      Andy, I have not built one yet but someone gave me one that I am going to use to make a pattern for more. Dan
      info for all: --- "I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me."

        If you can get your hands on this issue:
        Woodworker's Journal, August 2002, Vol 26, #4

        On page 42 there is an article and plans on the bat house that is on the site you gave the link too.

        I have accumulated quite a pile of scrap pieces of 3/4" plywood from making cabinets for the shop. Though they use Cedar, I'm sure my plywood with Olympic stain will work just fine for a good many years. It's all BCX grade ply.

        I have not built one yet, but after reading the article last fall, I plan on building several for around our nearly 2 rural acres. I will enjoy a few small projects like this before I jump into my next large one.

            I have that issue. One question is the roof dado is that cut @ 90degrees or 30 degrees?
