Hi Mark

I make quite a few whirligigs. Most of them are designed "on the fly" and built without plans. Here are a few links to get you started. Whirligigs can be a lot of fun to build and are great use for scrap wood and old hardware.

California is getting worse by the day. As soon as the real estate market begins to recover we're out of here.

We are planning a road trip for October to try and find a new place. I have heard good things about North Carolina, Delaware and a few states in the mid-west.

I have a few more whirligig ideas in the works. I'll keep you posted.

SeYa ... Bill

It's a buyers market in the Pocono Mountains of PA in the area of NY/NJ/PA. Worth looking into.

On the other hand I know a 5 families that moved to the Carolina's from here.

Good Luck,
