just finished this a couple hours ago—-minus the light on top and the perches——she is way too heavy for me too pick up now—-and too big to go out my shop door, looks like my end wall is coming down—gonna set it up with a bucket truck——-made out of treated pine and stained——40 inches in diameter and 38 in tall—-28 apartments—i say never again—lol—thanks for looking—-greg

That is one huge birdhouse…How do the birds know what unit is the one they nest in? I’ve buitt a few birdhouses but they were single dwellings.

That’s a hotel not a house! – a whole extended family plus a few guests could move in!

Nice job!

That’s one big bird house. Are you serious about it being to big to get out of your shop?

It’s a shame something so wonderful will soon be covered in bird poop!

Great job Greg !
I find the birds don,t make that much mess at all on the houses . I think they save it for my neighbours yard ;-)
