This charming rustic house with a 1 ½" entry and 5" x 5" interior space is designed for swallows and bluebirds. Salvaged chandelier trim around the entry compliments the rough cedar exterior and also acts as a deterrent to squirrels, which sometimes try to gain entry by gnawing on the wood around the hole. Roof material may be cedar, or recycled asphalt shingles over exterior plywood.
