Learn To Build a Kid Friendly Birdhouse


If you've ever seen an eastern bluebird up close, you'll understand the attraction of building birdhouses for them. These delicate songbirds have striking blue feathers, unlike any other you'll see in Nature‚Äďand they need our help. Bluebird populations have declined to just 17 per cent of the levels seen 50 years ago. Effective nesting boxes could turn this situation around, but to make a real difference, we'll need a lot of bluebird houses. An inexpensive and easy-to-build design can help this plight. Get your kids involved and you can teach them a little about woodworking and the vanishing eastern bluebird at the same time. I built several with the help of my own children.

Although you can certainly make a batch of bluebird houses using smooth lumber, I recommend rough-cut 1x6 and 1x8 cedar. The main reason is you can find it at a good price from sawmills in most parts of Canada. It's also rot-resistant, safe for birds and perfectly suits an outdoor location. The only trouble with rough-cut wood is you'll find a natural variation in board thickness. So-called 1" rough lumber might be anything from 7/8" to 1 1/8" thick, depending on how the sawmill was set up. But, as you'll see, my design takes care of these discrepancies. You won't even have to do a whole lot of cutting to get parts to fit. These truly are easy-going birdhouses.
