Getting the Grass Roots nest box standing

Back to Grass Roots after the Xmas break and straight into getting the Big abirdabode standing. Whilst abirdabode had been away work had proceeded apace and the reclaimed timber sides required very little work to complete- merely making sure all the screws were in the right place and not sticking out (well spotted Kelly!) and a quick trim to cut the sides flush; some great sychronised sawing from Mason and Paddy!

The other sides of the box were also nearly complete, the wood rounds looking really beautiful with Nathan taking charge of the fiddly task of filling all the gaps with tiny rounds cut from twigs (rather him then me!) and the mosaic side being managed by Kenny and his nimble gluing fingers.

Darren also return to help and working with Neil, Mark and new member Joseph we soon had the roof sides completed, reinforced and the great news was; they fitted first time.

Just before lunch on friday we got the Grass Roots big abirdabode standing and it looks great! It’s big enough for three people to fit inside as long as they’re not as tall as Mark!
