    Instead of a ladder I would add more vertical branches. You have a lot of unusable space at this point.
    I would suggest that the wide end of the branch be at least twice as big around as the igs body.
    Sounds like you are making progress. Keep in mind that every time you change things around it will upset him a bit. But he will get over it. Getting housing and husbandry lined out is the priority.

    Hi, I can`t see properly in the photo, is the front clear glass or screen?
    You can use branches from outside, no need to buy them.
    What type and wattage is the basking bulb, and what`s the surface temp of the basking object?
    EDIT: It`s o.k, I think it`s a solid glass front which is fine.
    If you put a small aquarium heater (50w?) in the water container (heat to approx. 80F or so) it would help create a decent amount of humidity, much cheaper than using a humidifier.
