Extreme Birdhouse # 115 - 125

Hi everyone ! Here is my newest batch of Extreme Birdhouses . They are roughly 24 square and made from white cedar . All the insides are removable for easy cleaning .
It took me 3 days to build them all .

They look great John. Fantastic work again. Are these a 6 bird family dwelling? I think that is what I am seeing. Also looks like you have a fair bit of snow in your end of the province.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Sorry John, I just looked again at the photos and noticed that the chiminey is on opposite sides of the buildings which makes your photos front and back, making these houses 6 family dwellings. If I would have looked a little closer, I would have seen this.

Thanks guys ! Yes they are 6 plexes . It takes about 45 minutes to make the shell of each one . I have gotten pretty fast at them now .
This is a short video of my yard back in November Before we got 3 ft of snow My video skills are not too good but it does give a idea of the size of these bird hotels

Those are very cool John. I really like the metal roofs. What kind of birds frequent these houses?
