how tall are you planning on going Jack? if you're looking at the same as the OP then 3 / 4ft is going to be far too big for that. When the door's open you'll be 3 or 4ft away from the viv and not be able to get inside it or you'll end up having to stand on the door and pull it away from the hinges.

So thankful for all giving the advise, my wife said to buy a wardrobe from ikea and get the glass from a guy who has his own shop. Mmmm so what about a sealant for the inside can you buy something low odour and safe ?

Simply because doing that is waaaaay cheaper then getting suitable glass for a 6foot length. With this design i can get away with 4 1ft square "windows" and it means i can use 4mm glass for a fraction of the price.
Wish i read this post a few days ago!
that seems a great idea tbh

from a petstore/reptile centre may cost ALOT.

but if you know someone who can build well, will cost much cheaper.
