Cabinet is 30x40x12 inches with a shelf in middle. Made simple removable plywood boxes lined with flexible radiant barrier and then I taped seedling (not reptile) mats along back with foil HVAC tape. Made sliding plexiglass doors to help hold the heat in. Raises temperature about 10 degrees Fahrenheit above room temp. No thermostat since room itself never goes above 75 F or below 69 F. 20170601_205123.jpg 20170601_213216.jpg 20170601_213235.jpg The T's seem to like it because they started to hang out near the heat right away. I think my Madagascar hissers like it better too.
