Basic nesting boxes are wonderful starter boxes for squirrel lovers as well as great boxes for sturdy rehabber cages.
All houses feature:
All houses are made from unfinished pine. We do not use cedar as it contains oils and perfumes which aren't recommended by the rehabbers we work with. You can seal the houses yourself with a low or no VOC sealer or have us do it for you for an upcharge.
All of our boxes are species specific. These boxes are for Eastern greys or fox squirrels. if you need a red squirrel house or flyer house please check out those sections. If you don't know what kind of squirrel you have please message me with a picture and I will help you find the appropriate box.
All nesting boxes and feeders are generally built and shipped within 3-5 business days via USPS.
Deluxe houses offer more protection, porches and extended roofs for your critters.
All deluxe houses are:
These houses are made for grey squirrels or fox squirrels. If you need a house for a red or a flyer please check out those categories. If you don't know what kind of squirrel you have please send me a picture and I will help you find an appropriate house.

Are you in the New England area and want to help out with a citizen science project?
We are creating a line of boxes to help our new friends at the New England Flying Squirrel Society to map out flying squirrel locations.

We know that the cost of shipping some of our boxes across the country can be pricey
so we're turning some of our houses into build it yourself kits. All houses come pre drilled
and have previously been assembled to be sure everything fits. All pieces will be labeled and
a JPEG illustration will be send to you via email as to how to build your new house.
All you need is a drill or electric screwdriver with a phillips head bit and the ability to follow instructions.
Boxes will be labeled for novice and intermediate builders.
Right now we have a basic box and a rehabber's box available. If you're interested in a
red squirrel or flyer house kit please let me know and I'll put one together for you.
A collection of feeders for your wild friends.
NAS has worked with rehabbers since 2010 to design and build the absolute best squirrel houses on the market.
We release squirrels for our local rehab and proceeds from items sold go to help the animals in our care.

I love my new squirrel house and I love NutsAboutSkwerls! It is constructed with detail and quality and arrived within a week! I just got it up and don't have a resident just yet but I know they are out there as they love the water bucket as seen on camera and are at a higher elevation in the tree. Thank you so much!

These Squirrel nesting boxes are absolutely beautiful! They look like squirrel condos! They appear to be very safe, they have a guarded door, a porch and are very sturdy. You will not find a better quality nesting box/condo anywhere. The craftsmanship alone is enough to tell you the builder cares about what he is doing.
I ordered 4 boxes and they are really sturdy and great quality! They are bigger than I thought (which is awesome)! I will definitely be ordering more of these in the near future.
Zoomie, our rescued squirrel loves is box. After a slow release he is outside on our maple tree. It took him four days to accept the box in his pre-release cage. Very well made sturdy nestbox. Thanks!
After rescuing a baby squirrel and seeking help from a rehabber I decided to use my degree in Industrial Design to create products for these wonderful little critters.
