11) DIY elevated rabbit hutch
Since rabbits are quite vulnerable and cannot defend themselves in case there are predators, it would be best to make a rabbit hutch that is elevated. Doing this can minimize the chances of your pets being attacked.
This is exactly what this rabbit hutch can achieve. The cages are placed on top of the base height, keeping them safe from potential attackers.
The maker of this rabbit hutch plan wanted to keep it simple but complete. The instructions provided are short and easy to understand and did not skip on important details such as the measurement for each wood piece.
Diagrams are also provided so that one can imagine how the cage should look like if constructed properly. There is also a video that can be consulted so that the project can be done correctly.
All of these are enough for this tutorial to be mentioned in our list.
12) Pallet rabbit hutch
For those who don’t want to (or cannot) spend money just to buy materials needed for making a rabbit hutch, then this tutorial is for you.
You can get pallet wood for free if you ask establishments, or it can even be sold for a cheap price just so it can be removed from their stock room. You can also count on the sturdiness of this material, as it is commonly used for storing and supporting a heavy load.
Pallet wood is already cut, and it’s even possible that it’s cut based on the size that you want to. This eliminates the needed for cutting it and just get started with the process.
Though instructions aren’t too formal, the maker still discussed what he did so as to get each part of the hutch done. Pictures for each step are provided, serving as a reference for how the rabbit hutch should look.
13) Rabbit hutch or thin materials
If the wood is quite limited in your area, consider using an alternate material such as PVC to make your rabbit hutch. The material may be thin, but it has enough strength to house your rabbits.
What’s good about this rabbit hutch is that it can be used to contain four to six cages. The two extra hutches can be used as a “quarantine area” if ever some of your pets are sick.
The tutorial not only provided the steps in making the hutch; it also gave the cut list for the PVC. This makes it possible for you to substitute PVC for wood if you want to, as you simply need to follow the sizes and change it a bit so that it will look like the PVC rabbit hutch.
Despite the thin material, this hutch is still usable and sturdy. This quality deserves to be mentioned in our list.
14) Rabbit hutch with an A-frame
Tired of the usual square or rectangle rabbit hutch shape? Then consider making one that is shaped like the letter A.
Despite the noticeable difference in the appearance of the hutch, one can be sure that their pets are well-protected inside.
One noticeable thing about this hutch is that about 2/3 of the cage is exposed. This is beneficial for the rabbits during the summer months, as they are able to enjoy the cool breeze more.
This hutch also allows for a small covered space where the rabbit can sleep for the night or hide when it’s cold or raining.
The hutch isn’t difficult to make, as it uses less wood compared to its square or rectangle counterparts. And since less wood is needed, this rabbit hutch may be easier to move from one area to another.
With all these positive points, this rabbit hutch plan deserves to be featured on our list.

Inside the cage, there is a ramp and a hole that the rabbit can use to get from the bottom cage to the top one. This is a great way to get your rabbit moving even if it’s inside a small space.
Even beginners can make this rabbit hutch. Each step is explained in a manner that is easy to understand and is accompanied by pictures so that one can easily imagine how the cage should look like.
Those points are enough for it to be included in our list.
16) Converting a shelf into a rabbit hutch
Do you have unused wooden shelves in your attic and you have no idea how you can use it? Then this is the perfect solution!
You’ll be re-purposing a shelf, so you won’t need to buy a lot of materials. Though you might need some parts of the shelf to be cut to size, it’s still better than starting from scratch.
Since most shelves are spacious and have several compartments, this will surely give your pet a much bigger space to walk around and stretch. It also allows them to move from one “floor” to another using the ramps.

17) An old dresser makes the ideal rabbit hutch
The dresser may not be that spacious compared to a shelf, but it can also be re-purposed to become a rabbit hutch. That’s exactly what the maker of this rabbit hutch plan did.
Since you’ll be re-purposing an old wooden dresser, there’s no need to buy lots of wood. In fact, it’s even possible that you’ll be removing some parts of the dresser to make the hutch – and those parts can be modified and used in making the cage or on any other project!
Instructions on how to make this rabbit hutch are presented in a way that she is relaying her story.
The maker ensured that the pet’s droppings will all be in one place – that makes it easy to clean and prevents the rabbit from getting into the litter box. The hutch also has three levels, giving the rabbit enough room to move and hop around.
18) Combining PVC and wood to make a rabbit hutch
Have just enough wood to make a small covered area for your rabbit but you want a spacious rabbit hutch? Check out this plan!
The maker of this rabbit hutch made use of a PVC pipe that can be used as an anchor for the wire and protect the pet. Since limited wood is available, he made use of that precious material to build his pet an area that can serve as a more secure shelter in case of extreme temperatures.
As for the instructions found on the website, each step is presented in a manner that’s easy to understand. No jargon is mentioned for each step, and the specifics such as the sizes for the wood or the pipe are also provided.
The rabbit hutch is also protected because it’s placed in the high ground.

The elevated rabbit hutch also enables the collection of their droppings, which serve as a good fertilizer.
As for the instructions, they are written in short sentences. This makes it easy even for beginners in woodworking to understand and follow each step.
