These are very beautiful bird homes. Maybe I can have you build me a larger scale one for my shop.

John, I never get tired of seeing your creations no matter how simple or complex they maybe. Once again, my thanks for your sharing.

Once in awhile a guy sees an innovative plan brilliantly executed. I especially like the “all-in” approach to the metal roofing. If you’re going to build, build to perfection and apologize to the wife later. My wife wants some bird houses at the property. I added this post to my favorites – hurry and get your patent pending status or guys like me will be infringing :-)

Nice work! Did you buy the plan or did you create the plan yourself?

I always admire your bird mansions, John. We met in Kitchener, and loved what you were showing there.

Thanks everyone for the very nice comments ! I design and build all the houses from my imagination , no plans !
I have built over 450 of them and they are being patented and trademarked now :-) These houses are all original designs .

Great Job John
You are really spoiling those birds.

John I have a question
What tool do you use to cut the metal on the roof, the cut looks so clean.

Thanks Dave ! I cut the steel using a skilsaw and metal cutting blade. You can buy a pack of 5 blades for roughly 12 or 13 dollars at most lumber yards .After I cut the steel I grind off the rough edges using the bench top grinder . The metal cuts pretty slow so you should be able to cut it freehand .
