Hi BruceLooking good! I built my house for them at the weekend, I have some insulation (donated by my local builders merchants) but it will restrict the space in their to about a foot square so might have to halve it width ways so that it doesnt get too hot! Now I have got to build a cold frame and attach it to the front which will give them access to their garden - sooo many plans, sooo little time and even less DIY skills! :D I have very talented sons and brothers who could make things in an instant - but where are they when you need them? :rolleyes: On your tubular heater bruce do you have it linked to a thermostat? If so is it a wired in one? Pat

i have the tube heater pluged into a vivarium thermostat.works great i went out at midnite just to check!!!! :LOL: The things we do! I had seen the plug in thermostats does that mean the thermostat has to be near the heater or does it have a probe?I am sure my neighbours look on in amusement when I am seen on my hands and knees "talking to the plants". My two have stealth shells and can disappear in an instant!Pat
