    This is one I made for a Lacey.

    Unfortunately I didn't get progress shots but I first made the frame from treated pine and then screwed sheets of 25mm square mesh to the bottom so it wouldn't be able to dig out. I then tech screwed the corrugated iron around the inside. So from the occupants perspective it's basically a giant rounded rectangle and they don't come in contact with the pine at all.

    It was really quick and simple to put together. Once I had all the materials, I think it took half a day all up.

    This is so amazing. I’d love to have the same for my Pythons. Can I ask where you sourced the hollow logs from?

    I am going to hazard a guess and say the bush. Collect them, check for hitchhikers, brush off any dirt and wack them in.
