THREE WREN HOUSES
EASY TO BUILD _ ATTRACTVE

Here is the orginal article straight from
Book No. 4512, PRACTICAL DELTA PROJECTS
NEW & NOVEL THINGS TO MAKE, BOOK 12
DELTA MFG. DIVISION

THE three wren houses shown here may be used as the hanging type or placed on a post. The lumber is all 1/2" stock, either pine or cypress will do nicely. The house shown in photos 1 and 4 has one side fastened with screws for easy removal in cleaning. In the other two houses, the bottoms are removable in the same way for cleaning.
Some craftsmen do not put perches on wren houses as the wrens do not need them. In this case they are for looks only.
Wren houses are usually left unfinished, however, they may be painted if you prefer.
The roofs are covered with bright colored roofing paper to keep out the rain.
Fasten a screw eye to the center of the ridge if you intend to hang your wren house in a tree.
