Whoa! Yeah, that’s extreme all right! Definitely not an ordinary birdhouse. Looks great, and I am sure your tenants will love it… :)

Beautiful John, looks like a church that the birds can get married in!!!

Love this style, what do you use for roofing?
What is the tallest / biggest extreme birdhouse that you have done?

Thanks again for sharing all of your creations with us….......

I think it looks like a church as well. This one gives me a special feeling so it is my favorite to date.

What a great project. I make birdhouses as well out of red and yellow cedar but have not made one quite so large. Looks great!
