I'd second this, except it's not a bird lodge. It looks like a bird paradise to me!

Turning good wood into designer firewood on a daily basis.....

I never plan my days. "Premeditated" is a word Lawyers love to toss around in courtrooms.

Those are so cool. I always enjoy looking at the pictures of the birdhouses when you post them. Funny, I had noticed the pictures of the shop in the background, also, with the bird-themed signs/window displays.

Any pictures of the shop that you car to share with us?

Nice House! Is it designed for a specific type of bird? Size of entry, stuff like that?

I design most of them for sparrows and wrens .They will move in as fast as you can put them up and they stay in them all year round . This way they don,t have to be cleaned as much .Maybe once every 10 years .The holes are 1 3/8" .I also design them for martins but the holes are bigger and the house has to be 3 or 4 ft higher .They also need to be cleaned out every year .
