Outdoors Turtle Enclosure.

Recommended Posts

Need to create a bit more space for some turtles so will record the build here.

Got given a secondhand shub so will use that as the pond, removed drain grate and replaced with a 25mm Hansen bulkhead then attached a stand pipe to it to allow drainage, drilled end cap to stop anything going down it.

Added a frame to it so room for drainage pipe to go to sump

gave it a scrub and found 2 bits of double glazing same length as shub

Bought a full sheet of 9 mm tanalised plywood this morning all cut to size for $55 including 100 screws for fixing it

Put it together to finalise what needs doing, will take it off to paint the framework, the roof and end will be mesh with roll over plastic covers for bad weather
