Hi! Just wanted to offer my two pence.

I do understand your pain, rabbits can be very destructive. Theo has never been free roam, simply because I don't trust him to be in most rooms without supervision. Having said that, due to some training and supervision the only damage he's ever done to our home has been a small hole chewed in the corner of the sofa.

I would recommend (as you are already doing) making him a large playpen which gives him plenty of room to investigate/play/binky/run while no one is home. And in addition to that bunny proof one or two rooms which are easy to bunny proof (often a kitchen is a good room with less stuff to destroy). We've bunny proofed our kitchen entirely and our living room is 90% bunny proofed. This means when we're home we open Theo's pen (its in the kitchen) and allow him unsupervised free roam of the kitchen. He has a great time hiding under the dining room table, jumping up on the sofa in there etc. Then if we're sitting down to watch a movie or something like that we bring him in for 'play time' supervised in the living room. The change of scenery is good for his enrichment and we have carpet in there rather than tiles so he loves running/jumping/binkying in there. He is well behaved 90% of the time in there but he has tried to bite the wall paper/get behind the tv/get down the back of the sofa etc so that's why supervision is key.

If you could have his lovely big cc cage and then have a room or a couple of rooms he can roam for a change of scenery/leg stretch either supervised or unsupervised this would give him lots of fun and room and also spare your house. Do you have a garden? Depending on weather where you live etc could you set up a secure pen outside for him to have a run around in the odd time? There are lots of options for rabbits who can't be trusted to free roam (like my own!) to have a great almost cage free life.
