Hi everyone ! Here is my newest batch of Extreme Birdhouses . They are roughly 24” square and made from white cedar . All the insides are removable for easy cleaning .

I hope you know John, that you are an absolute master at what you do. I have really enjoyed looking at your bird house creations over time. I’m still waiting to see a photo of one of these “extreme birds” that inhabit these beauties. :)

Well done my friend.

Wow, it is Christmas gift time again and you made a great batch of houses like you did last year, so nice. I sew you make houses, what you do is much harder and skilled.

What a great video! Thanks for taking the time to make it. Those birds look like they are having a whale of a time. Your place must be mecca for them. Incredible houses.

BEAUTIFUL BIRDY HOUSES. REMINDS ME OF MY MOM. SHE WOULD SPEND HER LAST NICHOL ON BIRD FEED FOR HER FEEDERS. SHE ALWAYS SAID, “ONCE YOU START FEEDING THEM YOU HAVE TO KEEP DOING IT, OR ELSE THEY WON’T KNOW HOW TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES.” DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S TRUE OR NOT, BUT SHE BELIEVED IT.

Fantastic bird houses !!! Just in time for the birds to get out of that cold snowy weather.

John, I would love to see how the inside can be cleaned, are there removable panels? Pat
