From me - I just want to say - thank you to my husband because he has worked **so** hard on this set-up. Here's the pics!!

Full set-up - it's a 4x4ft shed with a 9x5ft aviary - full height.


The aviary..


Inside the aviary...



John's tunnel connecting the aviary to the shed...


Tube into the aviary from the above tunnel:



Inside the shed...



The yard has been made fully secure so they can free-range too! :D xx

01-08-2010, 09:41 PM
that is fantastic ....:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:well done :wave:

01-08-2010, 10:03 PM
Thank you everyone! It's a bit nerve-wracking though leaving them outside for their first night..... :p ..... but I think they'll be just fine..... it's weird in the house without them though!!

The shed is fully insulated with polystyrene and thermal roll (silver / bubble wrap stuff) with white-faced Hardboard on top.

We plan to put some shelves in the aviary and some tubs with plants in on the yard. I'm not sure it will be worth putting tubs out this year now though - will have to see. I also think I'll probably put some Vetbed on the shelf in their shed for them to snuggle up on.

01-08-2010, 10:07 PM
You very lucky bunnies. :)

01-08-2010, 10:11 PM
I have been waiting to see this for ages and it's been well worth the wait - blimey they will think they are slumming it when they come here again now they have their new posh pad :)

Well done guys :)

01-08-2010, 10:31 PM
Thank you everyone! :love: xx

02-08-2010, 07:58 AM
Awww it's looks awesome! I'm hoping to have a similar set up but hutch will have to be inside the aviary.

Lucky buns!

Looks like an excellant set up they've got there, I'm sure they'll be very happy :)

Where did you get your tube from? thats the kind of stuff I`m looking for, to repalce the tube i`m currantly using, so that my guineas can get to the upstairs of their c&c cage.
And your buns home is amazing.:D

02-08-2010, 08:22 PM
Thank you everyone! :wave: xx

I should perhaps at this point mention that I owe some thanks to abbymarysmokey, bluesmum and batfink1 as I 'borrowed' ideas from their set-ups and scrutinised their set-up pics to get ideas though they are probably oblivious to this lol! :D xx

Thank you for the comments and I got the tube (and the green flower shaped perspex door) from (( Runaround )) (http://www.runaround.co.uk/shop/index.html) - they have some brilliant ideas. I think piggles would love the tube and it's much thicker plastic than the green 'Snuggle Safe' one.

Actually; I think I'll do just the same and order them a tube for their set-up as am hoping to change their set-up in the future now that the buns' have moved out. :p

02-08-2010, 08:30 PM
Wow :d

05-08-2010, 10:10 PM
Well just thought I'd quickly update on this lol - the buns' are absolutely loving it!! I thought they would but you just never know but they are thoroughly enjoying being outside. They get tons of free range time in the yard which they especially love and have done several flops whilst free ranging so am guessing this means they are now pretty relaxed out there! :D xx

05-08-2010, 10:25 PM
Awwww its lovely!!!! Well done, lucky buns! :love:

05-08-2010, 11:11 PM
Looks brill!! Happy bunnies!!! Love it!

Amazing setup! Why can't everybun be so lucky? :(

Thank you! And I know what you mean..... next door have a rabbit in a 4ft hutch ( a very manky ancient home built one) with a small dog crate attached to give it a 'run' of some kind...... but there is some positive peer pressure going on as they have let the rabbit for free range tons of times since seeing my bunnies' set-up. ;)

I rather love my two lovely bunnies too but it's nice to know other people think they're gorgeous! :love:
