John: another masterpiece. I wonder what the birds that live in your houses say to the other birds at parties?

keep posting,

I love this so much, it looks so nice. I like the look of three houses in one.

Good morning Debbie
I have a pretty big yard.
There are 5 large birdhouses in the front yard and 4 very large birdhouses still waiting to be put up.
I just cut some logs yesterday to build a new one.

some Sunday, you’ll see a black truck slowly driving past your property—we’ll be out on a Sunday drive looking for big birdhouses. I’m sure they will be easy to spot! ;)
Unless these pictures are optical illusions, these creations are HUGE

If your ever in this area stop in and i will give you a tour .
The big houses are along side the road so you can’t miss them.

I just had 4 newspaper reporters here in the last 3 weeks doing articles on my birdhouses so i am getting lots of drive by,s lately.
I also have an article coming out in Canadian Home Workshop Magazine in May.

Congrats on all the media coverage!!

If we head up that way some time I’ll let you know!
Rick wants to build birdhouses – not sure if he had something in mind like yours but they definitely are an inspiration.
