About this Batty Item

Hosting a bat house building workshop and need a pre-cut kit, then this pack is for you. 

There are 5 - One Chamber Bat House Kits - BCI Certified


Are you a Do-It-Yourself kind of person but just don't know what makes a good bat house?

Then this kit is for you !  Perfect kit for adults and kids who like to build things.


This bat house kit is designed to meet all 10 of Bat Conservation International (BCI) certification requirements, once built and painted.  Its unique tab and slot design makes assembly so easy a first grader can do it.  The kit comes mitered, grooved and ready to assemble. 

Each box contains enough parts for 5 one chamber bat houses, including screws and drill bits.  Also included is one instruction sheet and one finishing guide.  

Each one chamber kit can house an estimated 50 - 100 bats (depending on species). 


Now approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation (MTBC).


Be sure to check out the "Videos from the Bat Cave" tab for product videos!


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 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 in the USA using global materials by us in our BatShop!

Kit Specifications:

     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 38 lbs.

  1. So fun and easy to put together 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2020

    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.
