As a former house framer I use a lot of the same construction techniques for strength, to construct my birdhouses. These houses will last a lifetime between the framing, using Titebond adhesive, 18 gauge brads and 28 gauge pin nails for the siding and roof shingles. Then I burn everything Shou Sugi Ban style and finally clear coat everything with ultra clear lacquer.
 
Yakisugi is a traditional Japanese method of wood preservation. Yaki means to heat with fire, and sugi is cypress. It is also referred to in the West as burnt timber cladding and also known as Shou Sugi Ban which uses the same kanji characters but an incorrect pronunciation. The ban character means "plank".
 
All of the birdhouses will have an emblem called the Fleur de lis. The symbol is a lasting emblem of royalty, power, honor, grandeur, faith and unity.
