So with 3 does and 2 bucks plus future litters which building in what combination would work best?

After more thought I have decided to use the 8x8' building for my mini rex and actually get the chinchilla for meat and to further the breed. That was my original plan before I got interested in mini rex and realized I had no room for large rabbits. The chinchillas can have the hexagon building and I will ask if we can cut the back door in half so the top half will open and replace the other door and possibly the east facing window. We will see if that provides enough air and light.
So the mini rex plan since that's what I have right now. It turns out there are gaps and heavy duty frames on either side of the 2' doors making the useable space only 4' wide instead of 6' and then 8' long. If I stack my 2 bucks in 2x4' cages is 4x6' enough for the 3 mini rex does and 1 or 2 litters at a time up to weaning age? Then the kits will go to the cages on the enclosed porch where the rabbits are right now. If I need that extra 8sq ft the bucks can stay on the porch or go to the hexagon building.
Anyone know anything about small generators.... It's around $500 to run electricity to the buildings and I've seen generators for less than $200. I don't know what on going gas costs would be using it all the time though. All I need is to run 1 light bulb (maybe 2 in the hexagon building) and heat the waterers.
Failing might just mean you are trying to climb instead of swim https://youtu.be/evathYHc1Fg
