Church Bird House

I needed a gift for Mother's Day and didn't have a lot of money. What I did have was time and a cool plan for a birdhouse. My Mom is a churchgoer and has a problem in her backyard with mosquitos. This looked like the perfect gift. When I took it on I figured maybe 10 hours so it could be done in a weekend. Boy was I wrong. The project was a lot more detailed than I had originally thought. I did get the basic house done pretty quickly. The most difficult part was getting the right angle on the steeple. The finishing of the doors, windows, shutters, and posts for the birds took almost as long to do. The painting and forming of the copper roof took another day or so. But in the end, it was all worth it to see her eyes light up. Her friends love it too. Many people have asked if I could make them one too. I have decided maybe that would be a good winter project.
