My suggestion… Do some research online for requirements of the particular kind of bird you are wanting to house. Use the info given with material you have and just create something. I don’t do many bird houses but what I really love about them is their simplicity and room for “That special touch”....

I am not a big fan of using plans personally so I wouldn’t be useful for that part… Just remember to be safe, have fun, and never be afraid to “Try” something beyond your normal comfort zone…

Stop by your local Big Blue or Big Orange store and get the book I have. “BIRDHOUSES, AND FEEDERS”; by Goodheart-Willcox… great book with plans and dimensions.

Just make a box with a hole for the birdseed, decorate it, fill it, hang it, watch the birds. You know, just wing it.

Here’s you a photo of a simple one, easy to build.

Remember, hanging birdfeeders, birdhouses are easier to mow under than ones on poles / post.
