Putting together the rabbit hutch wasn't difficult and was pretty straight forward. The overall feel of the hutch is a bit flimsy and not as stable as a previous rabbit hutch that we had. When putting the pieces together, primarily the three supports for the top portion, one of them started to crack. As soon as the screw was going in, after a few turns you hear the wood crack.
The rest of the pieces just didn't feel strong, they felt too weak. Eventually after putting everything together it did feel more stable. Perhaps it's us as over protective fur baby parents, but when it's your little furry pal in there, the last thing you want is for his house to fall on him!
The hutch is really cute though. However, our bunny likes to eat everything, first thing he did is start eating away at the outside. When the bottom ramp is open, our bunny has to jump into it as it's not flush. The stairs also don't go all the way down and are flush, our bunny has to kind of hop his way onto that also.
Overall, it's cute but we would look elsewhere for a bit more stable hutch. It's not bad, but it's not great either (primarily comparing to sturdiness and in comparison to a previous hutch). Do we recommend it? Sure, but do expect some pieces of wood to break or be broken.
One dislike is the amount of plastic film each piece of wood was covered in. Cardboard would have sufficed.
