Here's a collection of home designs for birds, bugs, bees and bats, all made from materials found in nature and sized to each creature's particular nesting habits. The book begins with advice on how to attract wildlife along with suggestions for types of materials best suited for building the homes, such as deadwood and driftwood. The 25 projects include an alpine birdhouse, a swallow house, a bat house, an owl house, an open-nester and a flat-top birdhouse with rooftop garden.
They include step-by-step instructions with color photos and measured diagrams, and cover the basic techniques for everything from cutting and joinery to decorating and hanging the finished product. Great projects for budding woodworkers and nature lovers.
