    I just built one. You can make them cheap if you have some basic things around.

    1) you need the box - people use old coolers or buy a styrofoam one for $1
    2) you need heat - a single light bulb works well. Find an old lamp & pull the guts out etc. Have it inside the cooler
    3) you need a hygrometer - to tell the humidity & temp

    thats really all you need.
