I like the logs. The anteaters would like that, if in warmer weather.

Maybe just commenting on how easily that type of board comes apart especially if it gets wet but if it holds up to your guys then it's fine. He's just saying his have destroyed it before.

don't know a whole lot about wood/board type. However, when using wood for raccoons/coatis, the wood should be more durable.
like plywood or cement board. I have cement board on their bunk beds. I painted it with gloss rustolem paint. makes clean up easier.
Ana recommended that, and it works great. cement board will hold up much better outdoors.

I am pretty sure it comes in more colors other than black. I am thinking of painting their room with this type of paint.
the walls get dirty, and is hard to clean.

I think he was referring to the wood used for the nest box. We call it 'pressboard' or 'flakeboard' and - unless it's painted or treated with wood preserver - goes to h*ll in short order when wet or even humidity permeates it. It'll do in a pinch, but for longterm use, definitely 1/4" or even 1/2" plywood is the best bet.

I love the log walkways!! Will have to show that to husband. Make that his next project for our outdoor enclosure!

Thanks for the pics, Pat, and thanks to Mike & Ana for the ideas!! Ana always comes up with such cool stuff.

Oh, how are your kids liking the pod hammock? Mine loved it initially, but it's been weeks since I've seen mine use it. Of course, right now, they aren't doing anything but eating and sleeping. Torpor is in full swing. I miss my bubs!!

I think mike made the box out of plywood. ask Ana to be sure.
the wood Maxy is talking about, now I know what that is. I agree it don't hold up. cement board is the most durable, probably the cheapest.

when gary did the tower, he put I think he used pressboard on the floors, most of the floors are rotted away. they all need
to be replaced. (however, that was built 14 years ago) wish I would of thought of cement board when he built the tower. I would love to eliminate the tower, and just build a second floor,
or even half. All I need now is time, money and gary to replace it. will be lots of work. he would have to climb on the house roof to remove the old tower. :roll: oh, if I was only rich and famous :lol:

My foxes like the tower, there is a house at the top they go up there alot.
george will go to the 1st floor of the tower. I did see Carrie go all the way to the top a couple times.
guess, they almost have to climb the fence. not sure how the foxes get up there. However, foxes are more agile than raccoons are.

don't know if you remember seeing the cat walk Mike did for their raccoons. mine would love that.

on the pod, mine don't seem to use it much icon-sad however, I did notice yesterday someone was using it, cause the blanket was moved around.
could of been the foxes or george :shrug: Carrie and Jerry are pretty much parked in the room :roll:
I have to get the enclosure camera working. not sure why it is not working. the only thing is, at night, I can't see much on the TV I have the camera connected to.

back to the logs mike did,it didn't seem to take him real long to do it. Mike is one hell of a strong guy. he carried all those logs from quite a distance to get them to the enclosure.

I agree about Ana, her and mike are full of such great ideas. I told Ana she hit the jack pot with Mike. He loves doing woodworking.
he also cooks and bakes.

Maxy,
I know what the OSB is. that is what gary used for the floors on the tower, and it rotted away.
I wish I would of thought of cement board back then. if I can get the floors replaced, painted cement board is what I will use.

I have a corragated roof over the entire enclosure. makes it nice when it rains or snows. keeps all the water and snow out.
the corragated works out good, cause the water drains off it. the roof was made of wood beams then the corragated panel went over it.

I have pictures of it, but, now I can't find them. (I have so many picture on my computer, can't remember where I have them :roll:
