If the door to your rabbit hutch is fairly high, it is a good idea to build a ramp to make it easier for your rabbits to go inside the hutch. This is a very easy, inexpensive project. You probably even have all the necessary materials around the house.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • One-by-four
  • One-by-two
  • Drill
  • Screws
  • Saw
  • Measuring tape
  • Pencil

  1. 1

    Measure the height from the ground to the bottom of the hutch door. A proper ramp will be twice as long as this height.

  2. 2

    Cut the one-by-four to the above length.

  3. 3

    Mark points on both the left and right edges of the one-by-four every 3 inches.

  4. 4

    Count the number of marks on the one-by-four. For example, for a 7-inch one-by-four ramp, you will have two points.

  5. 5

    Cut the one-by-two into 3 1/2-inch sections. Cut as many sections as the number of points on the one-by-four.

  6. 6

    Screw the one-by-two sections onto the one-by-four at the marked points.

  7. 7

    Screw the top of the ramp down at the base of the hutch door. Be sure not to interfere with closing the door.
