New Vivarium Build
 
I was planning to start this thread once I actually had the vivarium... but I'm too excited to wait any longer!

I know someone from where I volunteer who made several terrarium-esque display cases for storing large mounted birds, so I asked if he could make me something similar.

The dimensions are 2x2x4 feet.

What species are you planning on keeping in there??

Well, until I figure out what I'm doing for college, I'll just be keeping plants in it, but I'm going to design it so it'll be safe for crested geckos.

Oh ok cool!!

I didn't want to burst your bubble and tell you that height wouldn't work for most snakes. Phew!

That'll be a super cool gecko Viv though!!

Although if anyone else has other suggestions, I'd love that too :D

Update time! I got it painted today.

It just needs the glass and wheels and it'll be finished!

Now I need to start thinking about how I want to seal the wood... Right now I'm considering some kind of pond sealant.

...

That looks a lot like a telephone booth but without the telephone.

There's nothing wrong with that, of course. It simply freaked me out a little when I saw the photo.

I thought the exact same thing!

I should have painted it blue and called it the Tardis...

That would be amazing...maybe this will inspire some interesting name choices for the new inhabitant(s).

Ooooo, what a great idea!

It's that time again–update time.
The glass is in and I've got it home now.

Looks great!

Thanks!

I can't wait to start doing the fun stuff, such as decorating, but I have to order some sealant first... Oh and get some masking tape.

Re: New Vivarium Build
 
Well, I have all the supplies for sealing it, now I just have to work up the courage to go ahead and do it.
I've heard that Pond Shield can be a bit difficult to work with, but hopefully it goes fine.
