I've built 4 vivs now, ranging from 36 inches by 21 inches to 6 foot by 3 foot, best advice i think would be make a good set of plans and stick to them.

I made two vivs myself a few weeks ago, 4ft ones. Theyre not difficult to do at all, I had all the wood cut at B&q for me and it was just a case of screwing it all together. Just make sure you work out how loare each piece has to be before you ask for the cuts! Check, check and check again!
I am seriously DIY inept so if I can do it anyone can!

definatley cheaper to make your own, especially if you want it big or a funny shape, you can convert furniture but be careful as some furniture manufacturers use cedar to repel bugs.
