This project was for a co-worker hosting a reception for a soon-to-be married couple at his home. The church greeted the couple as they walked to his front door.

The construction is from a single 1×12x8 pine board. For the windows, I incorporated stain glass from a hobby store. The “couple” is a standard cake topper from Walmart.

The church birdhouse is functional, with a removable roof for access to cleaning out old nests. The total hours for this project, minus painting, is approximately six hours.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice. This would also make a great looking mailbox design.

I think that is a great idea and you did a good job on it.

I’ve done several similar to yours, but I don’t think any were quite this nice. Really fine!

Very nice rendition of a typical country church. I look at it and cannot help but thinking of the old hymn Church In The Wildwood.
