So after reading on several forums (Amazon Alliance in particular), I decided to make my own 'Target' Itso box. For those who don't know, Target has $8-12 boxes for storage uses. People before me have figured out how to make them into Chondro and ATB (or any other arboreal) cages. The boxes are appox. 14.5" exterior and 13.5" interior. Here is a pic of the blue box I bought. They also come in Black, White, and Pink.
So I added a light with velcro for visual aid as well as live plant aid:
I used an existing hole in the box for my lighting cord, simply widening it to fit and filling it with Silicone to seal it:
I pre-drilled holes for the hinges then glued the hinges to the door. Door was made by cutting (to size) a 36" screen door frame and gorilla glueing plexi-glass to the frame.
Then, with difficulty, attached the door to the box with said hinges. I also had to use a small piece of wood behind the hinges so they had something to grab to:
I still have to get door locks for the long term, but I was too excited this morning and had to put my ATB in there after decorating. So I'm using the clamps I used in creating it, to keep it closed for now.
Any questions, let me know!! I'm SUPER excited about it, esp since it came out to about $40 or less!!!
