hi mate it would cost quite abit unless you found someone on here who is getting rid of one. it would work out cheaper to make your own.

£50 wood, £55 glass, £7.30 pair runners, £2.80 4 vents

That would be for 6x3x3 or 6x3x4 (lxwxh)

I brought my 6x3x4 viv for my boa off of ebay for £40! when we were putting it in place someone lent on the glass by accident whilst we was pushing it and it cracked and the replacement piece cost me £45 on its own!

SEcond hand melamine wardrobes are a good bet. You can pick them up for not a lot and the conversion wont cost a bomb unless you use toughened glass.

like the others have said, best to build one yourself. The viv itself to buy would cost under £200 but then you need to add the cost of having your lounge window taken out and refitted to get it in the house.

currently exactly what im looking up now.

Im using white conti board which saves a lot. But your looking at £50 for wood. Im doing a bit of a funky design. Its going to be four small windows with the front folding down on a hinge. 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.
