    Default My luxurious bird house

    Hi all,
    I wanted to show you my little bird house, completely handmade by my father... In fact it is a double villa : it has 2 holes, so it's for 2 bird families
    He cut out the lead roof and painted everything himself...
    Bye!

    Wow your dad is crafty, there are so many cute little details ...
    Did he make you a fantastic doll house when you were a little girl?

    That is a house that any self respecting bird would love to live in.

    Your dad is an extremely talented man, and you are a very lucky girl. The amount of work and detail that went into this is just amazing.

    That took some skill! Very cool. What a talented craftsman your dad is. Nicely done.

    Laurent,
    He made some small things (bed for my doll,...) when I was little, but not so much! He was working hard at that time and he didn't have much time besides his work.
    Now he is retired he is busy all the time, making funny things for my kids. He is a fantastic man!
