Terrarium Building (literally)

So, thinking of getting a custom built enclosure for my soon to be red tegu.. and it needs to be a minimum of 8x4x4. So I am trying to think of ways to get it built in a way that I can assemble and disassemble without anyones assistance.

I am unfortunately disabled, as well as a bit weak.

I wanted something easy to assemble and disassemble because I plan on moving in 2 years time and don't want to wreck an enclosure, as I find it wasteful.

I want to be able to make it more than structurally sound, so that you can mount lights inside (a lot of them- which are heavy).... and I want to make it a bit water proof because the tegu needs high humidity and well you can see where that goes.....

Was thinking of a 3/4th inch pvc being used. Or some kind of frame that I could just slide in and out.

Currently it's going to be in a 4x2x2 zen habitat (which I found out time after time that the quality is rather shoddy- despite major reptile keepers sponsoring them)..... but it needs to be moved in 2-3 months time.

Any ideas welcome.

I would look at industrial aluminum extrusion systems. They are modular so easy to assemble and disassemble and many are designed to accept solid panels so it would be easy to make a "room" and you can put framing wherever you want to support lighting, heaters...

Search online for "T slot framing". There are many brands and styles.
