I made this simple log cabin style bird house for an old lady friend from England who is a master gardener near Omaha, Nebraska. I made it similar to a squirrel feeder I made this last weekend, yes more spare time and lots of scrap wood left to use. It measures about 16 inches by 16 inches and is very stout, as I tend to build the simplest things around the house to last 2 life times.

Thanks for looking.

I also love to build bird houses and I must say some of yours I REALLY like! When I get a shop built and start making them again, I’m gonna hafta “borrow” some of your ideas. :-)

I am just a novice wood worker compared to all the experts here in this group. I built the squirrel feeder and bird house just looking at some of the items on the LJ’s posts. I do not have any plans, I just build as I go, with a few beers in beween and watching tv in my shop. I am just working on getting used to my tools and working on the wood working skills. Hopefully get more complex and bigger projects in the next year or so.

I really like this idea. I think I am going to “borrow” it from you and build one from all the scrap I have laying around.

Great, I can probably build bird houses for the next few years with all the small pieces of scrap wood in my shop. I am just building 2 robin platforms I saw some else built earlier and then two more other style bird houses. After that I think I need to finish a few other projects I already started during Christmas. Have fun.

It looks great and sturdy. Like the log cabin style. I’m sure it will last a long time outdoors. Great job!
