Man, I wish I had the skills to attempt something that nice!!! Good luck. The size sounds great, and the set up sounds very easy to access and service. I noticed the light fixtures in the figure pointing to the sides. You may want to opt to put ceramic sockets at the top of the cage and have the lights pointing straight down instead of at an sort of angle. There was an interesting article recently in Reptiles Magazine about the importance of light placement. Better to shine directly from above as it can lessen eye damage and is more natural if I remember the article correctly. I wouldnt have even mentioned it otherwise, because the enclosure looks cool IMO!!
