What do you all think to bunny homes made from these cubes?

Does anyone know where you can buy them in the UK?

Has anyone any photos of their bunny's home made from these cubes?

thanks xxx

you can also get them at screwfix (who have a website to buy on line)

If you search NIC in the forum you will find a few threads about these cubes, I don't have them but know many like them because you can customise the cage to your space.

Only the large B&Q stores stock them.

These are great for indoor buns who can live free range .You can make plenty of levels and make it fit any space I love these .

I use mine for any foster buns.....

I love them, they can be a bit annoying when putting them together and don't look as fancy as other cages but they are very versatile!! You wouldn't get anything else that size for the money. Each cube is just under 1ft 2" and if you buy them from B&Q it's 24.99 for 24 grids. They used to be available in cheaper shops and places like argos, but now they are quite difficult to get hold of!


Sorry the photo is wonky :oops:

I have these too, mine is basically just a big run that I have attached to their cage, but the point is they are so versatile you can do anything you like with them :) I plan to buy another box or two to make the pen almost as big as the room - but in doing so protecting the skirting board! :lol:

Yo can add to them and rearrange them to suit the space and when you fancy a change :)

I don't think you can buy them in any colour other then silver in the UK as yet, you know these Americans, they always have everything first, and in every colour! ;) :lol: Ah, shopping in the states, what a joy! :D

I wouldn't go any other way now apart from NIC grids. :D They make the best cages without a doubt, (I have used a dog crate in the past but wasn't a fan.)
Here are some updated pictures of mine;

Thank you! :D Hmm, it took a few hours I guess, I had been wanting NIC grids for sooo long (they are very popular on another forum I'm on, members are largely American or Canadian so I was getting jealous of all the great cages!) so I built it in the middle of the night. :p Some advice when you are building it - plan what you are making ahead of time, the number of people who forget to build a door. :lol: And also, don't build it in a different room from where it's going to be - they don't fit through doors!

That's cool hon :D I am a planner so will definately plan this out - it looks so good, I want to move out :( for my bunnies :lol: crazy what I do for them :love:

Thanks for the tips too - I expect there's been many "Doh"'s making these NIC homes :lol:

I think I found half a solution for keeping my willow.... train to be a house, bunny, and make a cube cage... now just the partner dilema!

Awesome set ups!.... How many packs did you have to buy?

6 cube storage system just over 22 from B&Q I used 4 packs to make two 6ft cages. My rabbits love them plus you can build them to fit into any space you have available

I have decided def going for the storage cubes to make Nala's home....all you pic of your setups using them look great! Wanted to know what people have used for the flooring for the base and different levels....where do you go for wood cut to size?
