Since moving to our new house, I have spent weekends outside trying to reclaim our historic domicile from weeds, limbs, overgrown bushes and the like. Not only has my family benefited from my willingness to confront the various forms of poisonous ivy and death-infused spiders, but some eastern bluebirds benefited too.
One afternoon, my son Bergen (who is crazy about birds) and I put our heads together to create a much desired birdhouse.
2 pieces of awesome-looking reclaimed barn wood
Scrap piece of an old crusty leather glove
Super annoying/cheap drill
Old rusty nails from barns that are falling down
Random brass handle
Strapping forearm muscles
Depending upon tools, 2 hours or so
Shortly after making the bird house, Berg crafted a small sign that reads “Home Tweet Home”.
It hangs underneath the entrance.
Have recently set out a bird feeder or a bird house?
