Three Chamber Bat House Kit - 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.  Includes screws and instructions.   This three chamber kit can house an estimated 150 - 220 bats (depending on the species).

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

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!  

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

Specifications:

     Dimensions:  H 28" x W 18" x 4.5 D "

     Weight:   13 lbs.

     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.

    Excellent product - love the design

    I really appreciated the ease at which this could be put together, and having the screws and drill bit included in the package was appreciated. Instructions were very clear, as well as nice youtube videos for those needing visual learning. Can't wait for my new tenants!

    Easy and good looking family project - 3 chamber

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Apr 2019

    My son and I enjoyed a nice afternoon assembling the bat house together. Instructions were clear and assembly was a breeze. We wall mounted to brick and added a couple of mounting points on the bottom, just in case. We're looking forward to some tenants moving in!

    Easy to assemble

    The product arrived quickly and all the pieces were there. It came with clear instructions on how to assemble it and took me less than 20minutes. The wood is sturdy and ready to be painted with no splinters. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Consumer's dream

    Posted by Dennis Krusac on 20th Nov 2017

    Often when you buy a kit, it comes with challenges to construct. Not this one. Everything was precision cut and milled, making construction a breeze. Even the baffles slid in smoothly. Can't go wro with this kit.

    3 Chamber Bat House Kit - Easy To Build

    Posted by abbottx4 on 7th Mar 2017

    I ordered this kit not knowing if I'd have trouble putting this together. What an easy build, and had this ready to paint in 30 minutes. You can't go wrong with this bat house. You don't need to be a professional wood worker,thank God, and when you do it yourself, there's just a special satisfaction on completing the build.

    Couldn't have been easier - professional results

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Oct 2015

    I bought this as a kit. It couldn't have been easier to assemble. The finished product looked like it had been purchased at a high end store. I had it up and ready for "bat week".

    Great Service and Product

    Posted by Thomas Quenzer on 28th Sep 2015

    I am pleased with my 3 Chamber Bat Kit. They were happy to convert my kit to Cold Weather, which is suggested for my area. The Kit comes with easy to follow directions for assembly. You can't go wrong. Great gift idea! They will gladly answer any questions or concerns you have prior to purchase and after your purchase.
