If your animal hutch is to be kept in the weather then it is advisable to paint all external timber with an oil-based undercoat and topcoat. First, fill all screw holes and gaps with gap sealant.
Fix flyscreen if appropriate, with tacks or staple tacker.
To fix the chicken wire, start at the base and staple the wire around the frame in one piece.
Cut and staple chicken wire to the front door frame.
Now fix the Hardiplank cladding to the sides of the nesting box starting 20mm from the bottom of the base frame. Allow about 45mm cover on each sheet. This should bring the top sheet flush with the top of the frame. Cut a strip of Hardiplank to cover the gap between the two top sheets, fix and seal with Mitre 10 Gap Sealant. Available from your local Mitre 10 store.
Paint the Hardiplank cladding.
Hinge the two doors to the base frame rail and fit the slide bolts. To prepare the nesting box, cover the entire floor with enough thicknesses of newspaper to provide an absorbent moisture barrier. Line with fresh straw or shredded paper, and place a cat litter tray in the corner.
Ask your local pet shop for advice on the best type of water dispenser for your hutch, and fix it according to instructions.
