CWD Enclosure

  1. it's really not as hard as you think to build a cage. I just started by building a large wooden frame, then added plywood to the sides. Silicone sealed it and then painted it all with the proper paints/silicones. Added the floor (plywood), added doors and lights, then decorated! All in all, I spent around $400 dollars to set the whole thing up. IMO, that's a lot cheaper than buying a premade cage. That price includes lights, pumps, everything!

    That is really amazing, you have done an excellent job indeed. Just a word of advice, next time, take photos as you go and post it up so we all can follow and learn, that will safe lots of questions.:D

    It looks beautiful! You did a wonderful job -- it was worth the wait!
  4. Ha, thanks everyone. I woulda done a tutorial type thing but the only problem is I myself didn't really know where I was going with it till I got there. They only pictures I managed to take in the making of it are these:
    The frame: (the little horizontal stick was to represent where the floor base would be made)
    Trying to get all the inside figured out.

    It's fantastic! Where did you get those branches?
  7. They're pieces of drift wood I collected at Pickwick Dam off of the Tennessee river. I scrubbed them down with a mild bleach solution and let them dry in the sun. I only cut one of them, which is the large one going across the top. I'm recycling from nature! hah :)
