Last summer I attempted to build a birdhouse out of barn wood. It wasn't ideal, since the wood was dry & split on me a few times. I did however, cobble together a rustic home for my feathered friends. The tin roof was cut, and required a special power tool. That's were the hubby came in handy!
It turned out pretty cute. Now I just home it appeals to the birdies!
