My neighbor and I were cutting down some small trees that were bordering our properties. One of the tree stumps, about 5’ tall, made the perfect spot for a birdhouse. Since it bordered both of our property (just over the fence on the neighbor’s side), I decided to make a duplex birdhouse with entrances on both sides. Thus, from my yard it looks like it’s facing my house, but from my neighbor’s yard it look’s like it’s facing his house.
I used 4/4 pine for the structure and painted it red. The roof is covered with tar paper and some roof shingles. It made for a fun Sunday afternoon project. It is my first birdhouse, but I’m sure I’ll make more down the line.
