Hi everyone , Here are a few pics of another one of my Extreme Birdhouses
It is made from 150 yr old reclaimed barn wood and has 32 dormers , 13 roofs and over 100 apartments.

It is 9 ft wide and over 8 ft high with a fly through tunnel.
I still have a few things to do like drill the holes, finish the railings and most of all paint the roof.
My only problem is i don,t know what color to paint it and i am open to suggestions.
I will post a finished pic when it is completely done.

Thank you Mackem and Orson
I am having a real hard time trying to find different colors of caulking other then the usual colors.
Any place that sells vinyl windows should be able to get a variety of colors. They'll have caulk to match the windows, shutters and aluminum. I've gotten it from Al-Side before.

That's very neat.

I wonder though, is it a bird condo or a cat feeder?
Thanks PK
I get a few people wondering that too but i would not keep building them if i thought that the cats would have a feeding frenzy with the birdies.

I have had a few of the houses up for 3 years now and i have never had cats go near them or even close to them. It is too hard for a cat to climb up over the base once they are up. :yes:
