Hi, I will deffo keep you updated on the project as it unravels. I'm really looking to doing the outside den, I wouldn't keep them out there permanently until they are at least 3-4 years old though. We have a massive garden and already have a nice sunny spot picked out for them under a walnut tree. My parents had a tortoise when I was young and remember him being out there, wondering around the garden all the time on hot sunny days.

 

Somebody already suggested turning the hutch on it's back but the whole idea of converting it is to keep them secure and safe from dog's and kids. I have a 6 yr old girl, an eight year boy and 2 labs. The hutch will also keep all the lights and heating safely secure. 

 

On another note, I received my 160 watt vapor mercury bulb today and it's massive! It seems like over kill to me and was wondering if anybody used theses before and what sort of heat they kick out? It's new and can be re-sold if needed but wanted a second option 1st.

 

By the way Stella looks gorgeous.
