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 and drill bits.
The finishing guide covers choosing a paint color, as well as, where and how to install your bat house for the best chances of success.
Made using global materials in the USA by us in our BatShop!

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 5 pack ships in a 29x17x8 box and weighs approximately 40 lbs.

Will order again. Enjoyed the simple instructions, BCI requirements met so bats are more likely to use, and they look cute! If anyone is hosting an event and has specific time requirements be aware they are on Eastern time.
