A: I usually find them on fences, it's a great way to recycle the old pickets and the old looking pickets make great looking Bird Houses and a rough surface for the birds to cling to. A: Make the hole the right size for the birds that you would like to nest in the Bird House. A: Experts say that a Bird House should not have a perch on it because predators can use the perch to get into the Bird House, and several other reasons I will not go into.
Q: I forgot to put the clothes hanger wire in when I built and attached the roof to the Bird House, how do I get it in there now?
Q: How do I line up the pillars on the Bird Gazebo with the roof, to know where to drill the holes for the screws?
Q: I noticed on a picture of your Bird Gazebo that the pillars seemed to have measurements marked on them, are they for measuring the birds?
A: Actually that was quite by accident, but if you see a bird 12 centimeters high last seen flying south please call the authorities. A: Use a soft wood 2 x 4 and trim it carefully to make the plug top for the feeder that attaches to the roof that the pin will go through. A: The hanger wire runs through the center of the block at the top, then goes off at an angle to one side.
A: Use one of those plastic things that microwave macoroni and cheese comes in, it should fit just right. A: Yes, because the Purple Martin House is made out of plywood you should most deffinately shingle the roof. A: I would say 20 feet at minimum, but it you can get it 40 or 60 feet up in the air that is even better. So when my friend Gina from Lady Goats wrote me saying, Help, Ana, I'm building in the rocks and dirt!
She wanted to use cedar, and I thought, what cheaper solution than cedar fence pickets for siding? Gina is going to add a few fun things to the inside - like a mitersaw cabinet and some door shelves, so stay tuned as we turn this shed into a workshop!

It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. I would advise to put some kind of liner underneath the shingles, especially if youve got powertools stored in the shed. I had some looong conversations with the people in the roofing departments in both Lowe's and Home Depot (made sure to talk to a lot of people, because it's hard to get accurate advice from one person that may or may not have done a roof!), and they all mentioned that the type of shingles I used, with the OSB, in my climate wouldn't require the use of another underlayment.
Anna, don't have chickens as of now but l have 5 cats, my daughter renting front half of our duplex has 6 cats. Last fall bought 2 - 10 x 10 x 6 ft high dog kennel's for my 18 yr old sheperd to run free in no chain.

It's a simple enough task to build and fit a standard type garden gate as long as the posts are parallel and the ground is level and even, but what if this is not the case? Well, there are a few ways to counter this problem, but they might not be suitable in all cases. We were recently asked to make and fit a gate into an opening in an existing lumber 1800mm (6ft) high fence.
Below (Fig.1) is a drawing of how the bottom hinge on the gate can be offset to enable the gate to open over raised ground. About half the degree off plumb, of the degree off level that the incline of the ground is along the fence line.
Of course you can always work it out by trial and error, have a couple of people hold the gate in open position and measure the offset. NOTE: Sometimes the ground might also be sloping up at right angles to the fence line at a steeper angle than the slope along the fence line.

You could fit the gate to open away from the slope, but depending on the make-up and position of the fence and gate, this might not always be possible.
That is, align the hinges so that the bottom hinge is not in a vertical line (directly under) the top hinge. The opening was over 2100mm (7ft) wide and in this case double gates would be more practical that one wider gate. Suppose the upward slope of the ground along the fence line is 6 degrees (approximately a rise of 1 in 10), then the bottom hinge should be offset vertically from the top hinge by 3 degrees.

If you don't have one, nail one corner of an end board and squeeze the boards together while someone else nails all of 'em. But that's not much good if you are trying to keep little puppies or other critters locked in. The gates had to open inwards and had to be low enough to the ground to keep a little puppy in. This can be done by adding a block of wood to the gate and fence thus packing the hinge out. The most important page is probably the last page #136 which has a detailed drawing of the fencing with the gate details. Ed also mentions that when doing a Privacy Fence Installation make sure you check your property line, check your local building department to see if this fencing requires building permits, also find out information about fence height and setback. However there are no written instructions, no fence material list and you will have to ad lib a bit.
When the gate is open, the bottom of the gate angles up, thus enabling the gate to open over raised ground. The ground sloped up inwards from the gate entrance at right angles to the fence line, as well as sloping along the fence line. Each panel of this privacy screen is slightly over 12 feet long and a little over 7 feet high. I guess you could use a old piece of garden hose, but I think it will wear out rather quickly with the wire cutting into it, besides it is too big and it is ugly.
