Rick’s having a blast at building one of John's Extreme Birdhouses
He’s been working on this Cape Cod house for a couple of weeks. Not much left to go – the roof and dormers and then mounting it to a post!

You can see a closeup of the front at the ””bunnies project.

oh.. forgot to say that the wood is stuff that we had kicking around in the shop. The bottom part is a pine board and the top is some of the old barn board from my great-grandfather’s farm. The bottom base is the headboard from an old waterbed.

That’s some swank dwelling for your feathered friends. Nice to use reclaimed lumber for the project as well.
