Hi everyone, I’m starting my own blog. This is one of my winter projects that I’m working on. I love having birds around in my gardens and so I have a few birhouses around. Last month I was at a local local fleamarket and an old home made dollhouse caught my attention. As soon as I saw it I thought birdhouse. To my delight the seller was practically giving it away. I’ve been working on it and I have it just about finished. I closed up the back and ther door and windows. Whoever made this house made it in the rough which I like as it makes it look old. I did a little painting and tried to keep it looking as primitive as I can. As you will see, my opening for the birds to enter is very primitive. I want to add a rusted sheet metal roof as the small cedar shingles
will never hold up outside and I also need to put the porch roof back on. I want it to look like it’s been there outside for years when people see it. A couple years outside should do the trick.
I see where I can add two photos of the birdhouse that I have already posted in the member pictures. Can I also add photos that I have in my computer files by using a photo hosting site like Photobucket and posting a link to the photo ?
The first photo is the house as found and the second is what it looks like now. Mike C
