My build has begun. I’m planning a viney planted rockface. I had some old foam rocks I made and they seemed to work perfect. So I’m running with it.

I started with some eggcrate...

Then I mocked up my branches before pulling out the spray foam...

The big mound of foam is going to be a planter/big mound of dirt for the foreground.

Screen enclosure shows up today. Then I spray foam the center crack! Yay!

With the help of the wife and kids, I made some vines...

Jute rope unraveled, covered in silicone and then covered in dirt mix.

Dirt mount planter for foreground, but the cage is shallower then I thought. :(

The foreground and the background...

Tonight I paint and hopefully start to add dirt to the spray foam. Leaving on vacation on Monday. I want it all setup when I’m gone.

Just about ready for my vacation... enclosure 99% finished!

Need some silicone to dry, then mount it to cage back and then add vines.
