    Planning is lots of fun, but it's even more fun "filling them up".

    scheming PVC mods at Casa de Crook

    Enclosures arrived today. They forgot the shelves for all of them, but sent me 4 enclosures instead of 3 as well as LEDs that I did not request...

    Also FedEx cracked 2 of 4 RHPs. Talked to Chris at Herptastic and hes going to get shelves cut and shipped in the next few days. Also sending replacement RHPs and a shipping label for me to return the broken ones.

    Sending back the LEDs with the panels and theyre letting me keep the 4th enclosure as they said they had me down for 4. I dunno, but okay. Not even going to assemble it as I have nowhere to put it unless I start taking over every room in my apt.

    Sneak peek of things to come. The 6 footer is going to be up top with two of the new enclosures in the middle. That stack will be just under 5.5 tall. Another stack behind me that will have a new one on the bottom with two 4x2x1 on top. That one will be right at 5 tall.

    Next move I make will be an absolute nightmare, but not planning on leaving this place until I buy a house eventually.

    Yall. Its getting real over here. Shelves for here yesterday so now the new enclosures are fully built and stacks are getting tall. Letting sealant cure and temps get dialed, then well work on getting coastal carpets set up in their likely forever homes. Im wiped out and gonna treat myself to some well deserved barley sodas

    Wow that's a Nice Setup!!

    And thanks for that pic...

    I was looking at building shelving but the price of wood Ugh! Then looking at metal shelving, still Ugh

    Then I see the moving dollies under there and the light bulb went off in my head!!

    Nice efficient way to stack enclosures and still be able to move them out to clean behind there.

    Thanks! Yeah the cart is just three Milwaukee furniture dollys and two 1x4x8 pieces of whitewood from Lowes. Heavy duty door pulls mounted to the underside of the left and right dollys. Makes getting behind them to deal with cords/probes/etc much easier. May put the chest freezer on a dolly eventually too

    Stack #2 completed and a quick wide angle shot of the room which barely gets it all in the frame. Now to prep a bunch of coconut mulch, get some decorative elements placed, and shuffle some critters into larger enclosures. Once Ive got everything dialed Ill give specific details on all the new cages, perches, perch holders, etc.

    Thanks temp! Overall functionality-wise I think theyll be pretty comparable to AP. Theres a bunch of little attention to detail points that Ill do a write up on hopefully soon. Things like rounding of edges, stacking pin holes, etc that I think give AP the edge, but these will certainly do the trick from a utilitarian perspective. Once Ive actually got critters in them Ill have a better idea how I feel.
