Another great example of the fine work you do. I gotta commend you for keeping old wood out of the wastestream and putting it to such good use. I hope as you continue to build these you keep posting them up. These birdhouse pics are greatly enjoyed and appreciated.

Incredible John!

Awesome detail, I love the chimney.
I use the same type of folding saw horses.
The scale of that birdhouse compared to them is amazing.
How many guys will it take to set that house up on it's mount?


But hey! what's the deal with the cats?
I thought that was my place there for a minute..
If you ever run out of cats, let me know
I'll mail you 4 or 5 any time.

Lovely work John,
Thanks for sharing!
Tom

Wonderful craftsmanship!

Do you sell these? If so how much does something like that go for?

Hi John,
Great birdhouse, it must weigh a ton!!!!!!!!! From one birdhouse builder to another we know how much work goes into the finished product. As for what to charge we have done some research on the net and Ebay and I'm sure from your pictures it would be in the hundreds!!!!!!!!. We have posted just a few of ours for veiwing pleasure and have sold some. Good Luck,
Looks Great
Birdiejane

Thanks Birdiejane
they actually don,t weigh that much. i can still pick this one up myself.
the cedar is very dry . i do have a few houses around the 500 lbs range.
i use a farm tractor for them.
thanks again
john
