If possible, I would love a copy of your plans. I am bringing home an adult Hermann's tortoise and would love to build it something similar to this design. Would you still be willing to send me the plans?

Hi obas:

Won't you take a few moments to start a new thread in the "introductions" section and tell us a bit about yourself?

Sorry to bump a somewhat old thread...but I have to ask, how are all the decorations holding up? Specifically the fountain. I'm thinking of including a fountain of sorts in the habitat I am building. Any tips?

Here is a little update on how things are going.

The fountain did alright for a few months. But the pump in it started to act up so I decided to remove it to free up some space. I was at an arts festival in Los Angeles and came across a vendor who made ceramic mushrooms so I bought two of those and brought them all the way back to Memphis for the torts. They make for nice shade and they seem to enjoy them.

Of course I don't keep it stocked with flowers at this time of the year due to not being able to get them locally. Fortunately they aren't too picky and really enjoy their dry diet with the occasional greens!

By the way.. I bought another female Russian about five months ago but never updated on here.. meet Sophia!

Can you buy theese there fab,how much would you sell one of theese for?

Well I don't exactly have the time right now to build one for the purpose of selling it. In all honesty it's not that hard to build! The only things I needed for this was a jigsaw, a drill, and an hobby knife. Give it a try, you might do better than you think!

If you are still sending out copies of the plans I would love it! I'll be building a table within the next month and was thinking about something very similar. My new condo had a cubby space that's about 5x4.
This weekend I'm building a large shelf to sit the table on (I need a nice storage place too)
Anyways I love your table and you did a great job! Thanks for the ideas!!!
