Here's a pic of my russian enclosure. It's older and a bit blurry, but you probably get the idea. Also in the pic is a juvie sulcata that is getting to big now to be a good roommate.
I call this my turtle table, and it stands above my RES turtle pond, about 5 feet off the ground. It's about 1 foot deep, and 4 feet by 8 feet. I used a deck covering to make the wood easy to clean and waterproof. It's worked fine for the russians, but again, my sulcata is proving his size by wearing the corners. Also consider using more UV light bulbs than seen in the pic. These guys can climb well, so keep any rocks, hides, or any other cage furniture away from the walls to keep them from getting out
