I was looking for a unique birdhouse, So I built this modeled on the boat I was running at the time. It is made of cedar fence boards finished in urethene marine paint. The bird entrance is in the rear of the wheelhouse.

Is the house the whole interior, or just the wheelhouse?

Pretty cool without being a bird house.

Just waiting for some deck hands.

Great job….....................

I think you should charge the birds rent!
Great job.

Do you sell these? My fiancee is a boat captain and saw something similar at a lock. I would love to find one for him.

Have your say...
