Picture of Recycled Owl Houses
While cutting some trees, I found some that were hollow.  I set them back thinking I might use them.  I later rebuilt a fence, and found a post that was hollow.  Inside the post, I found left over bird nests.  This gave me the idea.  Use these as owl houses.  I will show the  way I built the small owl house.  The large hollow logs are going to take a little more effort, but I think they will work.  I'm not sure if owls will build, or some other critter may move in.  Nevertheless, some creature should make use of the home.

To build a recycled owl house, you have to find logs or posts that are hollow.  The following is a list of items I used:
Hollow post
2 x 8 board ( I had some laying around)
1 x 4 board ( this should be about a foot longer than the cut post for mounting)
8-12, 3" wood screws
3' piece of all thread
4 nuts and washers to fit the all thread
