Bat House Samples
The Single Cell bat house was designed for the males to reside in as they are loners and don't want anything to do with pregnant females or the pups (Bachelor Pad).
The Double Cell or Chamber is an alternative bat pad for the males to live in, just one cell larger (Double Cell Deluxe Clubhouse).
The Three cell is for the females to raise their pups in and away for the males (Triple Cell Deluxe Nursery)
The Four Cell is a larger bat house that will accommodate passerby bats and keep them away from the main residents (Four Cell Deluxe Motel complex).
The Five Cell Bat House is designed for a colony, or life style residence, as it can hold up to 675 mature female & male bats. No pups allowed (Five Cell Super Deluxe Condo)

High Quality Construction
Customer Review: The house arrived early Saturday morning in excellent shape and I'm very impressed by the build quality. Being an engineer and hobbyist woodworker, I appreciate the excellent wood products you use and your attention to construction details. I was very impressed by the completeness of the accompanying documentation - most companies these days simply send the product without any support included. I very much support companies that ask for feedback from their customers. Thank you, Hap M. Montville. NJ.
We have spent many sleepless nights and countless research hours to develop high quality, hand-crafted, cedar bat houses for your bat friends.
Our MTBC & BCI Certified Cedar Bat Houses are constructed with our aggressive Five Notch System for higher standards of quality, function, and durability. Our unique finger joint wall system and rabbet joint design construction ensures that our bat houses will last for many years of service for your "bat friends".
Don't be fooled by 90% of the other bat house designs in the marketplace. Most do not work. Over the past 5 years everybody has jumped on the band wagon to gain their part of the all mighty dollar and built bat houses that are not manufactured according to any research studies or standards, therefore rendering them to be purely useless.
We produce the only bat houses on the market with a metal roof and back. We are the innovator of this design! See construction issues to avoid for more information. Also check out our Bat Houses Comparison page where we compare the quality of 4 other bat house manufacturers with our own product.
Why offer sub-standard housing for your "bat friends" when you can offer them draft-free, high quality, MTBC & BCI certified and hand-crafted cedar bat houses that are Made in the USA and will last many years?
