Had a chat with a builder friend of mine the other day about the possibility of building a 16 x 10 ft 'Den' at the bottom of my garden, as an office / snake room. It's a long way off - there are other things around the house that need money spending on them - but it got me thinking about what I could put in there... :roll:

So her is my ultimate rack - 15 ft wide, 6 ft high, 2 ft deep:



If only!!! I'd also have room for a 6 x 4 hatchling rack, and could maybe go up another level on this one. Cool eh?

Yep, and after my success with the viv, I'll buid it all myself :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, I work from home often, and need somewhere quiet to escape to when the kids get home from school, and it would be nice to have somewhere to retreat to in the evening when eastenders and big brother take over the house!!!

Here's the whole Den:


Also gotta make room for a flat screen TV, Playstation and beer fridge :D

Looking good that dude! I've mocked up something very similar for myself for when I move house and get my rep' room! Currently the list that I'm getting in there contains

1 Burm
1 FWC
2 Common Boas
2 Hogg Island Boas
2 Hognoses
2 Royals
2 GTP
4 Beardies
1 Breeding viv for beardies

Would like to get a couple of JCP in there as well but don't think I'll have the room with a hatchling rack :cry:

absolutely essential that ...nice shiny one ...they look better....could always hire someone to keep it shiny as well ( they could maybe use a feather boa :) ) ....not fair on the family to do that .

I know, it seems like no matter how much space you have, you'll always find something else you want that you don't have room for!

Even this huge stack couldn't accomadate a couple of Tiawan Beauties or pine snakes. Maybe if I sacrificed the Burm... but I've always wanted one. Maybe I could leave a few in the house...

Maybe I could let the missus in occasionally after work to give it a rub down for me. I'm nice like that...

No oil - wouldn't want her to slip whilst cleaning it! Better to keep it nice and dry for her to grip onto in case she has to hang upside down to get to thoose hard to reach spots :wink:

Naughty boys.

If I have my way, this year my fince will put his decks into the loft so I can have the spare room. He has had it for the past 5 years...it's my turn now!
