Approx: 7.25" x 8.25" x 9.75" with a 13" back.
We now offer to seal our boxes with nontoxic Acri Soy seal, It is a polymer sealer and does not resemble the polyurethane sealers in any way. The sealer has no odor and is barely detectable. It leaves a slightly rough surface which is good for the squirrels. They will not slip off it like they would a traditional sealer. Once I seal the box you will not be able to paint or stain it. This sealer is used by many zoos. Sealing the box may alter the color slightly and a reddish tint around some of the screws is an indication that the box has been sealed. You can also pop open the box and feel the smooth, unsealed raw wood interior vs. the rough exterior. Please allow 2-3 extra days for drying time if you are choosing the ‘sealed’ option.
Whether boxes are sealed or not, they will darken over time. This is not mold. It is the natural process of the wood.If you choose to seal the box yourself be sure to only use a non toxic sealer from a place like earthpaint.net. They offer many colors and you will only need one pint to cover 1-2 houses.
We only use pine. Cedar has perfumes and oils that are not good for the squirrels to breathe in. Food grade nontoxic glue and homemade wood putty are also used to fix cosmetic issues. Exterior grade screws and nails are used as fasteners.
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.
