Today I built our Russian tortoises a little tortoise house. Its purpose is to provide a spot that is generally drier and warmer in the mornings and more chilly days.

|The plexi glass allows the sun to shine inside to warm the interior.|
|An added bonus of the plexi glass: I can peek inside at the torts!|
In addition to this very
slapped together rustic tortoise house, I'm also working on building a cold frame (like a small green house) that has polycarbonate siding. I got lucky at a nursery close-out sale and got a whole stack of odd-sized pieces for $5.
