Default Reptile room build!

Well after months of planning I've started my reptile room build.

Footings dug and concreted.

Will be 3m x 3m, constructed from concrete blocks and fully insulated.

The beginning of something beautiful that I'm sure will be painful in parts! Good luck!

Nice to see this look forward to it progressing. I myself plan on building a reptile room myself still got a log of research to do though. How do you plan on heating the room?

Thanks, it'll take me a few month to finish but at least I've started!

With it being built from 6" 7n block and lined with 4" insulation heating should be minimal. Prob a oil radiator in winter.

Bit more progress. 2 course of blocks layed on the side to get me level to top of garage foundations.

Area leveled and some old rubble smashed up ready for 100mm hardcore. 25mm sand. Dpm. 50mm insulation. 100mm concrete

Wow, you were lucky to have a stray electric cable coming up out of the ground , just inside your plot

Seriously though, I love these type of threads were we can see all the work in progress , right from the beginning .

Looking good , by the way .

Ignore the black tarp.. I was trying to keep the rain off the new paint.
