    Like to welcome Mrs. B as well

    You must have an amazing amount of knowledge. You have to know how to build, how materials work with each other, and about the birds and what works for each , incredible, to say the least

    Super cool and Thanks for the roof info, Although I can’t find any of it around here yet but I’ll keep looking. I saw someone mentioned how big ya go earlier and it reminded me of that great big one you were working on last year, Wasn’t it something like 10′ long or so?

    Thank you guys for all the very nice comments ! I have one on the go now that will be over 12 ft wide .

    I can’t even imagine what you would come up with if you built dog houses. 🙂
    12′ wide bird house – wow! Did you model it after an existing building? Can’t wait to see the picture.

    Holy Crap, That would be big enough for me to make my own doghouse/mancave. Are you still using 1″ logs for something that big?

    Will it require ‘interior support’ of the walls?

    Yes some of the structure will be done with 2×4 and 2x2s .The roof will be separate because of its size .The base alone will weigh about 400 lbs.

    That kinda reminds me of one of my sheds in the backyard as far as how it’s built, This shed is an 8×12′ barn style roof that was made with scrap 2×4″. Laid down flat like logs LOL, The corners are all cut clean though. It’s about 8′ tall I’d guess at the peak, Pretty dang goofy really LOL. I didn’t build it LOL, it was built by the guy I bought the house from and he was in construction, I’m sure he got material from cut-offs on the job site, They’re all different lengths ranging from a couple foot on up. I will say one thing, It’s been there for over 20 years so I guess it’s ok. I did reshingle it about 16 years ago as the existing ones were all curled up, So that tells me it’s been there a long time…But it’s nothing to brag about LOL

    Man a 12′ bird house is huge! How many birds will it house? You said by the size of the holes determines what birds live there. Will it be a one type of bird house or a mixed dwelling?

    have one on the go now that will be over 12 ft wide .

    That thing will be incredible. Will it be a record size as in Guinness World Record? 1000 lbs, the owner will need a crane just to install it.

    I did a little detective work today, I think I may have found a candidate for the largest. And it’s only about half done, This is a still pic from one of many video’s that kept coming up from the same guy in a Google search and so did BTP a few times with this thread. Congrats to that guy, I hope he doesn’t mind me posting this pic

    That looks kind of like one in my yard 🙂 There is no world record for the worlds largest birdhouse yet .There is a record for largest feeder . The guy who holds that record contacted me a few years ago and said I should go for the birdhouse record .
