The tortoise house

We moved in May of 2014. I decided to make a nice area for our tortoises, turtles and fish -- and us!! I did all the work myself. It took over a year to get to this point but now we can enjoy it. We call the small pool I built our "Sipping pool"-perfect to relax in there with a glass of wine
Your tortoise house looks like you can lift part of the roof so you can access it. I would like to see additional pictures and perhaps some specs if you don't mind.
 
@Neal Yes, the roof is hinged at the peak so it lifts up when the door is opened. It is made of cinder block that I ten stuccoed to match my house color. It is 5' x 9' inside. The roof is framed and insulated. It is thermostatically heated and I have two flood lights on timers inside for additional heat in the day and to bump the photo period to 13 hours. The floor is concrete sloped for drainage when cleaning. The floor is covered in a meadow grass hay.
