Farmer Cathy - You can't have a bunny in your home in the suburbs? Odd. Is it a rule or regulation of your suburb?

|First off, is he fixed? Bunnies are very territorial, but it lessens with the neuter and spaying. With the large breed, you need a 4ft height to keep them in. You can buy them that way, they are more expensive. You can buy Bitter Apple or other nasty tasting spray to put on things you can't move. Bunny Bytes have it in there inventory. http://www.bunnybytes.com/cgi-bin/start.cgi
The pooping is part territory part normal behavior. You can use a spray bottle and spray him each time he tries to enter the room or put a potty box in there. Add some of his poop and litter so it smells like him and a handful or hay to encourage staying.
i would say line the whole thing with a nice bath mat (rubber bottomed) and keep her off wire entirely until it heals.
get bath mats that are machine washable. during the last few days of october j's life, we switched out three bath mats a day. he wasn't hopping, so he would poop, pee, etc on the mats. when he would pee, i would switch it out, put it in the wash, and wash them at the end of the day (the two that he wasn't using).
so, i would recommend this.
