Bathouses Come in Pairs

From White Pine Barnboard

Two bathouses can be built in 2 - 3 hours or less

I can produce two good-sized bathouses from one pine board (barnboard - 1" x 12" x 8ft.), usually in one easy working afternoon. I supply the plans below so that interested viewers who own a table saw and chop saw can give them a try.

Bats are indeed making a comeback in Wortley Village

Some builders add a piece of window screen to the inside to help bats climb into the cavity, but I cut grooves at 3/4 inch intervals (with table saw) on the inside before assembling all the pieces. I suspect wee bats can clamber into the cavity without this assistance but it does provide another talking point when someone shows interest.
