    They look good. Well done guys. What are you using for substrate on the water bowl side? Is that marine carpet or fake turf? And have you mentioned what its made out of? Is it wood? If so what type is it it to stand up to rain and water?

    it is thick ply-wood coated in fence paint with a low water retention carpet substrate (best stockists are Clark Rubber) & yes it is angled to drain off rain water BUT best to cover during deluge as pictured.......

    stapled & then sealed with wood trim.......

    it isn't ventilated save the entry hole & is higher than the rest of the enclosure due to the roof meaning that it doesn't get too hot or too cold.... I use Tarps also & Mulch inside them.....

    Keep an eye out for nose rub damage. If ( and its a big if ) it does occur, put thin Perspex over the bottom third of the file wire
