Hey y’all! I’m back with another easy tutorial. This is another #DIYCourage project sponsored by Duluth Trading Co. Do you love birds? Want to add some birdhouses to your property without attaching them to trees? Today I’m going to share a super simply DIY project that will make the birds happy and make you smile. Learn how to install a birdhouse on a post within an hour.
My sons and I love watching the birds come to our kitchen window feeder. We want to make our yard a welcome place for all birds. We wanted to add more birdhouses to the yard by adding a two-story birdhouse. We already have two birdhouses (one that is a little wacky and made with knives), but I’ve always admired the two story birdhouse condos that house eight nests. When I saw one at the Southern Ideal Home Show (with a discounted price tag) I snatched it up.

- Two Story Birdhouse
- 4×4 Post Anchor
- 4×4 Vinyl Post
- Combo Square
- 1.5″ exterior screws
- Circular Saw (or handsaw)
- Pry bar
- Hearing protection
- Safety glasses
- Women’s Duluth Work Gloves
Select a location to install your birdhouse. Try to find a spot that will get a decent amount of shade during the day (to keep the birdies from getting too hot.)
Twist the post anchor into the ground. When it becomes difficult to turn, insert the pry bar for added leverage.
Set your 4×4 post into the anchor.
