WOW these are amazing how long does it take you to make one of these including measuring and all. You sure do a magnificent job great work.

I am guessing that you have very upscale birds in your neighborhood? Seriously though, this are very impressive.

Thanks guys ! I built both houses at the same time and it took a week to build them .Most of the measuring is done by eye so it goes much quicker .

Do birds actually nest in there, and is there a way to clean them out?

What a great job. I definitely have to show your web site to others.

Note: When I click on your web address, a yahoo error message comes up. send me a message if
you find the error on your page so I can send it to other folks.

John – Thanks. That link made my browser freeze, then throw up and explode twice, but I clicked on your projects link and checked them out there. Those are some neat birdhouses.

Hi John, a couple more grand and well done EX-tream birdhouses. Always love to see your latest creations. Are you still working on that “Massive” birdhouse?

Awesome work John… Just spent a fair amount of time looking over your website, am actually suprised that these are completed over the course of a week! Good that your birdhouses are occupied, have one Rock City bird house out by the pond and the only thing that ever moved in was a snake… May be a connection there :P Thank you for sharing…

Thanks Dan ! I don,t have any problem getting birds to move in . I put a large house up about 6 weeks ago and it already has 2 families in there . The mother is feeding her baby .

Certainly a beautiful mental image… Mine seem to prefer nesting on the motion sensor and pointed fence posts :) Must have missed that one, especially incredible, would be working for months to attain hopefully half the result… I want to move in

Wow, was admiring and see now that no mental image was intended, wondered quickly about having one side with a window and one with a castle/old ranch like brattice. Now I see mom :) Very cool… Do you have a castle bird house?
