Bat houses ahead of schedule

January 29, 2012

Today I stained the inside surfaces a dark grey, almost black, with a water based stain per the instructions.

This is what the inside surfaces all looked like (before I stained them, obviously) with the grooves scored into them.

The almost finished products (caulking and exterior staining remain as well as installing a metal roof).

I’ll connect them back to back and create an additional chamber between them and then start preparing the mounting poles for the whole heavy thing.

Propped back to back, similar to the way they will be mounted (of course they will be trued – they are actually much more squared off than they appear to be in these pics).

After I stain them I have to put some sort of bat or batman stencil on them, otherwise I’m sure the neighbors would be so disappointed. 😉

    I certainly agree about the bat stencil… and you must take care with the color scheme…

    (cool project, btw).
