Bird House Plans

Many birds have specific requirements for their home. They can be very choosy tenants, so build a home that is exactly what they need and adds a bit of eye appeal to your yard.

Choose bird house plans for a particular species that lives in your region, or a standard style to lure a number of varieties to your property. There are simple box-shaped houses like a bluebird nesting box to condo-style models to attract flocking birds such purple martins.

These bird house plans use simple, exterior grade woods to ensure durability. Choose exterior stains and paints to protect them and add a colorful feature to your yard. There are freestanding models, as well as wall or tree mounted units. Other styles are mounted to sturdy posts, set in concrete. With all the styles available, you will probably want to build several.
