#SUNBIRD Design (day two)

On the second day of working on the #SUNBIRD project, I looked up and found a variety of designs. The best design is made by April Wilkerson. The video she showed what she made is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_73fPeqq9c

Another person made a video basing many of his ideas on that video and it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7cY2WeYJkc

Here are the design links with the supplies I would need to create the birdhouse: https://www.wilkerdos.com/wp-content/uploads/woocommerce_uploads/2016/05/Bird-House-Plan.pdf

I have decided to not make the post base and simply use the octagon as the base. I also like the idea of these ventilation holes/corners to let the air in and rain out.

Basic joinery makes assembly easy
