How to Build a Ramp for a Rabbit Hutch

Updated November 21, 2016

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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


Wear goggles when using power tools.
