Cool !
Must have been an enjoyable project to collect all those caps !
May just give the rest of us a good excuse to buy more beers too…

The beer caps are an interesting touch. How do you attach them?

Thanks for the comments.

Galirex – Collecting is almost as much fun as drinking the beer. Almost. I only use caps from beers I have personally drank/tried myself or with friends. No light beer caps on my houses!

woodman – I sell some and give some as gifts. This one was donated as a silent auction item to help raise money for a local church daycare.

Terry – pneumatic stapler.

Cool looking birdhouses, I like the roofing material. Must be hard work getting one of these ready. A friend just emailed me, we make some out of 24oz cans for the arts & crafts shows. He told me that he needed some help. He had 40 cans of beer to drink if I didn’t come help him. Gotta help,what are friends for.
