    Extreme Birdhouses

    Hi everyone
    Here are a few pics of some of my Extreme Birdhouses.

    They are all made from reclaimed barn wood ranging from 120 - 150 years old.
    I have 28 birdhouses so far ,the largest being 9 ft wide.

    Those are terrific, wll done. I won't show them to my wife. She would want one, or several like those. Are they purple martin houses?

    Thanks Frank
    These birdhouses are more for sparrows and swallows.
    I am designing a few purple martin houses now.
    Their design is a lot different.

    Hi John,
    Just spent time admiring your birdhouses, as many folks have before me, I'm sure.
    Your choice of color and style are quite appealing. Were I a bird with out a home, and I could fit into one of those little holes, I'd look for a girl friend and start a family at your house. Continental breakfast come with the room?
    Really nice work, and welcome to the family
