Commercially available large enclosures can be quite expensive, so at Snake Haus we love to recycle and re-use old materials when building enclosures. It is fairly easy, and inexpensive, to get old unwanted display cases. We try to find ones that are deeper in dimensions to give the occupant more room because some cases are very narrow. Then just turn the case around backwards and make clear doors. Explore the galleries below to see some of the ones we have made.
The gallery below shows a step by step creation of one of our wood display case enclosures.
Making doors is the hardest part. We prefer to use thick plexiglass because it allows you to install door handles for ease of use and locks for safety of the occupant.
