With a few basic tools, some paint and a little effort, do-it-yourselfers can add a fresh touch-up to the yard or garden while giving the neighborhood birds a fashionable new address. Both the country birdhouse (left) and Victorian birdhouse (right) feature charming details such as stenciled flowers and vines, doors that open (good for seasonal cleaning), shutters, chimneys, perches and bright color schemes. A great family project, they're especially fun, easy and inexpensive to make. Materials include plywood, dowels, hinges, nails and glue, as well as stencils and paint. The required cuts are mostly straight cuts, and all curved cuts are traced from full-size patterns. Assembly calls only for gluing and nailing the pieces together. Once the houses are assembled, builders can follow the suggested painting schemes or create their own. The Victorian birdhouse is about 18 inches tall by 12 inches wide by 10 inches deep. The country birdhouse is about 10 inches tall by 9 inches wide by 12 inches deep. About U-Bild plans: U-Bild plans are ideal for woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers of all skill levels. Unique trace, saw and assemble designs feature simple-to-follow patterns (like sewing patterns) that produce professional-looking results.
