Cut the plywood sheet at the right size and fit it inside the rabbit hutch, as shown in the image. It is essential to take accurate measurements, otherwise the wall won’t fit into place.
In addition, we recommend you to drill pilot holes at both ends and to insert the screws into the frame. Build a straight-forward latch by securing a piece of lumber to the frame with a long nail (pre-drill the lumber).
Make sure the shingles overhang the structure about 1″ on all sides, to enhance the water drainage. Therefore, fill the gaps with wood putty and let the compound dry out for several hours, before sanding the surface with medium grit sandpaper.
