My wife and I just found out that we get to adopt a baby boy (read more about that story here). The mother that selected us to be his parents is awesome (read more about her story here) and is 6.5 months pregnant. As a result of being so far along in the pregnancy, we have quickly gone into "nesting" mode.. So, I thought this would be a fun topic for our next design project.

Project Nest Box

A nest box is the generic term for a man-made dwelling for nesting animals... the most common type is a birdhouse, which will be our focus for this project. In doing some research I have found some amazing birdhouses... most of which are available for sale if you purchasing rather than making. If you do want to build your own birdhouse I will be sharing some awesome DIY birdhouse plans in the upcoming weeks. Enjoy! Do you have a favorite?

    I was searching for a concrete bird house and accidentally found your blog.
    I really love the one shaped as a house, made in concrete and wood (11th from the top) and was wondering if you could tell me the name and who designed it…
    Thank you!

    I wish I remember where I found that image. I probably just did a google search and found it. I am trying to be better about siting the origin of photos.
