Extreme Birdhouse # 44

Hi everyone , here is my latest Extreme Birdhouse .This house is made from 100 year old reclaimed barn wood .It is 5 ft wide , 7 ft tall and has a built in bird bath in the roof . The railings are all made from 1/4" steel.

A few weeks ago i was contacted by a magazine called Birds and Blooms and they are going to do a 2 page article on my birdhouses and myself . The article will be in the Dec / Jan issue .

Thanks again Handyman , I build them mostly for fun . I built this one for a woodworking contest for Gorilla Glue , i,m sure you have seen thier advertisement somewhere .

I do get commissions to build a certain style or to copy someones house but i try to stay away from making it a job . I enjoy building them and i don,t want to do them for a living. I would be happy to sell patterns for them and let everyone else give it a shot .
The best part of building these houses is to help me deal with everday chronic pain .
