It's pretty much in the small animals section in every single petstore everywhere. It's as available at Cat Litter.

Had no idea all of that was going on with bunnies. I'm getting an education. I buy cat litter but have never seen bunny litter, at least never paid any attention to it anyway.

Well, rabbits do use hamster litter. (The paper-based ones though.) Rabbits can also use some types of cat litter.

Anyway, I have to make a final decision.
Would the shed or the small attic space be more cost-efficient? In terms of initial building costs (adding the needed insulation, flooring, etc to make them habitable for rabbits) and long term costs (such as electricity, and other bills.).

Thank you so much guys!

I had another thought that you need to consider.

If this attic space is on the southern exposure it needs to be better insulated than normal, because the afternoon sun on a southerly facing roof is terribly hot.

And your little bunnies naturally burrow underground for a reason other than protection from predators.

And I wish you good luck with this project.

As said already, cheap vinyl floor. Cover entire area with 1 1/2" foam board (just tack them) and seal with spray foam. Save original door, replace with cheap door and cut out most of it. Staple front with insect screen and maybe inside with mesh pre-filter for air filters and door bottom with brush weather strip (mom will be happier).
Any ac will freeze in that space and probably too cold for animals, though my kids guinea pigs seem to be fine with central air temps.
