Lovely set up, @Possy . Just a note of caution: those connectors are prone to pop-off, especially with an active rabbit. It's a good idea to reinforce all connections with zip-ties (or in place of the connectors). The added benefit of using zip-ties is that they make a handy door swing as well. (I think I saw a zip tie or two on your cage, but couldn't tell if there are more.)

I'll attach a photo of an old cage of ours that shows the door open to show how the zip ties make a good hinge. A carbiner clip can be used to hold it shut. It's recommended to have a door on a cage so bunny can hop out for exercise without having to be physically lifted out.

You may also want to consider putting a sheet of rolled linoleum on the wood so it can be wiped easily (if you hadn't already planned that). There is lino on the bottom of the cage in my photo. I don't have your well-made wood floor, but you can see how the lino would be a good way to protect your wood. The ramp is optional as rabbits can easily hop up to the upper level.

I am planning on making one of these soon. Did you have 2 sets of NIC cubes? I would like to make similar size set.

So today we decided to start transitioning Silver out of his cage. We took the top portion off and kept the bottom portion the same for him for consistency! I think he was a little confused, but so far doesn’t seem mad about it. Fingers crossed!View attachment 51045
What is the grey flooring or padding?

And Totoro who is completely free roaming during the day but we put a tempt gate up at night.
We blocked off that door in our living room during winter hence the weird blankets up in the background. He also has access to lay on a heater nearby if he wants but the area is warm. He was previously 100% free roam but since his bond mate died he's been chasing the cat at night. His night area is 5ft x 3ft.

Kinda wanted to start this back up as it’s a new year. My bun is a free roamer, but he uses the cage as a home base. It just got cleaned so not all of his toys are out. He usually has a little tunnel out for him to play with🙂

That looks really nice. We also have a similar cage/crate. My rabbit has been more free roaming the last few weeks. We have covers for the wire.

We didn’t need a den so we turned it into a rabbit room. We close her in at night and let her free roam in the day.
That looks so wonderful!!!!

We also don't close in our little guy, he has full roam of the house even when we're away.
His hutch is plenty big for his size and gives him some nice space to have to himself out of reach of others.

We got it on Amazon, the quality is good and holds up to most of his chewing habits, lol.

Here he is doing some stretches!
I like his little house. I am on the email list of the company that built it. They have really nice things.
