This birdhouse is very simple and will be used by an array of songbirds. This project would be a good one to do with a child. If you use cedar, be sure to predrill all holes so the cedar doesn’t split on you.
Cut the 1X6X5’ board as follows:
Draw a line down the center of the front. Go down three inches and draw a 1 1/2” circle centered on the center line.
Cut out the hole in the front piece.
Attach the front to the sides with the tall side to the front. Use screws so you can unscrew the front and clean out the nest after nesting season is over.
Attach the back to the sides.
Attach the top to the box, centering it on the frame.
Attach the bottom to the box. Recess it about 1/4” in.
