Ok so a while back I never got to building my frog room but thank God spring break came or I would have been doomed anyways heres how it went

K so we started here with this dump that we called a room, I know very messy but after a few days of cleaning we began construction

so heres construction of the first rack which will hold most of my tanks its 9 feet long 6 high and about 20 inches wide. The vertical posts are doubled up 2x4's and the horizantals are 2x6's that were ripped to be 4 inches wide and those were then bolted into the doubled 2x4's


So heres the rack almost finished we use the ripped 2x6's on both sides at the top and were the tanks will be sitting. We also took pieces of 2x4's and put them inbetween the ripped 2x6's for extra support.


Once the rack was pretty much done we began painting we used a light sky blue that actually look's really nice on the room.



Almost done painting the walls

Once the walls were completed we painted the floor

after a few days of hard work this is what we came up with



still alot to do but I think it looks good and my dad was talking about putting a plasma screen in there :eek:

Ill have more pics soon when we finish it up
