Norwegian Chapel for the Birds
"My husband, Norman, constructed this birdhouse for our son and his wife," writes Bridget Walton of Newark, California. It's a scaled-down version of the Chapel in the Hills, the traditional Norwegian wooden church in South Dakota where they were married in 2003. "Norman used cedar fence boards to make the church, including the more than 6,000 shingles that cover the multiple roofs. It took several months and was by the far his most challenging birdhouse project so far."
