Christmas is coming shortly so i decided to pop off a dozen stocking stuffers for the holiday . These houses are all made from 90 – 100 year old reclaimed barn wood .They are all 22” square and each have 6 rooms . It took me a week to build them all . I had to build the saw benches too , i,m running out of them fast :)

That looks like a good weeks work John. I wish I was a productive. They are still to your usual high quality standard. I like those colorful roofs too.

Those are neat little dwellings. Any bird would be proud to take refuge there. Bravo Zulu

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments !
They go together pretty fast when i do them in stages . I build all the shells first ,then the insides . After that i cut all the steel , grind off the rough edges and then paint it. While the paint is drying i build the bases .

Thanks Dan and Diane !
These houses are mostly for sparrows but if you drilled the holes a little bigger they could be used for purple martins or bluebirds .

Thanks. I knew the hole was small so I knew it had to be a small bird.
