What about an xpen? It is a metal dog exercise pen like this: http://www.amazon.com/MidWest-Pet-E...B0002ZFOAY

It allows the rabbit to have tons of room to run around in! They are normally cheaper in stores. If you REALLY want a condo, you can make one out of a xpen like this!

 

I built this condo just for fun one day (I LOVE building things) And no bunny actually stayed in it, but if you made one like this, make sure you have a top on it if the shelf is to close to the edge.

Also this condo is AMAZING! I made an NIC condo like it, but as you can tell their is one made out of an xpen.

 
Here is a link on how to make it: http://budgetbunny.ca/2011/01/18/building-your-own-bunny-condo-a-step-by-step-how-to/

A video on how to make it:

Thanks for your help, I already have An xpen, but it doesn't have a roof on and I want to build different floors in it, any advise in a suitable roof? I would like to still be able to go in and get them if I need to?

the levels can be made out of wood as shown in the video/website.

These cages were made for 2 bunnies not bonded so there is two cages stacked so you would only need one. for the top you could use clothspin a sheet or a tarp on the top, or you could also use a wire mesh.

I've tried looking around, and the only place i can seem to find any is through ebay - but like you, i'd prefer to be able to see in person what i'm buying! I would use the xpen i have to put in different levels, but i thought the idea of a 'bunny condo' made from cubes was that it takes up minimal floor space (something i really lack in my apartment)

so just keeping my eyes peeled!

Mmm you get the amount of pieces which are pictured I believe, the description reads "allows assembly as a 5-cube set or as a 4-cube set with the extra grids used as shelves", which I think is 16 pieces. I haven't managed to find anything through searches which would be similar to use and as versatile I'm not sure about costco either

U can get 26 panels for about 40 ish quid from eBay though, I'm not a member of Costco, just something I saw on a forum!
