Hi everyone , Here is my newest Extreme Birdhouse . The wood is 120 year old reclaimed barn wood .I bought a truck load of the wood for $ 10.00 , it was being sold as fire wood .
This house is 69” x 45” x 53” tall and weighs about 350 lbs .

the birdhouse is amazing. I’m also amazed that you bought an entire truckload of reclaimed wood for just 10 dollars!

$10 for a truck load, talk about a bargain! Does that translate into $2 for an EBH? ;)

Thanks everyone ! Three quarters of the wood was bad but I still knew I could squeeze a birdhouse out of it :-)
