To cut back on the cost of shipping we've started our own build it yourself kits. This flying squirrel nesting box kit has been previously assembled so that we know all pieces fit together when built properly. All you need is a drill with a phillip's head screwdriver bit and the ability to follow directions. This is a novice to intermediate level building project and should take 15-30 minutes. It has roughly 14 1 5/8" screws and 4 small hinge screws to keep everything in place. Even though all holes are pre drilled, please screw the screws in very slowly or you may crack the wood. A JPEG illustration will be sent to you upon purchase and all pieces are labeled.
This house is approx. 13" tall x 7.5" wide x 7.5" deep and comes with an 9.25" hinged lid and screw closure (not shown in picture). It features grip strips and air vents on 3 sides, drainage holes underneath, a half guard under the top entrance hole and two 1.5" entrance/exit holes with block guards. Comes with 2 exterior grade screws for mounting.
Also available as a rehabber release cage model which has slightly different features:
Same dimensions and hinged lid as above, blunt hook closure, no block guards, comes with 2 bolts, 6 washers and 2 wing nuts for cage mounting.
This is for southern or northern flyers only. Greys will not fit as you can see from the picture below.
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.
