It's time to clean out the workshop!
Sometimes we get material that has more flaws than it's supposed to have but it "passed" inspection in order to get material out the door as quickly as possible. As we package our kits, we pull parts that are not up to our usual standard and put them aside. These parts require may require a more sanding, maybe a little wood putty, or maybe they didn't cut just right and we just don't want to spend the time needed to repair it. The defects are cosmetic and don't affect the usefulness of the bat house itself, they just need more TLC than we want to give them right now.
Quantities are limited.

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.
No mounting brackets needed to hang.

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.
