This Birdhouse is made from a recycled coffee can, I used scrap wood to make all of the roof shingles,perch,
picket fence,bird bath,bench and table. I placed a canopy over the entrance Hole The left side has two dorm
windows The chimney is a 3/4”square piece of wood with grooves to give it a look of a brick chimney.

Cool Birdhouse. Looks very detailed.
