My wife is an avid bird watcher and wanted of her birdhouses repaired before spring nesting started. I took one look at the house she wanted fixed and decided I would surprise her with a new one. We like the look and style of older country churches and when I found the plans for this one I knew I had to build it. Since I mounted on the pole in our back yard my wife has been showing it to everyone who comes to visit and now I have a big "backlog" of orders to build for her friends. I have also started to build "custom" orders for people who want a birdhouse modeled after their own church. I have them send me pictures of several views of their church with a list of the overall length and width to develop the scale to build the birdhouse. Once I draw the plans it usually takes 4 to 5 hours to build the house and another hour or two( depending on how much detail is involved) to paint and poly the exterior. This whim I had to surprise my wife has turned into a small business and a whole lot of fun.
