I built one of these for my dad for last Christmas based on plans found on eBay. My wife decide that she wanted one so this was the second which now sits in our back garden.
It’s made from marine ply and tongue and groove board from the hardware store. Wood is extremely expensive in England so it was the cheapest way I could find of building it, and it it made things easier as my skills at joining are pretty much non existent.
Within the wide opening made for doves I’ve put backboards painted black with a small hole in for smaller birds, so as to stop pigeons taking up residence. Internally it has six separate ‘rooms’. The dovecote is painted traditional white.
