30 years old and I finally built my first Bird House. It was a Christmas present for my Grandma, she loves birds and they’re aren’t many gifts you can get for a 83 year old woman that she doesn’t already have. So I built her this bird house.

My wife and daughter put on the flowers (they had to help) and the wife painted the roof. There are 5 coats of white, my first spray paint job that turned out really nice :) The roof is hinged for clean-out and there is a clasp under the roof to keep it closed.

Gave it to her this past weekend and she loved it!
