defiance, oh
An inspiring post. Thank you for the ideas.
I have a 4'x8' solid wooden bookcase that I am planning to lay on its back to set up an enclosure, add a liner, and ...ideas!
Once I get a good home set up then I plan to add a tortoise - gravitating towards a Hermann since winter weather in Ohio means keeping it indoors for significant time.

I will never tell Boo (cherry head Red Foot) about this. He would be so jealous. Lucky Murphy.

I thought about it but I'm the only one that ever goes down in the basement. Decided not to put forth the effort just to make it aestheticly to myself lol.

That is an awesome enclosure.
I was thinking about my future sulcata enclosure and I might steal the idea. I am also glad I have a daylight basement - we don’t even use our lower level in the house - Herbie will have a nice room in the future 🤣😂

I think that’s one the best parts about custom build enclosures - we can add anything we want to it and modify it.
I already came up with the new ideas for upgrades in Herbie’s closed chamber.

He's still not using the box though. He's going to have to learn to when winter comes.
Neither of mine use their box either 😤 they just hide under plants. If I stick them in there at night after lights out, they come right back out. Drives me nuts lol
