snake proof cat run plus awning window nightmare

Hi there, I've been trying to either buy an existing run to modify or possibly find bits to build one from scratch but I don't know the best way to do it. I've seen loads of runs while Google searching but I don't really know what materials would be the best to use or what design to run with. Unfortunately there isn't anything coming up for me that promises to be snake proof. To make things more difficult, Im not allowed to get a pet door fitted into a window and the doors don't have flyscreens or security screens. Only 2 or 3 windows have flyscreens but every window in this place I'm renting are awning (wind out) windows. I can't find any connection kit such as a tunnel or joining part that will function as an entry/exit from the bottom of an awning window for my cat. The only thing i can find is some vent kit for one of  those portable air con machines.

Has anyone on here heard of anything available which could help me please? I'm desperate ๐Ÿ˜ž

I would think a Perspex panel would look better then you could use a more standard glass door flap.

Rest of it is relatively easy, a photo would help.
