Hi there.

I have tried to get a cheap viv for a beardie, but failed, haha. They all seem to be so very expensive, so i'm going to try and build one.

Can any viv builders on here help me to choose the size of wood i'd need, as i'm not very good at DIY :(
I just need the dimensions really, then I can order some.
I'm looking to house a beardie, but I want the viv to be big enough for an adult one. I'll partition it off while it is young, then open the rest up when it is of size.

Thanks in advance!!

Beardies like dry conditions I believe, so contiboard is probably the best material. You can get it from almost any DIY shop (b+q etc, but local shops too), and most will cut it to size, some deliver.
The only problem might be the back board. Make sure you get the size right, remembering that contiboard is usually 15mm thick.
There are several people on here who sell runners for the glass and air vents. Get the glass from a local glazier, preferably toughened especially if you have kids about.

Not sure about sizes, beardies aren't my thing.
