    First time posting! Been a long build, and not quite complete with decorating (do you ever finish!) I hope its ok to make a new thread versus jumping on an old thread.
    Learnt a lot throughout the process and had a lot of fun with it. Houses my 5 year old Diamond Python named Wellington

    I startes out with a ridiculously too solid frame around an oversized shatterproof shower door. I clad it it MDF. Only adding to its hefty nature!

    I have since shelved it with climbing points which I covered in synthetic grass. I have covered the plain white walls in fake foliage panelling. I made a fake rock backround using the styrofoam and grout method. Athough time consuming due to the size of the project, I was happy with how this turned out. I used the same method for the water bowl. I moulded this around a kitty litter tray! (New of course) still a little bit of finishing touches to go in, but overall pretty wrapped with how it turned out.

    Welcome to APS!
    Looks pretty solid. No such thing as overkill, IMO.
    And there's nothing wrong with a new thread either. :)
    Any finished photos?

    No worries. I did see them on your "other" thread. Looks really good.
