The biggest abirdabode ever is complete!

Success at Grassroots as the big, big abirdabode is finished.

Two days hard work by everyone and the human sized nest box is complete and looking fine!

No pressure for abirdabode this week as on arrival at Grassroots we noticed that item three on the weeks work schedule was finish Birdhouse! Everyone rose to the challenge and worked extremely hard to ensure we reached our goal, and to stay warm in the sub zero temperatures!

Marnie and Loz cut extra roof planks whilst Neil and Kelly trimmed the eaves to fit, Nathan, Kelly, Andy and Jacqui completed the mosaic and timber round designs for the nest box sides. The additional last minute task of making a set of twelve sparrow nest boxes was completed in just under two hours by the speedy team of Darian, Ben and Mark.

With just ten minutes to go before lunch on Friday we raced to assemble the big abirdabode. After a swift panel saw adjustment to the peaks of the side walls everything fitted together beautifully and the Big abirdabode was complete and looking amazing. Everyone was thrilled and extremely proud of what their skill and hard work had achieved.

We’re now looking forward to installing the Big abirdabode in Gallery Oldham and giving everyone a chance to admire it.

Thank you to everyone at Grassroots for all the hard work and enthusiasm, it’s been a brilliant few weeks and a real pleasure to work with you all. The cakes are on us at the abirdabode show launch on March 14th!
