Time for another random photo, so I thought I'd post an enclosure pic instead of the animal overload I usually do in the showroom section Laughing

4ft x 8ft indoor enclosure used to maintain and breed Burmese Stars during the Winter months. It is covered in the photo, but there is a Rubbermaid tub countersunk into the floor underneath the Mercury vapor bulb. When I see the old gals digging around I wipe the mulch off to the side and pop off the lid. Gives them access to 80lbs of potting soil goodness to dig in, and believe me, they usually end up digging half of it out before depositing eggs.
Anyways, if someone is looking for an indoor enclosure, these are super easy to build and most of the supplies are available at Lowes or Home Depot

Looks like a professional job.
I don't know if it is needed or not, but did you seal the wood (polyurethane) the inside of the enclosure?

Thanks guys!
The inside is indeed sealed. I used to line the bottom and sides with fiberglass shower board, but it wasn't really necessary. Now I just line the bottom with linoleum after sealing the entire inside and call it good.
