no problem!! I was going to do the same thing you are thinking of with the shelf as the lid but I realized it would restrict me on the size of container I could use. I currently have hatchlings that I keep or buy in shoe box size, yearlings in a middle size (almost the same size as the critter keepers seen in the pics) and the older ones in sweater size boxes. I designed the shelves to be able to mix and match sizes on the shelves if I needed to. the only change I would make if doing them over is to make them deeper. the reason...I now have too many corns for the shelves and am having to turn the sweater boxes long ways so they hang over about 1-1 1/2 inches. let me know if you have any questions about them. and I'll try to post more up to date pics this week or next!
:That's almost exactly what I had pictured in my head!
:What I was ganna do with the rubbermaids was make the shelf above them be their lids, but the clips are a great idea if I decide not to measure the rubbermaids;) Can I borrow your husband? lol
::here are some pics of the rack system my husband built for me. I designed the shelves to hold different size rubbermaid containers! the heating element is what is used in the mountains and on the east coast to keep pipes from freezing in the winter. (we live in so. calif and had to buy it in big bear) anyway...if you break the thermostat and hook it up to a dimmer switch, you have an adjustable heat source. let me know if you need better pics or any other details and I'll try to take some. these pics are about a year old. we have also found that a few of our corns can escape from the rubbermaid containers. solution...binder clips from an office supply store! enjoy!!
