How to build a bug hotel

One of my goals is to attract more bugs and bees to our garden. Besides for planting flowers, flowering herbs and the vegetable flowers, I have wanted to make a bug hotel for absolute ages after seeing one at the Bishops Court Community Gardens 2 years ago.

So today my youngest son, his cat and I made one based on this video below.

We don't have his fancy planter on the top but this area bursts into bloom from now through winter with my favourite flower - Nasturtiums.

Here are our pictures of today's work. We used what we had ling around except for the hardboard which was given to us by Builders Warehouse as it was damaged.
