We bought the cage for outdoor use so it works for us. However, it was missing 2 pre-drilled dowel holes on one of the sides which we had to drill ourselves. The back piece went on just fine after that, but once on, the pull-out drawer would not go in because the sides were not drilled/aligned correctly from the factory (the side affected was the side that was pre-drilled from the factory). However, we did not need the pull-out tray/drawer so we were fine with the solid wood floor in the nest box & the wire floor for the main part of the hutch. The other piece that wasn't attached when we assembled the cage was the pre-drilled holes for the roof hinge. The piece was there but had fallen out so it was hard to figure out where it belonged. In the end we were able to assemble the cage (without the drawer) & it seems sturdy & will suit our needs for an outdoor hutch, but we were disappointed by the mis-aligned dowel holes & pre-drilled screw holes which affected the ability to use the pull-out tray/drawer. I'm rating this as Average overall because once completed the hutch seemed sturdy enough for it's intended use (outdoors) & the price was good.
This is my most disappointing purchase ever from Overstock. The wood is VERY thin. The cage leaks at the legs and makes a big mess. Unless you are going to put this cage outside on your lawn DO NOT BUY!!!!!!

I own three medium to large size rabbits. I have purchased several hutches over the years and this by far is the most durable and easiest to clean. We have used this one for over three years. The only issue we had is that the latch on the right hand size to the fold down door is easy to open so we added another latch to keep it closed. The "foot friendly" removable grill makes it easy to clean (most other hutches do not have one which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to leave the rabbit in the hutch while cleaning.) Ours has been used in a location where it is not directly exposed to elements such as rain and snow. My bunny loves this hutch!
This is not an indoor cage. Yes, it leaks at the leg, but so do a lot of cages. It was easy to put together and for what we paid, it's worth it. It may not last as long as other cages priced twice the amount of this cage, but I wouldn't expect it to. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. It's not very big, so I recommend making sure to get a pen for your bunny to get exercise.
