Thank you everyone for the very nice comments . I use to build real homes for years until a injury changed all that . Then i had to find something to do with my time so these houses keep me busy and i still get to do what i love doing most .I wasn,t a bird lover either but they sure love nesting in them so i can,t let them down now .
The wood is very old and has lots of splits and knots in them so ripping them into 1 " strips cuts out all the boo boos . Grin

That's a birdhouse, I thought it was a doll house at first. That is simply amazing! It's beautiful! THIS ROCKS!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

WOW!  These are really amazing.  I can't tell you how much my dad would love one of those, if only he had a bigger garden.

Those are extremely awesome! The group pic looks like a little bird village! They are beautiful - it's obvious that you love making them.  How long does the actual construction take? I'm sure it varies with the size and style, but just an estimate? That must be so gratifying. I'm jealous!
