This is a large log cabin birdfeeder I built to scale (1”=1’). The cabin measures 2’ x 4’ with a 1’ wrap around covered porch which makes the overall dimensions 4’ x 6’. The feeder is mounted aprox. 6’ off the ground on a real cherry tree base I had to cut due to disease. As you can see by the pictures, I added exposed posts, beams & rafters. All the lumber was recycled from 100 year old rough sawn pine siding I renoved from a remodeling project. The roof was made with corrugated galvanized steel. The upper most roof section comes off so that an entire 50 lb. sack of birdseed can be poured in. There is a hopper inside that allows the seed to funnel to slots at the base around the cabin into the porch section. Thanks for looking.
