An Extreme Makeover Birdhouse Addition

6:00 AM



Good Morning Birdie Family!!!


This awesome birdhouse was at my Mother's house and really needed some help....
I loved the mossy entrance ...



and the great growth on the roof...


But it had a problem....

All that mossy goodness had rotted Mom's birdhouse...

It was wet and falling apart... It crumbled as I moved it.


This birdhouse really needed an Extreme Makeover...
In an attempt to save it, I took it apart...

I used wood from this old crate and traced all 
the pieces of the old birdhouse...


I used the crate slats for the front and back...

Using a hole attachment for the drill, I cut out 2 holes...




The last slat I screwed on held the license plate roof which is removable in case the inside needs to be cleaned out...


I painted the whole birdhouse white...


And added a license plate for the roof...

Alaska? 
These birds are going to think they took a wrong turn!


Some old scrap signage for the side...


I think it's still missing something...


Move that bus!!!!


That's better... a little junk!


Welcome home birdies... welcome home!
