    Does anyone know where I could find birdhouse plans to build a Victorian birdhouse.  The birdhouse plans I am wanting is  either called Victorian, English, or estate birdhouse, it is usually 6 to 8 sided and has cedar roofing.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to B&B  Roselaff . I don’t use a pattern either but I’m sure someone here will be able to help you.Have you tried to make your own pattern ?

     

    . Nedrag nice bird houses and feeder ,your very talented and details really make the houses . I have to ask how did you do the curved roofs on the first pictures ? I can make a square house but those curves throw me lol. Did you use a jig saw  and what size wood did you use ? Do you nail or glue ?

    Damselfly look at the white roof now cut that pattern out of pine now cut another and another and keep cutting until you get the depth you want for you house now glue or nail them together and then sand them smooth.
