Bluebird Houses

Recommended Posts

Here's a bluebird house that I constructed a few years ago out of cedar. I had it in the shop today for some spring tune-up work. I decided to replace the roof as the old roof was rotten. When I originally built this particular house, I didn't have a wide enough plank of cedar so I used a different type of wood for the roof. Big mistake! The non-cedar board did not hold up to the elements over the years. I like this build as you can pivot open the side of the house to access the inside of the house easily. Here it is.

Cool..I have made several myself--nice to watch the birds using them. :)

My dad makes his out of old barn boards. He sure does have issues keeping the Sparrows out of them in the spring. So his houses have more then a few .22 holes in them. Just added ventilation you know.

 

On a side note. Dad had a pair of Bluebirds sitting on top of a box this morning.
