Made from scrap pine, I saved anything that was 3/4×3/4 and put them back for about six months. started out just making a little log cabin but it got away from me. The birds stop and look in but decide they can’t afford the rent and fly of. My mom put the old nest and bluebird on the porch as a joke.

Looks great! I’ve been thinking of something similar. I’ll start saving all the scraps for this.

Looks like one of John’s birdhouses but a lot smaller.

I’m sure that birds will finally move in. Are the holes the appropriate size for the birds that you want to raise.

Birdhouse? It looks about the size of my real house! Nice rustic look. I’m surprised the birds don’t move in. Could it be the finish or maybe it’s too drafty?

If I was a bird I would move in, whats the rent?

Keep the rent high so you can keep out the rif raf.

Nice work
