Bird house project

Building a Reputation

Bird house project





Here’s my bird house project, I like this design because it’s easy , doesn’t require a lot of skills or equipment and is fairly cheap to build.

one of the problems with birdhouses are you must be careful of fumes from plywood ( which is what I used) and other Timbers. The drainage pipe fixes this problem in my opinion. I dressed it up a little with hard wood shingles.

Re: Bird house project

Hi @Jim57 


Thanks for sharing photos of your beautiful bird house project. It looks wonderful, have you had any feathered tenants checking it out? Please make sure to post a photo once they take up residence. Given enough time the materials you've used will eventually air out their fumes.


Again, thank you for sharing such a wonderful bird house project.
