Most of us love to see our feathered friends hanging out in our garden and singing in the trees and shrubs.
Nothing is a better attraction for birds than to provide them with bird houses where they can build a nest and raise their young. The sight of the young birds being fed,growing up quickly then taking to the air is something really enjoyable.
It is very easy to build simple birdhouses from scraps of wood which the birds will find very attractive as a dwelling place for their nest.You can also build a great bird bath from our free vintage plans. A great vintage project you will love building.
