    What do you folks think? The white bucket will be where the feeder and water will go in between the buckets is the nest box. Where the hammer is is the door and to the left of the door will be the roost.just above the next box I will have a window with hardware cloth and a piece of plexiglass that I will be able to slide off in the summer months. So you guys that been down this road. Is this look good? Thanks.

    1/2 plywood I added a couple of pictures just so you know there is support for the roof. That's assuming that's why you asked that question.

    Nice structure!

    Would suggest a globed and caged light fixture.

    Head room seems a bit low, roosts are best a foot higher than nests, and they need head room to fly up, and you want ventilation above that...it stacks up quick!

    Where will your cleaning access be?
