I see you are making them smaller John. All the birds in your neighborhood already have a home. Or is the foreclosure marker driving the birds into smaller places. No more McMansions.

Looks great

John,

As always this is an upscale housing effort that is simply for the birds. :) (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself). Seriously this is a gorgeous project. I am sure the tenets will appreciate the effort that you put into this one.

Thanks for the post. I really enjoy seeing these.

Thanks everyone . I have 5 or 6 more smaller houses to build and maybe squeeze in another large one for my yard.

I love all your houses. Is the roofs made of siding and do you color them or are they the the color we see when you start out?

Thank you Diane and Jeff .
I use regular barn steel for the roofs . It comes in plain white then i paint it different colors.

They all look like real mansions. Did you model it after the frame in the background?
