I had 10 minutes to spare and threw this birdhouse together from a scrap plank of pine :)

Looks mighty fine to me speedy! Your fine feathered friends will love it and soon they will be pooping on it and in it so why make it too pretty. LOL! Nice work!

I searched every where on the internet and could not find any “Rustic” birds. LOL

I have made hundreds of bird houses from rough wood. The birds love them.
The critical thing is the diameter of the entrance hole and the distance from the entrance to the bottom to help prevent predation of eggs and hatchlings from other critters (like raccoons and squirrels) and birds (like Jays and English sparrows). Just 1/8” difference in the hole diameter can make a difference between swallows and predatory English sparrows getting in. Also it helps to have an easy way to clean it out between uses.

LesB, They might become Rustic after living in it for a while LOL

Thanks for the tips :)

It’s already been checked out by a Coal Tit, so it could be OK.
