Aesthetics:
Our tortoise houses are all clad in our own distinctive brick effect walls and tile effect roofs.

Insulation:
The Tortoise house walls, roofs and floor are fully insulated, with the equivalent of 2” thick polystyrene.

Floor:
All the tortoise house floors are from marine grade ply, so resistant to damp and urine.

Access:
As standard access to the tortoise house is via the hinged right roof panel; however, we can hinge the left roof on request.

Lamp:
All our tortoise housing has the headroom to accommodate a lamp. Power lead and plug access is via and adapted breather set into the back gable.

OPTIONAL EXTRAS

Ramp: To give your tortoise a ‘leg up.

Draft Curtains: The door opening can be fitted with clear heavy strip curtains that thwart draughts, without reducing the light in the tortoise house

Dividing Wall: A wall with an offset arch cut-out that subdivides the tortoise house to make two rooms.

TORTOISE RUN WITH UV BASKING AREA
A 1.2 x 2Mt, run made in the same distinctive Granddad Rob style to match the tortoise house. The run docks to the tortoise house via a docking frame (supplied). When facing the house, the entire right side roof lifts for access, (if required we can swap over so left side lifts). Built into the left and right roof frames at the house end of the run is a membrane, protected with additional wire mesh. The membrane is UV ‘open’, allowing the tortoise essential ultraviolet light to pass through, creating a dry, UV basking area just outside the tortoise house door.

Also available a standalone run.

Overcoat: The tortoise house is made using pressure treated timbers, so protected against rot. This secondary treatment forms a water shedding ‘overcoat’ over the tortoise house. Therefore stops water dwelling around the boards joints, hence we call it OVERCOAT. OVERCOAT is animal safe, it can be applied to damp wood, it dries clear so can be liberally applied without leaving visible brush or run marks.

A WORD FROM GRANDDAD ROB

I have to confess that I am not a tortoise keeper. The tortoise housing and tortoise tables we build are the result of numerous tortoise keeper’s requesting bigger, smaller, wider, taller, coupled with their invaluable knowledge of what their tortoise requires and as the keeper what they need to enable them to maintain a high level of husbandry. Therefore the design is constantly evolving, for instance as from 01/01/20 the houses are now to be INSULATED as standard.
