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, a drill bit and a finishing guide. Please note: we no longer include the decorative bat.
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!

Dimensions: H 28" x W 18" x 4.5 D "
Bat Capacity*: about 150 to 220 (depending on the species)
Cubic Inches of Roosting Space: 660
*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 29x17x4 box and ships at 15 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.

This kit is great. So we’ll built. Super easy to put together. Such a great value compared to pre built kits. AND it’s a fun project if you’re doing it with some kids. Very pleased. Now I just hope some bats agree and populate our house!
well made and all things fit together as hoped. still need to paint it, but otherwise, ready!!
Affordable, attractive, well-built and easy to put together. Wish the little bat applique was still available but the carved bat at the bottom is cute.
The bat house went together very nicely I think it is just great.
I built the house last year and during the summer it attracted one bat. After a month or so, another bat moved in. The house has been through very hot summer days, low teens temperatures, snow, ice, wind and rain. I just counted 16 bats leaving the house this evening, so I am delighted. I followed the instructions of what color to paint it and how high to install it in the proper position to the sun. I'm a complete novice and just followed directions.
It was fun putting together the bat house! The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and the finished product looks great, if I do say so myself. Now I'm just eagerly hoping for bats to arrive soon!
I just built my new 3 chamber bat house, so I can only review the house itself, not if it attracts bats. That's yet to be seen. The construction and assembly of the house is excellent. It goes together very easily. I'm pretty sure I overdid the silicone sealer (exterior, paintable), but no matter. If the bats like it as much as I do, then we're in business.
Really pleased with how easily I was able to put this kit together following the included instructions. Very thorough, all needed parts (including driver bit and screws) are included, so that all you have to provide is caulk and time.
The 3 chambered bat house was well designed and easy to assemble thanks to many pre-cut slots and accurate measurements. I watched the online video and it was straight forward.
My Habitat for Bats kit was exactly as described and expected. Communication with the company was superb. Shipping was prompt. The kit went together very well. And the bats moved out of my attic and into the house immediately. I've had the house up several weeks and will do the exclusion this weekend. I am very satisfied.
I ordered the three chamber Bat House Kit for my husband. He is very handy and had no trouble assembling it. He mounted it on a 20' pole, anchored in concrete and with bolts in the base, so he can lower it easily. It's only been up a few weeks and no bats yet, but hope they will soon.
Awesome bat house ...this kit met all my expectations. No bats in my house yet but I';m confident there will be.
