Second Half of Rabbit Hutch

Over the past week, I installed automatic waterers on the 7 cages which are housed in the first half of the outdoor rabbit hutch. With this completed, the outdoor rabbit hutch is now very low maintenance. In contrast to my previous indoor setup, the new outdoor setup has effectively eliminated the daily chore of cleaning out the trays underneath each rabbit crate. With the installation of the automatic waters, the only remaining daily chore now for the outdoor rabbits is to replenish the feeders which takes less than a couple of minutes.

This weekend, I began work on the second half of the rabbit hutch. I managed to get the bulk of the framing done. This involved standing up six 4 x 4 posts, which were then joined by four 2 x 6 x 16 beam spans followed by eleven 2 x 6 x 8 rafters. This second section of the rabbit hutch is now just waiting for its sixteen 2 x 2 x 8 purlins, a side wall covered by eight 2 ft x 8 ft poly corrugated roof panels, and overhead roof consisting of six 3 ft x 8 ft 29 gauge galvanized roof panels.
