I am just getting back into the grove of things again .Here are two 5 ft birdhouses I just did recently .They both are made from white cedar and they come with rooftop pools . This is also the very first time I have stain one of them.

They look great John. Are those code compliant guardrails? What are the pools lined with?

The railings are 5/16″ solid steel so the birds won,t fall through that anytime soon 🙂 The pool liner is done with rolled roofing .

Thanks John ! The guy I built it for brought me the stain so I told him I would put it on before the do the steel roof . Now that I see how they look with stain I will be doing more like that . The main thing is using stain that won,t affect the birds .July 26, 2013 at 9:15 am #34846AnonymousInactive
Hi John, Haven’t seen ya lately, Welcome back. I gotta say these are my new favorites, Super cool on the pool idea and that little ‘walkout deck’ for that one hole is cute as can be. If I was a bird that would be my room 🙂 I also noticed in that last pic it looks like you’re building something bigger, What is that? As always, Thanks for the picsJuly 26, 2013 at 10:12 am #34851
Thanks again Boyd and thanks for the welcome back . I am also working on a large birdhouse in my spare time . It will be 13 ft wide x 10 or 12 ft tall and weigh about 1,000 lbs .It will have about 300 rooms and be in 2 pieces The roof will be separate .
It will take a few years to complete .

OMG!! How cool. What are your plans for that? Will it be for sale or are you going to mount it on top of a pole in your own yard.July 26, 2013 at 11:45 am #34861
I am going to use it for advertising in parades for a few years .I want to have it rotate on a flatbed trailer as it moves down the road .Then I will probably donate it to a large park eventually . 🙂July 26, 2013 at 12:15 pm #34863AnonymousInactive
