I'd like to call upon the wisdom of the group to help me decide how to
proceed with a project. I'm building a rabbit hutch, intended for outdoor
use, and I am wondering how to weatherproof it. It's made primarily from
2x2's, with a plywood back and roof. The roof will also be covered with tar
paper (or other rolled roofing). Is there a finish that I can use on the
exposed wooden areas that will be critter friendly, or is it best to let it
weather and plan on building a new one in several years?
That's what I'd do.
Also be sure you plan your hutch so the rabbits don't get too hot in
the summer, and make sure they have a warm box for the winter.
It also needs to be strong enough to resist predators. Use heavy gauge
Also, contrary to popular "wisdom" put a solid floor in it, not a wire
one. Wire floors can cause a lot of grief for the rabbit's feet.
