Kids love this kit - This is the kit we use in our workshops!


Tools needed: small power drill

          Additional tools you may find helpful:  clamps or masking tape

Supplies needed:  paintable latex caulk, paper towels and water-based paint for exterior finish


We use high quality building materials:  exterior grade ACX plywood.  All interior surfaces have cut grooves giving bats a permanent gripping surface that will never come loose and entangle or injure the bats.  Kit comes with instructions, screws, nails and a cut-out bat to decorate the front of the house.


The manual covers choosing a paint color, as well as, where and how to install your bat house for the best chances of success.


Made in the USA using global materials by us in our BatShop!   UPC #869513000101

Our Kit Design is copyrighted and cannot be reproduced without express written permission.


     Dimensions:  H 28" x W 18" x D 2"

     Weight:   8 lbs.

     Bat Capacity*:   about 50 to 73 (depending on the species)

     Cubic Inches of Roosting Space:  220


 *We attempt to be honest with our estimates allowing approx. 3 cubic inches for each bat. This includes an allowance for unused space since the bats will not pack the house top to bottom. Some species will crowd in very tightly, others will not.  Here's the math: "Cubic Inches of Roosting space / 3 Cubic Inches = estimate of capacity". 



Why does it cost so much to ship?  


Our bat houses are full size and certifiable.  They are not toys or small bird house style kits - this kit ships in a 29x17x3 box and ships at 10 lbs.


If you purchase more than one kit, the kits will be flat packed in as few boxes as possible and your shipping charges will be adjusted to compensate.  If you prefer to have each kit individually box, please let us know in the order comments.

  1. Great bat house 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2019

    We put this together as a family (with 2 teenagers) and it was very straightforward and easy. We are giving it to my parents as a gift and hopefully they will get some bats! Thanks for an easy project, and a safe bat house.

  2. Great Product and Customer Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2019

    Building these bat house kits was the perfect project for the group of teenage nature enthusiasts that I lead. Habitat for Bats was easy to work with and went above and beyond with customer service. It was a pleasure to do business with them!

  3. Wonderful home project and natural pest control 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2019

    The information on the website was good and helped me understand what to order. The ordering process was easy. I received email confirmation and updates until bat house arrived. All parts were included and it was an easy project. It was fun to paint and enjoyed having my own touches. No bats yet but excited to have them find their new home.
    I do wish the brackets or whatever to hold the bat house was included or at least you had the option to buy them separately. I did go to the local hardware store to get a pole and brackets but it would have been good to have the brackets already.

  4. house ready for occupancy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2018

    parts were precise and fit well. the only problem I had was the roof. could never seem to get it to fit right; but added a lot of extra caulking and three coats of exterior latex(that should keep the little rascals dry ha!). I made sure to put plenty of paint on the exposed raw edges so moister would not get in and cause swelling of wood or rot later on. Didn't know if I was to paint the landing area or not, was concerned about paint harming them but did put one light coat on it. also no one could answer how long you should wait after painting before hanging, again concerned about fumes harming bats. Yes very satisfied with kit. jd.

  5. Very easy to put together 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2017

    I loved the included instructions and the screws, especially the fact that the special torx bit was even provided! I recommend dry fitting the pieces together before you actually screw and caulk everything, just like the instructions state. You can definitely tell this was prepared by someone who truly cares about quality.
