Here you will find multiple methods to make a lasting and unique addition to your house/office. The information in these tutorials was all obtained from my own personal trial and error over the past 10 years and 200+ vivarium builds. 

While there are many other methods out there, these are the tried and true ones I have had success with, using materials easily obtained from local hardware stores, nurseries, and the online store. I hope you enjoy your stay, good luck with your build, and if you find that any of my products fit into your design, you can find them in the SHOP.

Remember another excellent resource for vivarium construction techniques and build journals is the online community at This is one of the most active online vivarium communities and you can find hundreds of ​examples of builds to spur your imagination.
