  • Extreme Birdhouses (My Collection )

    Hi everyone here are a few more of my Extreme Birdhouses . This first house is for Purple Martins . The holes are much different then my regular houses .





    This second house is made from 100 year old barn wood .





    Here is another house i built a few weeks ago and it is now up .It is 6 ft wide 75" high and is mounted 9 ft in the air .











    I am having a 2 day outdoor art show this weekend so i gathered all of the houses i have left and here they are .This is one third of my total collection .

      You must be using a Bobcat w/forks to move those birdhouses around. Fantastic as always, never get tired of looking at your work....

          So heres a good question. How many hrs do you put into each birdhouse start to finish.

          Always enjoy seeing the birdhouses.

            Thanks again Josh , the smaller houses take 2 days each to build and the large houses take about 2 weeks to build . I usually spend 2 days to pull all the old nails and rip all the boards into logs . If i am building the smaller houses i make enough logs to build 5 or 6 houses at a time .

                    I always love seeing your work, John. I've actually received e-mails that were distributed to the masses containing pictures of your craftsmanship.

                    Keep them coming...

                    Best,

                              Thanks again everyone for all the great comments . All the birdhouses are made from old hemlock barn boards . The wood is very dry so the boards are fairly light . The insides are 3/16 plywood and that also keeps the weight down .
                              The smaller houses weigh about 40 - 50 lbs and the large houses weigh about 250 - 400 lbs
                              The base usually weighs about the same as the house itself.
