I like the you you replicate the windows and doors on your birdhouses John. I assume that they are the removable parts so you can clean out the rooms?

Thanks Darrell ! To clean this all you have to do is lift the house off and pull the best from the bottom . The house weighs about 50 lbs plus the base .

I like it but what kind of post would you use to support it?

NO swimming pool and double glazing very poor. But I would say in fact this is for the birds maybe too good for them but a lovely budgie palace. Alistair

Thanks Paul and Alistair ! I mount these on a single pole . This house is around 70 lbs so a 8” diameter pole is perfect for this size . It will be mounted about 8 ft off the ground.

Here is a example of a 500 lb birdhouse on a single post .

Amazing as always, you must have an assembly line on how quick you make these monsters! Well done.
