Hi everyone !   
This past week i have been busy digging holes and setting post for more of my extreme birdhouses . Since winter is coming fast i thought i better put some houses up before the birdies freeze .
These houses are 5 -9 ft wide and weigh up to 500 lbs
They are all mounted 9 ft in the air .

I want them life-sized and live in them! They all look way better than the house I live in Grin Grin Those are really beautiful houses. Do you construct them after real houses or are they your own ideas?

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
