I build my own vivs. Only problem i encountered was air vents cause i dont have the equipment to cut holes in the back. My own solution was to make the back of the viv slightly lower so i could just attach mesh to it. lol
It's less professional, but it does the job! lmao
ive made 5 vivs that way.

For ventilation I either use a 70mm hole cutting drill bit (~£10) then 70mm plastic vents, or I use a router/hacksaw blade to cut out a rectangle, then mount large, rectangular house vents over either side of the hole. That's how I ventilated my large vivarium, as it had 2" thick walls that round plastic vents wouldn't be able to go through.

i do the same as Hadesdragon. Drill a hole, stick the jigsaw in it and cut a bit hole, then stick a vent over it.
