Bird Brick Houses boxes are maintenance-free integrated bird and bat boxes, designed to be quick and easy to build into the outside skin of a building. This includes metric at 75mm courses and most imperial UK bricks at 3″ courses in Stretcher, English or Flemish quarter bond. Soldier bond can be accommodated via a modified box. Non Standard bricks can be accommodated in purpose made boxes.
The back of the box protrudes into the cavity by around 25mm or 1″; the swift and starling boxes, being deeper protrude by around 65mm or 2.5″ – which avoids bridging the cavity. While our core business is bulk manufacturing for fitting in new housing estates and industrial units (to counter the inevitable loss of habitat), Bird Brick Houses can supply bird and bat boxes for retro-fitting into an existing structure.
We arrange collection of bricks from the site, these bricks are then used to construct the Bird Brick Houses for that specific site. The finished bird homes are returned ready to fit un mortared. We also hold a large supply of some commonly used bricks – please contact us for details on our brick matching service (from our stock of bricks we will try and make your boxes in the closest match to your brickwork).
An efficient manufacturing process allows us to deliver most orders within a 5-7 working days, following the safe receipt of bricks from the site.
The table below covers the most common species that are likely to be attracted, together with siting guidance. It is not an exact science and it may be found that species other than the ones which may be targeted take up residence instead. It can also take time for birds and bats to start using the boxes.
