Not a bad looking cage! I would suggest maybe saving a few bucks and just redo the existing cage. You could make it a little taller by adding some more frame work. Basically build another cube with the same length and width but make it as tall as you like and screw the two together. Pull out the existing cloth and replace it with screen. Before you replace the screen, clean the wood and make sure it is still reusable. Replace any rotten pieces. Then sand it, and either stain and seal it or paint with exterior grade house paint! It will save you a few bucks and some valuable time. If you would like some more clarification just e-mail me. I build cages. I would also keep the tray underneath, it's alot easier with misting systems to just dump out a pan every now and again. That's all I use. Also to contain water, you could replace the rear panel with plexiglass or acrylic. If you're worried about reflections, just sand the surface so it becomes opaque and he can't see himself. Hope this helps. E-mail for some photos of cages too. fryguy28@cox.net
