    There are tons of ways - you can simply use a cardboard box, a dish pan, a Rubbermaid tote, a milk crate, cat litter box -- those are just a few of the many, simple "things you might have around the house" things people have already used successfully for a nesting box - look around the house and you'll probably see even more.
