The xpen is made from two 36" tall Midwest xpens... The back of the pen overlaps by four grids, so I am actually only using 12 of the 16 available grids. This makes the space 4x8 feet. And for two almost completely free range bunnies, it's plenty big. They're only confined when we're away for a long time or at night, altho they do choose to hang out in their pen a lot during their naptimes.

I feel even more envious now seeing the shelf in use. I had a bunk bed as a child that was made of knotty pine, and the pictures of Meadow on her new shelf remind me of that bed.

I'm guessing however Petzy, you probably had fewer chewed up willow sticks in your bunk bed.

Just a guess.... lol!

I'm loving the shelf. Their pen was just... missing something before.

I guess I've always had a little bit of "shelf envy" for the people who could do NIC condos (and do them well!) I've never had luck with NICs, besides for bunny-proofing.

I am quite pleased with how this has turned out. They've always had their share of boxes and small hidey houses and tents (and the maze of course!), but this is just perfect.

I like its size. I made a hidey house in the beginning just for Lint but it was too small. It was a waste of time.

Yeah... Mike has made two other houses, one for Mead and then another when we got Max, but they were flawed. We didn't realize there should be two openings, so they rarely went inside. Meadow spent more time on top of her house than inside. Max rarely went inside OR on top... And both were very small.

The other thing I like about it (that I required) is that it can be run thru... Max will routinely include the pen as part of his running space. He chases thru the living room, up the hall, into the pen, around the pen, and back out again towards the living room. So the fact that both chambers open up to each other was important.

Two openings! Of course, so there is always an escape. Mental note made.
