Interior design for the weird?

I have a small home office which also houses several varieties of exotic animal. How do I maximize my space usage and minimize the bending and lifting?

I currently keep several varieties of snake, as well as a pet bird, in my home office. The room is extremely small (6' x 10') and while everyone fits in there now, I'd like to make efficient use of the space in a way that helps me minimize bending - I have back issues and really prefer everything to be at waist height (I'm 5'8") to face height.
Is there a service or software or blog or person who will help me put together all the Tetris pieces into a coherent whole? Most of the "home design" sites and apps I've tried have involved furniture, which is great, but very few people require their couch to be exactly 48" long and begin at waist-height off the ground (one of the more awkward cages). If it just let me define blocks of particular size, that would be perfect. Or if interior designers have been known to work with such tiny spaces and unusual objects, that'd be nice too... but I'm not up for paying a $1,000 consulting fee to design ONE ROOM.
