I need a new, larger house with a roof top pool. You would be my first choice for an architect! I love these bird mansions.

Thank you ! I have to give the credit to the birds they are the ones who asked for the pools Cheesy
A lot of my houses are made from old reclaimed barn wood . The wood is 100 - 150 years old .

Thank you Bea ! I have built about 200 birdhouses using old barn wood . I still use it sometimes when I get tired of using cedar . These houses below are all made from barn wood .

With so many areas losing natural places for birds to thrive, your houses provide protection and a place to nest!  plus, they are extremely attractive and posh!  Just beautiful...and, I also love seeing the videos...looks like you provide a wonderful habitat for birds...water, trees, places to hide, bushes, flowers, seeds...excellent!  They must look to you as some sort of bird deity! You are a true Birdman!

Thank you ! I have around 400- 500 birds in my yard every day .They are very happy by the looks of it . I always give them fresh water and food every day . I also planted several fruit trees in my yard for them .
  I have built over 800 houses so far .
The young kids in town call me birdman Cheesy

Here is a video I did this past summer that explains a lot of what I do .

I carry a bag that says FREE KNITTING LESSONS on my daily transit commute, & give a little hands-on tutorial to anyone who asks. They get a starter kit with needles, enough cotton yarn to make a plain dishcloth and a set of instructions. Swaps/donations for materials welcome!
