Hi everyone , Here are my latest Extreme Birdhouses .
They are all made from white cedar . The cape cods are 32” square and the other 3 gabled houses are 32×28”
These 8 houses took me 1 week to build :-)

Love them especially the different colored roofs. How can you build these all in a week, are you counting cutting out the pieces or just the week to build after doing all the cutting first? Looks like you are doing your Christmas run of gifts early so are these gifts or for orders for customers?

It took me a week including planning the cedar and ripping it into logs . Preparing all the wood for 8 birdhouses took 4 hours alone . I save a lot of time by building them in stages .
Painting is what takes the longest .

Man those are great looking houses! I think I’m moving in as it might be nicer than mine now. LOL One question though, what the heck is that white stuff in the backround? LOL These are great, have you considered doing a blog on the stages of building these great hotels?
What kind of bird live in here? And how much rent are you getting?

Great post.
