    Extreme Birdhouses

    It has been a very busy summer and to end it off I just finished these two very large birdhouses . These houses are 9 1/2 ft wide x 6 ft deep x 7 ft 2" tall. These bird hotels both come with twin rooftop pools and they are made from white cedar .

    John, How great to see more of your wonderful work. I steer people to your pictures now and again when the subject of "a really big birdhouse" comes up. the ones you do that look like the main house are a real treat.

    John,
    Your work continues to bring me great joy. Only downside is my wife asking when I'm going to stop doing commission work and make something wonderful for our yard like John does.

    Kudos Sir - Bill

    Thank you everyone for the nice comments ! A lot of times I build things for my yard but as soon as I set them outside someone comes along and buys it so I never get ahead

    That's a good problem to have if you want to keep yourself supplied with materials and tools, I imagine.

    By the way, john, I put a couple of your pics on Facebook, attributing to you, and they have gotten a quite number of positive responses.

    Nice stuff. Do you do anything with feeders?
    It's wood dust. Saw dust would suggest a problem.

    Nice .. I assume the first two pics are of squirrel-resistant feeders ?

    If you run out of places to erect one of those bird houses, you can put one up in my yard. Really excellent work.
