Building a traditional Basque style bird house – La Fabrique DIY

Shrinking this home in southwestern France is for the birds: From cutting the wood pieces, to constructing and painting it, a traditional Baserri style house in the Basque region of France is recreated from scratch as a back yard birdhouse. The project is by Paris-based La Fabrique DIY, led by Claire Protin and Lucas Berbesson, who are transforming their habitual screen time into time learning how to make things with their hands.

Next: Amish Barn Raising: Building a barn in one day, An Animated History of Housing Through the Centuries, and Building a Hexagon-Shaped Treehouse, a time lapse.

Plus, more back yard birds: 6pm Feeding the Kookaburra, Hummingbird hatchlings in their nest with mother Rosie, and how do cliff swallows build their mud pellet nests?
