Building birdhouse gives me an excuse to build three things that I have loved to do since I was a kid. Tear stuff up, put it back together and dig around in your trash. All my birdhouses are built from salvaged lumber and found objects either purchased at an antique store, flea market, yard sale or picked up off the street. I built my first house out of lumber from a hay barn I tore down at my grandpa’s house and junk out of his workshop. I used up that pile of lumber and goldmine of junk long ago. Now I am always on the look out for a house or barn being torn down or falling down where I can stop and pull off a few sticks of lumber or buy the whole thing and take what I need. Our family vacations are now focused around finding good flea market.
