    Extreme Birdhouse # 29

    Hi everyone
    Here are a few pictures of my latest bird hotel
    This one is made from 70 year old barn wood and stands 6 ft tall.

    It has over 60 apartments , 10 decks and 6 doormers.
    I filled 15 garbage bags with sawdust and shavings alone.

    Outstanding. Do the birds salute before going in?

    Wow that's huge!
    Very nice job, john.


    I can't help but think of Lincoln Logs after seeing that.

    Hi John, Your work is so special, it looks like fun and the results are just marvelous. You have a niche and a talent.
    Congratulations on a job well done.
    What kind of birds do you expect will check into the Hotel? Purple Martins?
    Thanks for showing me your work.

    Thanks again everyone .

    This house is more for sparrows and swallows but the next house is going to be for purple martins.
    I do have 3 martins here.
    Next month i have a tour bus of 30 seniors coming here to see my yard and shop.
    They want to see me in action.
    I do really enjoy building them .

    John,
    It is obvious you have a great time doing these, there is lot of devotion to your projects.
    I really like the Martins as they are great mosquito hunters, and arial acrobats. The Blue Angel have nothing but more speed over the Martins. Hey John, IHOP has determined I am a senior, can I get a bus to come see your work? How far is Ontario from Texas anyways?

    Thanks Matt and Robert
    I sure do enjoy building them , they are just like doing puzzles.

    My next birdhouse is going to be a copy of someone house but it will be for Purple Martins so the design might be a little different.
    I have to build 3 freebies in a row now.
