Hi everyone , For the past 7 weeks i have been busy building 39 birdhouses and getting ready for spring . I plan on having 50 houses in total ready by the end of march . These houses are all made from white cedar .
They average between 2 – 3 ft square . I couldn,t quit fit them all in the pictures :-)

Your birdhouses are really nice! I am sure you will impress many others with them. I like the colores metal roofing you used. Is that regular metal roofing used in building construction?

Thanks Greg ! It is called barn master steel . It is used on the exterior walls of a barn .
I usually get it in bone white then i paint it .

Thanks everyone ! I have been building them in my kitchen for the last 2 months so it will be nice to get back out in the shop once things warm up again .

That’s cool, you should make your neighborhood. It would be a cool local attraction. Maybe a train to go around it? Reminds me of this little Christmas village thing I saw last December.
