Hi everyone
These are my Extreme Birdhouses and lawn ornaments all made from 120 - 150 yr old reclaimed barn wood.
They range from 10" up to 9 ft wide.
The birds love them .:loco:

Thanks for looking

Hi Debbie and thank you.
Acton is about 25 minutes east of Guelph.
There used to be a large tannery there for years and a big leather outlet called The Old Hide House.
They used to have a commercial saying It,s worth the drive to Acton.
They were lying . lol

Boy do i feel silly now...I have been to Acton years ago...remember the tannery...we stopped one year while we were in the area. We used to love to go to St Jacobs. My father grew up in guelph area and Brampton......his family owned one of the first Canadian Tire stores in Brampton. I have not been back to the area in awhile...just to Toronto. If I do head that way will have to stop in and see your bird kids would love them!
