im after a big wooden vivarium for Don, the bosc, but i don't want to have to pay a huge price as i havent got much money.
decoration doesnt need to be included but delivery is essential as i cant drive :p

You may be better off designing one yourself and paying someone local to build it for you. you should be able got get a big (8x3x2) plywood viv including glass for about £200 which is pretty reasonable,or 6x2x2 for around £150 and they will last far longer than the standard conti board vivs especialy for a bosc! ( mine is destroyer supreme!)

We cant find anyone near by to help us make one. shes gone off the forum now but colours not important because its only going in her bedroom anyway. Im not 100 % sure what size she is after.

Edited because of terrible spelling :oops:

its prolly gona be something like a 6x4x4 that Blazey will want, any smaller would not really be in the "really really big" categorie.
OFcourse smaller like a 6x2x2 would be ok as many ppl apparently keep boscs of adult size in this and just let them out for excersise, we know blazey would not have aproblem with this as Don has run of the room anyway.

well i want it 8ft by 2ft by 2ft, but i want it designed a little different. i only want 4ft at the front being a door and the other just wooden so its hidden because he likes his privacy but i dont know how awkward something like that would be to build.... i'd need to draw a plan for it to explain it but if anyone thinks they have an idea what i mean, feel free to pm me.

Oh and i'd rather it be perspex (yes i know it scratches sometimes) than glass because he likes to whip his tail when he's in a closed space.

I built my own 6x2x2 stack. If you post a design, I would consider a comission build for you. the part-wood front is not hard to do. travel to lancashire (Bolton) most weekends so could even deliver. The dimensions might mean assembing and your end though, not sure I could fit anything over 6ft long in the van in one peice. Rather than perspex, why not consider toughened glass (6ml)?, perspex has a tendancy to shatter under force, so may not be the best choice
