Leaving Texas with a wonder gift

An important new gift for our new houstOur very good friend Al stayed up very late on Thursday night before we left and built us one of his beautiful, custom birdhouse. It has TON of features:

  • The rock face on the front of the house matches the chimney on the back of the house
  • Hand sawn cedar roof
  • Aluminum roof underlayment (for better protection from the precipitation
  • Trap door at the bottom for ease of cleaning
  • Contoured roof
  • Hang-ability

Lorena and I have an excellent pair of binoculars to watch birds (big fans of the cardinals in North Carolina) and we both come from generations of bird-watching families. We always put up a bird house shortly after we move to a new place along with a humming bird feeder or two, so this is the perfect gift for us. That Al made it himself is icing on the cake. I will have a place of prominence on our back porch or in a hanger down in the yard–Lorena and I are negotiating that between each other right now.

Thank you Al and Jill (for letting him stay up late to finish this!).
