In Reply to: Speaking of looking at houses with good snake rooms.... posted by gofer on April 14, 2003 at 10:43:27:

times Gregg. I had your basement pics in the back of my mind when I was typing the post. LOL. I also thought of the pics Russell posted of John Meltzer's serpenterium. There aren't many basements in Bakersfield where I am, so a few herpers improvise by using the current laundryroom temporarily while they build (supposedly at times) that snake room. LOL

:That is one main thing i looked at too. My basement was very dirty and not very nice at first. I cleaned it up, framed up some new walls, new concrete, paint, and a long time scrubbing, painting and staining the ceiling (it's neat logs with the old wooden flooring showing). I also decided to do some insulating and installed a door to keep the temps from fluctuating a lot. I'll post some pics of before and after, you can see a ton of them on my site. I just found it funny that you mentioned basements and people looking for snake rooms when buying a house. OLD pics

:Next house I buy my wife wants a larger yard, for a seperate snake building, LOL. New pics

:There are a few more, but i can't seem to locate them, but i know there on my site too.
:Have a good one,

::of addiction when you catch yourself looking at houses in terms of possible snake rooms. LOL. I'm just kidding Billy. I know that's not the priority, but can you see the possibilities? I know 2 people who recently moved who were looking at the basement being converted to a serpenterium when they first saw the house. Basements and laundryrooms seem to be a good room for conversion. How long can we go without clean clothes in order to have a serpenterium? LOL. My hat is off to all our spouses or people you date who put up with the things we do. Good luck

:::Terry,

:::Tell me about it!!! LOL! My collection grew after getting hooked up on this forum. Russell ( nodaksnakelover ) put some pics up of Meltzer's n.pines. I got in contact with Meltzer and picked up a killer male the following year in Daytona in 2001. Since then, the pits in my collection grew and grew. I now have 13 out of 25. This forum has served its purpose and much more, being able to exchange info and hang " online " with cool pit bros such as yourself.

:::We were looking at houses yesterday. If we get one, that may raise the chance up for me to breed pits. Right now, I wouldn't have the room I would desire to do that.

:::Take care!

::::I don't know if there's a cure, but you CANNOT look at this forum without the snakes in your collection increasing in quatity. Del Alspaw and I are partners and he keeps the Pits and I keep the Elaphe. It takes alot of self discipline not to committ to several of the snakes I see on this forum. I already think I failed because I will probably be contacting John Cherry soon on his locality yellow Texas Bulls he produces. Good luck

:::::They are awsom capes,don't get my hands itching again.All the little ones are doing just great.Keep me updated on the capes,THANKS,JIM
