Default New croc enclosure in progress

Well well. It's time.

Not much longer will my two caiman live comfortably in their aquarium.
I have begun to gather the needed bits to make the enclosure.
The new enclosure will be an estimate 7-8ft in width and the length may be estimated at 15ft. Darn it, I don't do things by half do I?
The enclosure will be up to the ceiling with concrete wall and pvc windows. Large inline fans will be bought to ventilate the room and aid in heat distribution. I still have to figure out what way I want to do the plumbing. I'm also looking at collecting rainwater to automatically top up the pond so they get natural rain effect. I can't wait. It's not going to all happen at once with my current budget but I will always be doing something.

I am setting up a separate youtube channel specifically for the construction from start to finish. I'll probably leave the camera run most of the time and do as many uploads as it takes to get it all up.

Here's some pics of what's things looking like so far...
