Yes, I bought a winter roosting house last fall, about a dozen can huddle together when it’s cold, in the spring, you take the ladder out and flip the door over, so the hole is on the top, I see a bird already going in. Also Hung up the wren house too.

I see birds checking out our houses, I have lost count of how many we have, around 40-60 hung here and there.
Love it, we have almost no bugs. Between the birds, frogs, toads, dragonflies and everything else that lives here.

Thanks, I took the 4 chunky y feet off a sofa when we threw it out, made just a plywood box, and the barn wood, is from Home Depot, it’s ceder actually, $60 for the whole thing, not bad. It comes pre stained, warped and pre packaged. Lol

You are so clever @Burd and it pays to keep stuff you think you might need for a project later. Love the table!

Reminds me, I need to acid wash the wall, it had to be totally re tucked, and I can’t wait to get the new Siding up. Since red is the accent color, I saw a nice kitchen aid BBQ in red today. Not many come with a side burner anymore I gotta have that

Nice! Succulents can survive without a drain hole if you watch the watering. Mine in the house get watered about every few months. They have been without water for 4 months (it was winter and colder in the house)

I've made things from horse shoes. Mainly wall hooks. I cut one in half, then weld that half to a full one. Then paint them. If there's a barn near you, they usually have plenty of old ones laying around. I'm lucky, my daughter has a horse.

I picked up a few more things for the baker rack, it’s raining, so the red lantern isn’t out. I need more stuff.

That would be funny, I have another bird house I spent way too much time on to fix, it was up in a tree when I moved in.

I added a few things. Still need some more stuff. I actually saw a bird up there looking around a few times. I think it was a wren.

The plants on the baker rack filled out, glad I got the rack. I still need to finish the siding, I have 3 doors that have to be installed first that go,out to the patio The hanging pot to the right, I was in Atlanta, that plant was being trimmed in front of a wine store, I put a pc in my shirt pocket and brought it home, rooted it, and it’s doing good Has purple Flowers I just noticed in the pic, a small birdhouse it tipped over, a chipmunk keeps going up there And moving stuff , I did get the JBL speakers up under the soffit, now I have tunes on the patio Anyone else with a baker rack ?
With the little pond off the other side of the patio, it’s a nice shady place in the late afternoon to evening to rel@xe and drink wine. :)
