Over a dozen bat species in North America might make our DreamRoost their home. W\u003cem\u003ee suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, or are planning to mount onto a building.\u003c\/em\u003e Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"f-fp\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eThe DreamRoost is assembled by a professional woodworker by hand. 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. The cleat system makes hanging a DreamRoost as easy as hanging a picture frame. The cleats are also spacers and when against a building, rear vents on the DreamRoost allow bats to exit out the back to cool off, but are still protected from predators. This almost creates a second roost chamber.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eNo drilling or screw driving is required except when mounting to a post or building.

DreamRoost - Finished Single Chamber Cedar Bat House

Product Description
$194.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

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

Our DreamRoost Bat House is suitable for mounting on buildings 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.

  • Single Chamber - mount on buildings 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
  • Updated design by real bat biologists, built by master woodworkers
  • Made in USA
  • Approved by Merlin Tuttle's Bat Conservation

This Single 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 DreamRoost their home. We suggest this bat house if you already have an occupied bat house nearby, or are planning to mount onto a building. Because single chamber bat houses lack the thermal mass of larger structures, it is best to mount on buildings in cooler climates.

The DreamRoost is assembled by a professional woodworker by hand. 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. The cleat system makes hanging a DreamRoost as easy as hanging a picture frame. The cleats are also spacers and when against a building, rear vents on the DreamRoost allow bats to exit out the back to cool off, but are still protected from predators. This almost creates a second roost chamber.

No drilling or screw driving is 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 by master craftsman in south-central Pennsylvania using updated design concepts from real bat biologists across the country. 

How to install this bat house:

  1. Screw the included receiving cleat bracket 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. Metal telescoping poles sold by bird house vendors are too flimsy for any of our bat houses.
  2. The DreamRoost 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.
  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.

Bat House Return Policy: Within 30 days of receipt, full refund less $20 restocking fee. Shipping is non-refundable.

General Specifications:
Safe holding capacity: ~36 bats @ 2 bats per linear inch of roosting crevice
height: 24.5''; width: 18.5''; depth: 2.5''; weight: 10.5 lbs.
Internal chambers: 1; chamber spacing: 7/8'' 
Specifications subject to change without notice. Multiple orders will ship with 2 manuals maximum unless otherwise requested
(additional manuals are a free download).

  • If I order the DreamRoost - Finished Single Chamber Cedar Bat House today when can I expect delivery? Thank You

    We have 2 in stock and it would ship ~1 business day after ordering online. Depending where you live in the country expect 2-7 business days for delivery. Thanks!

  • Can I mount this on a tree?

    Yes, but the tree may allow for predators to more easily climb, and it may not get enough direct sunlight, depending where you are in the country. You will want to use stainless steel hardware (you must obtain this locally) to attach the mounting bracket to the tree. Using other hardware my damage or even kill the tree over time, and while unlikely, bolting anything into the tree may not be healthy for it.

  • l live in State College, PA. I like to ride my motorcycle on short trips in summer. Do you 'entertain' visitors? If yes, what is your address? Thanks.

    Hello Jim - we do not have an office open to the public but occassional participate in a public program; if so it would be listed here: https://batmanagement.com/pages/upcoming-events and you can subscribe for notifications.

  • I just hung a 2 chamber bat house 14 feet off the ground in my back yard in Boalsburg, PA. When can I expect some bats to find it and move in. I loved your videos. Thanks, Jim

    Jim- anytime between May-October you might see activity. To visually check the bat house, shine a spotlight into the bottom around dusk when it will be easier to see up inside. If you see a bat you'll want to only check it like this bi-weekly or so. Alternately you can place a newer trail cam set to video mode and certain models will record bats checking out the bat house. Currently we use Spypoint Solar Dark model set 6' from the bottom of the bat house, up on a 10' stand so that it doesn't point "up" so much and collect dew. - JC
