HERE IF YOU JUST WANT PLANS TO BUILD A GREAT LOOKING BIRDHOUSES AND BIRDFEEDERS!
Most birdhouse kits are designed to attract specific types of birds
– from the American Robin to the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker.
Birdhouse styles range from Classic Colonial and towering gazebos to double-decker and multi-family units. Virtually all are made of wood
– rot-resistant cedar or alder, for example
– and some require staining
or painting. Most models have removable floors, sides and/or roofs for easy
Birdfeeder kits are also easy to make! They attract a variety of fine-feathered friends to your yard, depending on the type of birdseed you use. Feeder kits range from classic hinged-roof designs to multi-hoppers and fly-through units.
Some of the kit manufacturers also offer a variety of non-kit wildlife feeders
and houses. For example, you can purchase squirrel feeders, suet cages and
ornate gazebo birdhouses in pre-assembled form. Also, if you're interested in
creating more complex structures, you may want to review the “plans” listed at
some of the participating KitGuy websites.
Kompleteness of Kits/Tools/Finishing: Most models include pre-cut and pre-drilled parts with all the necessary hardware for assembly, requiring just basic tools like a hammer and screwdriver. If you choose a kit that requires finishing with
stain or paint,
you'll need to supply those materials. Avoid using creosote as a preservative.
