I am going to get one of those cardboard maze/house things. Which is better - the Maze Haven or the Mini Haven? Both looked nice, but I don't know which one bunnies like the most. Any ideas? Which do your buns like?

They are for two different purposes - The maze is an activity center/ super condo while the Mini Haven is half the size and more like a hangout. 

If you type in Maze Haven and Mini Haven in the Forum search, you'll also be able to get some feedback that has been posted before.

I bought two mini-haven's and my bunnies LOVE them!!! I made one of the sets two stories and then attached (with cardboard and pipecleaners) a second one story to the front. Then they have one of those 8ft long cardboard tubes that goes from the second story across my kitchen to the other one story part. I have to get a picture and upload it on here. The boys LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! They sleep on the first floor of the two story house, but also run up and down the tube and in and out of the houses. Super cute and well worth it!!!! Ill upload a pic tonight!

First I had it set up as 3 stories.  The third story was only accessable from the hole in the floor (no holes on the side or top for them to make the jump out of).  Samson loved laying up there in the darkness. 

 


 

After rescuing Ivy from the top area twice.... I figured out that Ivy..... is afraid of heights!! hehe!

So I had to renovate their house.  This is what it currently looks like now.

They love snuggling in the bottom floor of their hut or on the slippy floor above the litterbox...

I bought a 12 ft shelf (like you put in closets) from Lowes. I had them cut it right there in the store into two pieces. One for the top and one for the back side. I also bought a 4 ft section that I cut into (4) 1ft pieces then I zip tied them together to make a platform. I also had a ramp for it but the bunnies just jump right up onto the shelf so I found out it wasnt necessary. I covered the shelf with clear shelving (for cabinets) its a clear plastic that I put on upside down so its textured. Works great, is cheaper than the cubes that everyone uses, and you dont have to use dowels to stabilize it!!

It looks like one of those heavy duty cardboard concrete molds.

Yep its a concrete cardboard mold. I bought it from Lowes for about $7. They sell them in two different diameters- I got the smaller of the two but the big one would be great for bigger or chubbier bunnies. It took me forever to find it but since then I have also seen them at Homedepot. In both stores they are over near the lumber. Just ask where the "quikrete" concrete forms are located and someone should be able to point you in the right direction. The boys LOVE scurrying up and down the tube and chewing on the ends.

Great setup Rachel!! Too bad the three story didn't work out-that's pretty neat!!!


That's really neat how you covered the shelving with plastic...*thinking about renos'*

The cardboard molds can be bought in any home reno place-I bought a huge one for about eight dollars, cut it in two and have two huge bunny-room-length tunnels

Are they really sturdy? Like if you would stand on top of it would it crush?

They are quite sturdy. If you stood on it it would eventually crush but its much sturdier than just regular cardboard. I saw a couple of habitats that used them as a bridge to get from one side of the cage to the other on the second floor. They can easily support the weight of many chubby bunnies (just not a 100+lb human). I sat on mine to test if it would crush and it had no problem supporting my weight.
