The blue part of the wall is heavy nylon The rest of the wall is cotton cloth The door and upper window are clear heavy gage plastic "cloth" -- can't remember what Jo-Ann's called it The top and bottom are the opaque version of the heavy plastic "cloth"
The frame is the original lizardcages.com big jungle gym predating Keith's idea to sell them over the net.
The rope ladders are a combination of PVC and 2x4 -- soon to be all PVC -- with non-slip rug netting strung between the rungs.
Most of the time was spent figuring out how I was going to do this. I needed a cage that could fit in my car (a Saturn) with out taking up the whole car as I have to move a few times a year being a college student. I ended up with a cage that will fit in a large duffel bag, weighs less than 35 lbs, and only takes 1 hour to set up.
Total time at the sewing machine and cutting table was less than 20 hours.
It is not a set of panels for the wall rather a sleeve that slides over the top then most of the pipes slide into sleeves between the solid white fabric and the green check (every where that is green is a second layer of fabric.
The fabric is not very heavy at all so a normal sewing machine was more than enough -- I used my mom's Bernina that is about 5 years older than me. The only difficult part was keeping the clear plastic from clinging to the table top while passing through the sewing machine. In fact most of the fabric was scrap laying around.
Well Shaun glad to have done that but a few tips --
The ladders are great, light versitile and provide many ways to be climbed -- my ig usually climbs up the bottom of the bottom ladder so he really hangs from it.
I originally used towels for the ladder covers and it was a BAD idea -- they pull out and frey way too much so I have to trim them nearly daily.
If you try to do the whole cage as I have, have the frame near by rather than working from a list of dimensions. I am an engineering major that works in a CAD lab over the summers and my three pages of diagrams and dimensions were only just enough.
So MAR, where did you get those different cloths for the cage? Up until now Orko's main source of humidity was from daily baths and the ocasional spray from a bottle. His current cage is screen and I'd prefer to get something that retains humidity.
