Build a possum house

Build a possum house

Help Possums by building them a cute house for them to live in and sleep out of the cold!

Heres how:

  • You can use any timber you like to make a possum box (except chipboard, which disintegrates rapidly outdoors). 12mm ply is excellent.
  • Drill four 5 – 7mm holes through the floor of the box near each corner to allow any water that might get in to drain out.
  • Nesting material isn’t essential but a few handfuls of dead leaves would provide comfort and insulation.
