clean).

I have been browsing for ideas and have got a few.
This is the girls room:







It's pretty difficult to get a picture of the whole room.

Almost looks like outdoor or industrial carpet. You could likely get something like that at a place like Home Depot (on those big rolls per ft) or a carpet store.

Here is my boys cage. I am planning on making it a two tier, I got a cool idea off of Pinterest that I am going to get my dad to build for me, since he's quite the handyman, luckily. He's only in here at night and when I am not home.

It's an XL Kong dog crate, it was previously used for my Pitbull Boxer mix, but she doesn't need it anyways. I was using a bunny cage, but I received Asia, my bunny, a couple days ago and he was a bit bigger than I expected. I love him either way. Hehe.
