Hello everybody, these house were built on a challenge that I couldn’t build them. Well here is proof I can. There is 2 variations, 2 story 6 room and 1 story 3 room. Most of the designing I did my self but my customers seem to love them due to high sales of these 2 houses. Hope you guys enjoy and as always there will be more to come in the future. Any questions please feel free to ask.

William9949 posts in 2842 days #4 posted 07-09-2011 05:03 AM I hate angles myself. However, when confronted with them, I wind up enjoying the challenge of them. When it’s all over with though, I still hate those angles. William Bentley Jr79 posts in 2886 days #5 posted 07-09-2011 05:10 AM Yep I hate them to but a friend showed me a easy way to figure the out: 360 divided by number of sides u want then split anwser in half ; 360 divided by 6 is 60 divided by 2 is 30 deg. on each edge of the woodgiving u a 6 sided bird house. Figuring the roof i do it by looks get the pitch i want then worry about the angles. my roofs are decent pitch and i use 22.5 deg. angle and 22 deg bevel William9949 posts in 2842 days #6 posted 07-09-2011 05:16 AM My problem usually isn’t figuring out what the angle should be, I’m good at math. My problem is getting my tools to cut accurately enough to make the angle I need it to be. Therfore, I have resorted to using scrap wood to set up my tools. I set my tools where it should be according to my guages and such. Then adjust it more exactly using scrap to make sure before I start actually cutting the stock I intend to use.
