Build a bird bath and bird house from your old satellite dish

Obsolete satellite discs that are your property* can only be used

Minimum material is required to build a bird bath that doubles as a bird house


Discarded satellite dish
Piece of thin plywood
Length of chain
Some fixtures

Satellite solar heating Satellite solar heater   Position the finished birds house with enclosed bird bath in an area that is not exposed to high winds. Excessive
movement of bird houses make birds nervous and reluctant to shelter inside the bird house or use the bird bath.

To build the bird house with a bird bath an obsolete satellite dish
will be the base of the bird house and also serve as a birds bath.

Solar heater for a bird house
Remove all fittings from the discarded dish. When working on the satellite dish ( bird house base ) prevent damaging the protective surface of the dish.

Satellite dishes are often protected by an excellent weather proof coating that prevents rust if undamaged.

Solar heated bird house Bird house with solar heating Drill a hole into the center of the obsolete dish. This will form the bird house base. The hole
must be positioned accurately to ensure that the bird house base sits horizontal to the ground.
If the measurement does not allow the base to sit level then the bird bath water will not drain
from the bird bath when the bird bath and bird house require their regular spring cleaning.

Fit a stainless steel bolt, nut, rubber washers and chain supports into the hole. The
rubber washers ensure a tight seal that prevents water from leaking out of the bath

Before assembling of the bird house base commences the perimeter of the dish can be used
to mark out the bird house roof shaped template as a substitute for the second satellite dish.
Cut out the desired bird roof shape and sand the rough edges back to a smooth surface.

Drill a hole into the center of the bird house roof and slide the roof onto the support chain.

Position the bird house roof at a suitable height and then apply a clear silicon to hold the bird house roof in place.

If solid supports are preferred then the chain can be re-positioned onto the bird house / / bird bath roof.

Detachable bird house walls create a cool ventilated home and bird bath in the hot weather. Cleaning and maintenance of the bird house is also simplified.

A piece of ply wood molded to the bird house base circumference will make an ideal bird house wall and stop the cold weather from entering the bird house.
Select plywood that is free from preservatives. This protects birds that have a tendency to chew on their bird house

 Mark a spot on the bird house base where the wall is to commence. Measure around the perimeter of the dish up to the position where you require the bird house
wall to finish. Transfer this length on to the material for the bird house wall then mark the height that is suited for your bird onto the of the plywood wall. Cut out the
bird house wall to these measurements and dress the edges of the plywood with medium grade sandpaper. Shape the bird house wall to suit the circumference of
the dish. This can be achieved by using a flexible plywood ( approx. 3 ply ) or molding a heavier plywood with the use of water & pressure and allow to dry.

When the desired shape is obtained dress the bird house wall with a fine sand paper
and select a suitable finish that complements your bird house appearance.

Fasten with counter sunk fittings to create a smooth, safe surface that will not injure the visiting birds.

This type of arrangement for a bird house with a built in bird bath makes cleaning of the bird house very easy. Simply tilt the bird house to allow the
bird seed and bird bath water to drain away from the bird house base. Then rinse the bird bath surface and refresh the bird house seed and bird bath water.

To build and heat a birds house, bird box or roosting box the materials you use will be the deciding factor on the useful life of the small bird house.
The use of any material that has been coated or treated with chemicals that may be toxic to your birds should be avoided. Pets cannot be constantly
supervised and it is not unusual for them to attack their enclosures. Face the opening of the small bird house, small roost box and small bird box
away from any prevailing winds. When using tools to build the small roost box plan or bird house plan ensure that the proper safety equipment and
safety procedures are used at all times. Read and understand all instruction books that are supplied with any tools and always maintain a clean and
safe working area. Never work around children or unrestrained pets or let them in the work area unsupervised. The free small bird house plans and

Bird house plans can be "modified" to suit different building methods. Heaters suitable for the bird house can be found on our site. The heater can be built into the bird house during construction or used free standing.

build your own bird house

To build the bird house the base is the first piece of plywood cut to size. The base becomes the guiding template for all other bird house dimensions. Measurements used for the bird house base will be decided by the number of birds requiring housing.

