From the vertical siding to the pitched roof and detailed trim pieces, this eight-sided birdhouse has many of the features you’d expect to find on a real house.
When most people think of woodworking, they imagine someone nailing together a birdhouse in the garage. But, they're not picturing this birdhouse. The octogon shape allows room for four different cubbies inside of it. The shape, combined with the painted finish sets itself apart from all others. Plus, you'll find the woodworking is rewarding.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
