Here it is. Has anyone got any suggestions on what to put in it to make it interesting?? Looks so sparce and boring at the moment.

Ru and saph are itching to get out into it though, they discovered the tunnel whilst the carpenter was treating the wood though. was very funny watching him try to shoo them back in!

I know I am well excited to see them discover it!

So far I've had suggestions of pots (Of course, why didn't I think of that!) and a sandpit filled with soil.

Lovely:love:

A small hutch with the doors off?

Some tree stumps and branches arranged as a hidey area? Or just tree stumps?

It was Boyles Pet Housing

Very good, would recommend! The carpenter even commented how sturdy and well built it was when he was putting it up for me.

I bought the plastic for the roof separately and then a roll of mesh for the floor.

Wow! I bet they'll love it and you'll have fun watching them too!

With that much space you have a lot of options, I'd add some sort of cover eg a small hutch or some tunnels. I'd also second the digging box idea a sandpit or similar would be great - or you could just go for a raised bet style thing (four wood sides). With the mesh on the bottom it wouldn't need a floor and that way the rain will drain through.

Something to jump on top off would be good too, so they can use it as a look out - anything really :)

Thanks for the raised bed idea! Much cheaper. Ordered one off amazon. Need to go get some soil and then we'll be off!

I'm going to put an ad on freecycle for a hutch to use as a shelter so fingers crossed

How much did it cost to get that done by a pro? It's fab!

You could dig tunnels into the ground? They'd probably like that or the sandbox is a good idea ;)

What spoilt buns! :p
