David Holmgren, co-originator of permaculture, uses the same system in his house. It's rather brilliant on both space and housework saving IMO and we will be implementing it into our new house when we build.
Many years ago (around 1977) we had a 'tokkeh', an Indonesian gecko. That's a much larger house-dragon. First we kept it in a terrarium, but it did not stay there. Both the tokkeh and the crickets we fed it escaped ... which caused troubles with neighbours (we lived in a large old house devided in rental studios in those days).
"Also, just as you want men to do to you, do the same way to them" (Luke 6:31)
Awesome! Previous to us remodels rendered the dishwasher spot as too small, so we turned it into a really large dish rack. Seriously helps me enjoy dishes. That and water sprayer and spraysoap mixture. I rinse, sprits, walk away, rinse, move on.
More amazing is this whole concept of a house dragon. We have like no lizards or snakes here, but plenty of centipedes and spiders. Did you let them go or are they native there?

They are completely native and were living in the house for decades when it was empty. We took great care to not drive them away when we renovated the place, and left little hiding places unplastered around the back of the stone lintels above the windows so they'd always have somewhere familiar to hide.
Here's one in slight shock watching the old roof being removed.
I love the little critters. So much less trouble than other pets, and surprisingly little poop. Plus they eat flies.
