The exterior is hardy 1'' thick cedar with all seams glued and sealed during assembly. The roof is a single black 1\/2'' thick slab of recycled plastic, which will resist weathering for decades. A block of wood in the roof buffers bats from extreme heat, and releases heat more slowly thru the evening. Our iconic decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating. When used with our Post Mount Kit, or appropriate spacers against a building, rear vents on the DreamLodge allow bats to exit out the back to cool off, but are still protected from predators. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eNo assembly required except when mounting to a post or building.

Related instruction manuals for the DreamLodge: All About Bat Houses.

Our DreamLodge Bat House is suitable for mounting on buildings and posts anywhere in North America. Handmade in Pennsylvania by BCM, this is a very solid cedar bat house completely assembled with a virtually indestructible recycled black plastic roof and finished complete with hand-rubbed polyethylene.

  • Three Roost Chamber - mount on sunny buildings or posts for best results
  • Recycled plastic roof - unbeatable durability
  • Interior permanently roughened in random directions, better for bats!
  • 1'' Cedar boards, beautiful gift and furniture quality woodgrain
  • Incorporates proven design features from real biologists
  • Made in USA
  • Approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation

This Three Chamber Bat House is perfect for gifts or where intending to mount in a showy location. Over a dozen bat species in North America might make our DreamLodge their home. 

We have assembled all the elements of the DreamLodge for you. The exterior is hardy 1'' thick cedar with all seams glued and sealed during assembly. The roof is a single black 1/2'' thick slab of recycled plastic, which will resist weathering for decades. A block of wood in the roof buffers bats from extreme heat, and releases heat more slowly thru the evening. Our iconic decorative bat design on the front is actually a vent that helps prevents bats from overheating. When used with our Post Mount Kit, or appropriate spacers against a building, rear vents on the DreamLodge allow bats to exit out the back to cool off, but are still protected from predators. 

No assembly required except when mounting to a post or building. Each interior surface has been permanently roughened by hand in various directions for the best "batholds" possible. We DO NOT use screen material for baffles as it has been shown to shred over time and pups can become trapped under it. This box should be painted appropriately for your area, and generally plan on black or a shade of brown (see color chart for your area). Includes our manual with complete finishing, site determination, installation, and maintenance instructions.

Created and built in south-central Pennsylvania. A pole mount is suggested if placing this box on a post. 

How to install this bat house:

  1. Screw the included receiving cleat brackets onto a 4''x6''x16' post (~$45 at local lumber yards) cemented 3' into the ground, or attach to the sunny side of a structure, a few feet below the eves. 
  2. The DreamLodge simply sits on the cleat, similar to hanging a picture frame. Secure the bottom with a few included exterior deck screws to prevent wind from detaching the bat house. The cleat brackets form space for another roost crevice. 
  3. Say "Just add bats!"

See our Resources & Free Advice for step-by-step instructions on how to mount this bat house on a post or building.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • Is cedar better than plywood? If so, do you have a dyi cedar kit? Or, is it possible to buy one? Thank you.

    There is absolutely no data showing bats prefer one kind of construction material over another. With occassional repainting and a relatively dry location, our plywood-based bat houses should last as long as the bat houses made from thicker cedar boards. Note that both the Dream series (cedar) and the Day series (plywood) both include roofs made from virtually industructable recycled plastic lumber, and mounting schemes take all the stress off the roof. So, its really a matter of personal preference; if mounting in a showy location on the property, some might consider the look of the Dream houses to be preferable. We are considering offering a cedar kit.
