Check out the grin on the boy’s face. He is having a proud time. I know a lot of birdhouse collectors would be all over this. Nice piece.

Thanks for the link to the Birch Bird house – this has given me ideas to keep my granddaughter occupied for a few days during the summer holidays, whilst she stays with us.

What a great family project thanks Bob. Is the tall bird house multi level? If you wish to share what are the dimensions. I’d like to draw it in SketchUp just for fun.

Thanks all . thought i would post his now as it makes a great seasonal gift.
Bruce, I just used standard 1×6 lumber so what ever the diamensions they were within thos parameters except for the roof that needed and overhang.
I should have made the tall house muti level and will do somethin about that inthe fall when I clean out the nests.

Bob: In case anyone wants a sketchup model, I added a sketchup drawing to the Google warehouse. Just search for bird house, condo

Fantastic Bruce. It should be a great project for any folks with 7- 12 year olds “pestering around” this summer.
