This is probably one of my best houses yet. It is a 3 room custom cedar house I built for a customer to look like his house. This house is all cedar and a green metal roof with 3 dormers, and sits on a 4×4 post. Comments and questions are welcome, I’m always trying to build new things and get better at what i do build so any ideas will be greatly welcomed.

On these house I have come to know if you seperate the hole you will likely get bluebirds in all boxes. So with this house there is a hole on each end and one in the center of the back.

Thanks for all the comments, but I have to thank John Looser of Extreme Birdhouses cause he gave me the bug to build big houses, this one probably my largest yet. It measures 24”l x 10”w x 14”t.
