Default my new snake loft and ikea rack

I finally finished my loft conversion as a snake room I did all the work my self
I insulated it all with 50mm kingspan and boarded it out with osb board
Its approx 12ft square and I should have enough room eventially for 12 4 foot vivs and a couple of racks
I have put in 6 double sockets and am using a oil radiator to keep an ambient temp of 22-24c , I just hope its not to heavy on electric
Not the best pic but here it is

And my rack

Tyanks
Its the ikea komplimemt wardrobe the 100cm×58cm one
With all the tubs and shelves etc it was 185
The big tubs are approx 39in wide and about 17in deep

The wardrobe itself is only 55 but the shelves are 14 per pack of 2
The big tubs are 9 quid each lidless and the small ones 5 quid

The only thing is the pre drilled shelve holes are in the wrong position so you have to fasten the shelves your self which was a bit tricky

What did you do about the down beams? How did you support the roof structurally when they were removed?
