THE STORY
This design was developed as a proto type study using the geometric shape of a hexagon. If Honey bees use this shape in building their bee-hives, then it ought to be valid as a Bird House. It is a pleasing shape to look at and is very stable, structurally, to use a Hexagon for a Bird House.
It has many possibilities in a variety of Bird House designs. One will be illustrated in an upcoming Bird House design, called the "Cinderella Castle".

THE DESIGN
This particular design is suitable for medium size birds and can be mounted in multiple ways. It can be placed on a backboard as shown, or by hanging, or mounted on a post of a trellis as shown in other photos. The proportions of this Birdhouse and its symmetry, is quite pleasing to look at and would look nice in any garden or patio area. The roof assembly is easily removable for cleaning inside, and the drainage is quite adequate when it rains. The copper pins, visible on the roof and lower panel, were used to clamp the roof panels together during construction. I decided to leave them in place after constructing the roof. It provides a foot-hold for birds to use when standing on the roof, instead of using my usual wooden battens. It has been installed as shown in the photos, and birds like to perch on the roof top; and yes, squirrels too.

THE MATERIALS
Like each birdhouse, the HEXAGON Bird House is hand-crafted from salvaged and recycled Western Red Cedar, naturally weathered, 8 to 10 years. All other materials are recycled or salvaged from various locations.
