It wouldn't get a day/night cycle so it wouldn't be good for the snake :)

You prob be best getting shelves built which can house alot more snakes in a smaller space.
All you need is the broad shelving from B&Q and a heat mat strip which is what I was using for alot of my snakes.

Snakes do need a day/night cycle as hedwigdan has said.

It's always better to ask mate then at least you can make a better informed choice.

Yea a shed is a good idea.
But a few things to take into account beforehand.

1: Temperature during the winter will fall dramatically - how will you heat it ?

2: Security - if people know what you keep they might try and steal them. It happens more than you think and has happened to a few on here.

I had mine on the ground before and the temps were grand. My room is well lit though and they had a decent day/night cycle.
