555 wren houses

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Ever wanted to know what 555 wren house kits look like?

The last line of our job description says "Duties as described". It will only take 8,880 nails to put them together. It took a board 1"X6"X4' for each one. They will be put together by kids in 13 different state park and then taken to Joplin to put up where the tornado went last year.

Midmo, you better check again. I only see 553! :) ..... Great cause. Love the wrens in my yard. And I still remember building a birdbox years ago in Grade School. :)

I have the feeling Ron made the wren houses following the Missouri Dept of Conservation plans.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Have 3 wren houses in my yard--two usually get nested. One of the first sure signs that Spring is here is to hear the song of the wren. Love 'em!!

Thanks for doing "duties as described" to help restore the wren population in Joplin and make a bunch of kids feel useful.

For all interested, the Missouri Department of Conservation has many plans for wildlife. Check it out: http://mdc.mo.gov/discover-nature/how/woodworking

Brought back a memory from several years back. Wanting to get a little closer to my step son I prefit a few bird houses together drilling holes where each nail should go so things would work out well for small hands. Day comes to build and he and a friend join in saying they would help me build my houses but " It'll cost you $2.oo each" :roll: :lol:

Nice job, your also building many happy memories. :wink:
