Here are a few more of my Extreme Birdhouses .
They are 22” square , 6 rooms and made from scrap cedar decking . This is also the first time using yellow and navy blue on the roof .
These houses take about 4 hours each to build using nail guns of course :-) .

Love them. Four hours, does that include the cutting of the wood or just building and painting them?

What do you use for the ridge? I can’t make it out on the pictures.
Very nice work by the way, I actually have purchased one of your plans and I’m about to put the finishing touches on it for my Mother in-law’s birthday. (I need the brownie points) Thanks.
