Hi everyone , I am back again with another one of my Extreme Birdhouses .This house is 4 ft square x 4 1/2 ft tall and made from scrap cedar .
It has 29 rooms and this one is going up in my yard :-)
I still have to caulk the seams as soon as i can pick up some red caulk .

Wow John, this is fantastic!
If I was a bird, I would be calling up to make reservations for the penthouse !!!!
Uhhhhhh, maybe I will anyway! LOL That is what I call a mansion extroardinaire!

Nice that you are keeping it for yourself.

Thanks for sharing

John, I really like the roof lines on this one. You have so many nice houses you’ve built, its hard to pick a favorite.

I’m guessing that most of your houses are sized for Purple Martins since they are apartment style. If not, what other types of birds roost in a multi-room house like this?

John great bird house… I am amazed every time you post a birdhouse on how big they are. Is this one a replica of a building or just your design?

Thanks Rob ! I got 50 percent of the idea for this one from a house around the corner from me and then i used 50 percent of my imagination for the rest :-)
