Who knew that cinder blocks could be such fashionable modular bird houses? Sure, they’re a bit heavy – strong chains would be a must – but this design by Mathew Zurlinden makes great use of a common waste material and can easily stack into apartment buildings for birds.

    I hope there is felt on the bottom of the cinder blocks. You don't want to scratch the beautiful hardwood floor. :)

    Looks great. Is that a malm bed from Ikea? Did you use 6 blocks or more for the middle?

  • Jennifer Pedrick

    Yes yes more details on your 'raised Malm' please!!! How many blocks & how's it held up so far??
