Last week i lined the walls of my shed with radiator reflective foil and can't believe the difference,its an 8x8 shed lined the walls with a waterproof ground sheet,then 100mm insulation and 6mm of mdf,then finally the foil.temps in the whole shed is between 24 -25 (it was 12 outside) and that was with just 1 basking light on,I had to knock power off for a couple of hours to put more sockets in and after 2 hours it only dropped 1 degree,only trouble is when i move the other 6 torts in theres going to be 4 basking lights and probably going to be too hot.

Wow, that really made a difference! I wouldn't expect that much. Only use one or two lights, then, if the radiator and foil takes care of the temps... sounds like it's nice and toasty in there.What type of tortoise is moving in?
