    Is the box like a gang box?

    I was originally going to use the outdoor light fixture but I went with the sockets instead.

    Does this box connect to the socket, then to the enclosure? The box grounds the socket?

    Aja, this is what you want for keyless bulb holders. You will need to run a separate wire for a ground.

    Are you making it so that the give matches the walls and floor of the room? Make it seem like it came with the house?

    I am jealous. I want a large room to house my reptiles...the room I currently have doesn't even fit the turtle tank as it goes into the hallway a bit...Though I guess if I did have the room I would quickly become an animal hoarder!
    Your vive is looking awesome! Seems like it is almost done. What do you have left to do?

    Sorry but you have this list all screwed up.
    You have drink beer and smile only at the end.
    You won't progress as fast but it should be at the completion of each step. Might take longer.
    But will be more enjoyable ;)

    Looking good.
