This was a spur of the moment type thing. I had alot of scraps laying around the shop and it hit me, a birdhouse with no worries of snakes. Most birdhouses you have to open the side or the front, well if a snake is there you just got bit. With this house you simply slide the bottom out of the house. I put a dado cut on both sides and the back, the front is cut a inch short to allow the bottom to slide. Along with a vent in the back and 2, 1/2 vents on both sides you get a real rounded bid house!
