Thanks Guys!
Bat Conservation International also has lots of info and plans:

One of the trickiest things is picking the right place to hang the box. Bats can be picky.
Yes, with a little more research, I've found that you have to but them in really sunny areas. I did end up making one, and I had to paint it black to absorb the most heat. Bats like it really warm apparently!
Hey, that's a nice thing to do.

This site will tell you how to build several kinds and also anything else about bats that you need to know.
