To DIY or not

Hi everyone.

I am looking to get my first cornsnake and have been researching about enclosures a lot...and am confused as to what I need.

I canít decide what is best: a tub, a brand terrarium, a converted aquarium, or a self built wood enclosure.

Has anyone ever converted a TV stand into an enclosure?

For building one myself, I live in Japan so options are limited. At my local diy store I can pick up some wood that translates to Paulownia, pine, cypress or mdf type sheets.

Are these all ok for corn snakes? I know cedar is not an option and pine is frowned upon.

If I lined the inside of the enclosure with acrylic sheeting and sealed it with silicone would that negate the effects of the pine?

I am also not sure how much ventilation to provide. We get very hot and humid summers here (35 degrees C or more). Is there ever a necessity to provide cooling to the enclosure? Or can a corn snake thrive in a hotter environment?
