hi all
Looking for some advice on an outdoor hutch.

I have two 1 year old female gps.

Last year they were in a pets at home guinea pig den hutch in the garage and an ark run in the day on the lawn most days.

I brought them in over winter in a 120 ferplast indoor cage. However the time has come to put them back out now as I need to reclaim the floors space (live in a small house!)

Now the pets at home hutch looks too small! I would like to have them maybe outside on the patio area in a bigger hutch and lawn when I am about to put them out. I just can't find a hutch I like online. The ark run was from guinea pig hutches .co.uk and is fab quality. But it not sure which hutch I like as ideally I was after a single level large hutch on legs but they don't do that! They have a double layer hutch and hutches with runs underneath (but they are not much good straight onto a patio.). So it's a choice of the Windsor (but doubt Id use the bottom level as its onto a patio) or the double hutch. Both would offer more space than current hutch.

Would they be ok outside for now til Oct time? The garage is dark with just a small window. I am not in a position to move a hutch in and out each day. I feel bad for them days when due to work etc I am unable to put them out and they are in the garage all day. IAt least in a hutch outside they would have fresh air! I don't know what to do for the best!

Thanks for any advice!

There are some companies that can makes bespoke hutches . I live in south yorkshire and had a 5 ft single storey hutch made for me at a very competitive price.

@The Hutch Man makes hutches
I really like the rose cottage from pets at home as it is big, sturdy and good quality. It is £179 but was and may be still reduced to £150 and you can join there VIP club to get more money off the hutch ...
It is 150cm long and two floors so basically a 2 level version of the one you have.
If light in the garage is bad you may want to buy a light off eBay. Lucky piggies staying inside in winter!
Hope this helps!

I love it. It's good quality! At it's full price I think it's a tad expensive though. It's often going on special offer! So I grabbed it on sale when it was on for £100. Just £1 more than the bluebell :)
I can only find it on sale for £150!
What time of the year was it on sale? Which store was it in sale at?

It was on sale at all stores but the offer wasn't on for very long at all. It was about two weeks before Christmas.

I had to ask about the price because I thought they got it wrong! But nope! A couple of weeks it was £100.
