I have completed the second in my latest series of bird houses. I call it a Swiss Chalet (and not the chicken restaurant)

I can appreciate why roofs covered in cedar shakes cost so much. A lot of work. 350 shingles made each hand tapered and applied. I put a copper ridge on it as that is where the rain gets in under the shingles.

I hope the birds appreciate the work on the roof although they are likely going to use it as a toilet.
