Building a Burm room.

Postby mw-glenn » Mon Sep 11, 2006 2:06 pm

Well, after all these months I have finally sorted out my space issue using a Wendy house. Here are some pics and details.

First I bought a more appropriate Wendy house, with windows, and rebuilt the roof trusses to accomodate a ceiling
Image

We then added the ceiling and insulated it with Rhinotherm (a more user-friendy version of aerolite)
Image

We also insulated the walls with Rhinotherm and ceiling board
Image

A bit of polyfiller, quarter round, paint and carpet tiles to finish off
Image

Some new cages
Image
Image

And the new tenants could move in!

My ball pythons
Image
My Brazilian Rainbow Boa
Image
My Jungle Carpet Pythons
Image
My Macklotts
Image
...and my Burm
Image

The temperature stays nice and constant - even more so than the house and the ambient temp in the cages is about 26 degrees with humidty of 75-80%. So it seems to be working pretty well. The room is also snake proof, all gaps and cracks have been filled will polyfiller and PU Foam.
I must say thanks to Reptilians for the advice and assistance!

Hi...


Nice work dude !
And I suppose that your neighbourghs are as happy as you are... ;)

Just keep a Crotalus atrox (Western diamondback rattlesnake) in an enclosure just next to the door and you won´t need to lock the door... :lol:

I shudder at the thought of having to do another one of these - it was a helluva lot of work - but for you I make an exception! ;)