When the size of the bird house has been determined transfer the measurements to the base of the bird house.
This becomes the guide for all remaining measurements. Alterations can be made during construction.

Bird house plan

The sides and roof of the bird house should be from the same plywood panel as the base if the bird house is to have a varnished finish.
Modifications can be made at almost any point of the free bird house plan.

  • A1/A2 are equal but larger to A5/A6 by approx 15%
  • A3/A4 are equal but larger to A7/A8 by approx 35%
  • A5/A6 are equal measurements for the bird house
  • A7/A8 are equal measurements for the bird house
  • B1 is the minimum height for the bird house + 15%
  • B2 This is the height of B1 plus approximately 15%
  • B3 Draw a joining line between B1 & B2 after B4
  • B4 These measurements are equal to A7/A8

Bird House

Superior insulation for the bird house can be obtained by using heavier plywood panels.
A thick plywood will reduce the heating cost of the bird house.

  • B1/B5 . B2/B6 . B3/B8 . B4/B7 are equal sizes
  • B1/B2/B3/B4 is the the first panel cut and used
    for template for the bird house plan.

  • B5/B6/B7/B8 are transferred from the template.

  • C1/C2= to A5 plus twice the thickness of the plywood
  • C3/C4= measurements to the bird house B1/B5
  • C5/C6= measurements to A5 plus twice the thickness
  • C7/C8= measurements to the bird house B2/B6

Bird House

When selecting the plywood for the build a bird house plan the grade of plywood must be of an exterior grade quality.
The plywood for the bird house must not contain any chemicals that produce fumes when the bird house is heated.
  • A1+A2=The ends of the bird house roof
  • A3+A4=The sides of the bird house roof
  • A5+A6=The ends of the bird house base
  • A7+A8=The sides of the bird house base
  • B1+B2=The ends of the bird house side 1
  • B3+B4=The sides of the bird house side 1
  • B5+B6=The ends of the bird house side 2
  • B7+B8=The sides of the bird house side 2
  • C1+C2=The ends of the bird house back
  • C3+C4=The sides of the bird house back
  • C5+C6=The ends of the bird house front
  • C7+C8=The sides of the bird house front

Building a bird house

Timber approximately two inches square ( 50 mm )
is suitable for building a large bird house.
Small bird house frames are 1 inch (25mm) square.

Timber framing for building a bird house should be sufficient to border the inside of the base sides and four corners. Modifications
can be made when building the bird house. Guides to position the roof & runners that keep the bird house off the ground are required.

Plans for a bird house

When building the bird house a viewing panel can be left out if it is not required. The plans for a bird house has a perspex
window but safety glass can be used as a substitute. Wood glue, galvanized nails and screws are used for joining the plywood and framing.
   The roof for the bird house can be made from clear perspex sheeting or glass.
Perspex helps to insulate the bird house. Perspex panels can have the positioning runners fixed with screws or nails.
An bird house glass roof will require runners that are glued to the surface.

Plans for a Bird House

The plans for an bird house assembly begins with the base of the bird house. To start building the bird house line the outer edges
of the base with frame timber. All the joints and framing of the bird house should be glued and nailed or screwed. Fix the sides
to the base keeping the plywood side flush with the underside of the base. The upright corner pieces are then placed at the side edges.

Back of the bird house is the next panel. Ensure the back plywood sits flush to the outside of the plywood sides and flush to the base.

Bird house

The next step is to fit the front of the bird house with the edges flush to the sides and base underside. Flush edges for joining panels
allows extra edging to be used at a later date. This will provide "superior heat insulation" for the small bird house.

Place the bird house roof in a position that is suitable for the bird house and fit the roof guides to the underside of the bird house roof.
Use spare timber as runners for floors to prevent the bird house loosing heat from ground contact.

When you are happy with the structural strength of the bird house fill any nail or screw holes and coat with a suitable covering.

Bird House

Bird Houses must be of sound construction if insulation is to be effective. Insulating a poorly constructed bird house doesn't
reduce operating cost. Painting the bird house with an undercoat and exterior grade paint will prevent moisture from penetrating. If the bird
house needs insulation against heat then a light colored paint should be applied. The reverse is also true.
