Under Construction

Spring is coming. Jeff my husband is in the garage making birdhouses. My Mom went with me to the Lumber yard and we went through the scrap bin and bought enough to make some birdhouses. So we thought. Well we bought enough for one good sized birdhouse. It is in the construction phase and not done yet. This is the back and you can see the shake shingles on the roof. He has fun making them. No two are alike.

Just getting to the front details now. He make the hole and got some of the railings done for the porch. He mentioned he didn't have a chimney on it. That is his signature to his birdhouses. They all have a chimney.

Here is the detail on the porch. I know it will be tricked out more as he says before the painting process starts. He is a perfectionist and he is never happy with what he does. It keeps his mind going and he does well with his hands even though he has Parkinson's' disease. If it makes him happy with a few bucks worth of lumber why not. Chris
