I am ... very happy with your plans, the organization that you have put into it and I am extremely happy with the response I have gotten from you when I have encountered a problem.
It sure does save money. At the same time it allows me and others like me to experience making the cage for our animal (animals) that we care so much about. I think that when someone takes the time to sit down and make something like this for their animal it really shows how much they care for them and respect them.

With your plans you can also alter the cage to each and everyone's specifications, or needs. I think what you are doing is wonderful and I want to thank you again.

Spent $108.00 at Lowes, another $65.00 at Home Depot buying things that Lowes didn't have..... Spending time with my son in a hardware store.... PRICELESS!"


"Overall, the best thing I have found from the cage designs... is that:
They work!!!!

They allow you to view and touch your Iguana from all sides, This is a must!

Once you have the material list you don't go back to the hardware store.

Just follow the instructions and it comes out perfect.

Your maintenance will be much easier.

Your iguana will thank you

Once again, you will have built something cool. "

Stacking Homemade Reptile Cages


I have your ebooks and my question is, For the reptile cage plans, Are the cages strong enough to stack on one another ?  I need to make 3 of the 4' by 2' cages and I wasnt sure If I could stack the cages if i used the plans in the book.  I planned on using MDF Material.

Thank you for your time,


Yes they are, Chris.

I have used 1/2" MDF and have three reptile cages stacked myself using this material. I have a 4x2 cage and two 3x2 cages on top of it but I could easily have three 4x2 enclosures stacked.

Just make sure your castors are really strong on the bottom snake cage and place them onto a piece of MDF or timber that is attached to the base of the bottom reptile cage so that the load is spread on the corners on the sides and back and not on the base, which does not have a lot of intrinsic support.

I also attach rubber feet or plastic stoppers to the bases of the stack cages along the sides, front and back (again not on the actual base material) but on the vertical MDF of plywood material.

Hope this helps.
