Making a green roof birdhouse

Guest post written by Sally Thurman

I'm really trying to make all kinds of little small steps around our home to be greener. I recycle and do all types of the general little things, but I really would like to get creative and take it a step further. So I decided to take on some kind of outdoor green project that would be a perfect way to kick off the start of spring.

I thought that making a birdhouse might be a great way to kick off the season. So I looked online to see if there was a green one and when I was looking I found some tips on credit card management, which are something I could really use. We've had some financial issues with credit cards and could really use some help with them so I was really excited to see that.

I found the plans for a green roof living birdhouse that I knew I wanted to create myself. So I bookmarked them and spent an afternoon working on making one. It's such a cool idea that I couldn't stand the thought of passing it up!
