Ethan watched a TV show where they had a bird house and were watching all of the birds come into the garden and he decided he wanted one. We looked at buying one, but thought it would be nice to build one. We gathered all of the wood that we had laying about and set about building a bird house. I did a little sketch on a bit of wood and then went for it. Ethan helped me all day and we ended up build something that is solid and looks cool. I finished it off with a 4 inch stand and 2 roof tiles we had left over, nothing but the best for the birds.
