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.
