Hi everyone , Here is my newest Extreme Birdhouse . This house is 7 ft tall x 5 ft wide .
It is made from 120 year old reclaimed barn wood and has 38 rooms and a roof top pool .
The customer that bought it just put it up a few days ago so there are lots of pictures .







Here are the pictures the new owner sent along with a note to how he installed it .









John:
We got the birdhouse home without any problems.
 
The next day, Monday; I started looking for a forklift to hire.  Well, there are not many of those four wheel drive lift trucks around that people know of, but as I was driving along the industrial area, saw one sitting at a welding place.  Went in and asked the girl if they hire it and the driver out, she put me on the phone with the owner and we agreed on Thursday morning.  I had to pay for a tow company flat bed truck to bring it to my house and Paul the owner of the lift came and he picked the birdhouse up in front of my house, drove it down the street to the park entrance and into the park to where my trees are.  Had it on top of the trees perfect in about 10 minutes.  It took me about 4 hours to have the top of tree trunks perfectly level with a chain saw though.  Had to cut in where the braces where as well.  After all the engineering of the tree and the measurements of the birdhouse, it fit like a glove.  Instead of fence posts as braces for the birdhouse, I used aircraft wire and adjusters.  Screwed in eyehooks into the tree and drilled holes for eyehooks through the base of the birdhouse.  Worked great and from a short distance you only see the trunks of the tree and the birdhouse on top of it.   We took lots of pictures and I will send you some real soon.  Looks really great on the trunks and the people in the park are totally amased at what they see.  Thanks for a great job and I will send you pictures.

Hi everyone , Here is my latest Extreme Birdhouse . This cape cod is 3 ft square and made from scrap cedar .
It took me 10 hours to build from ripping the logs to painting the roof . I used Thompsons water seal to seal it .
