كيف نبني بيت الحمام - سلوك 2023

Pigeons need more living space than just a cage. Whether you keep pigeons for a hobby or as a trade, you need to provide them with a great sanctuary. The simple pigeon house has solid construction, is off the ground and is easy to clean. You can build a pigeon house with building materials found at your local hardware store.


Step 1

Make the side panels. Measure and cut two pieces of plywood 40 inches on the bottom, 80 inches on one side, and 60 inches on the other side. For the top, mark and cut from the top left to the top right. The angled corner provides a slope for drainage.

Step 2

Build legs and support floors. Cut a 12-inch cut off the end of four 2-by-4 boards. This creates four 84-inch pieces and four 12-inch pieces. Align one 12-inch piece parallel to the flat side of one 84-inch piece, even with the bottom. Repeat for three additional legs. Cut 12 inches apart are the ground supports.

Step 3

Attach the side panels to the legs. Place two legs on the floor with floor supports. Place one side plate over the legs, aligning the ends to the edge of the legs. Place the bottom edge of the side panel against the floor support. Mark and cut the excess panel 2 by 4 on the top slanted edge. Repeat on the other side. Put the side panels in position and attach them to the screwed legs.

Step 4

Build top support. On the outside of one side panel, measure and cut two 4-by-4 panels to fit the space between the leg panels on top. Nail the board to the side panel. Repeat for the opposite side panel.

Step 5

Make the word. Cut two of the 2 boards 4 by 44 inches long. Cut eight 37-inch pieces from the 2-by-4 boards. Lay two of the 44-inch boards on edge on the top of the floor supports between the two side boards and nail them in place. Lay the thirty-eight 37-inch boards on the flat edge, spaced 1 1/2 inches apart, across the width of the floor. Nail the boards in place.

Step 6

Make the back panel. Measure and cut a sheet of plywood 80 inches by 48 inches. Nail the back panel to the back side of the leg panels. Align the top of the back plate with the top of the leg boards.

Step 7

Make the front panel. Measure and cut a sheet of plywood 60 inches by 48 inches.

Step 8

Cut out the door panel. Locate the center of the front panel. Measure and cut the door panel 33 inches high by 24 inches wide.

Step 9

Attach the door panel to the front panel hole with hinges 5 inches from the top left edge and 5 inches from the bottom left edge.

Step 10

Attach the door latch to the right side of the door panel 15 inches from the top of the panel. Attach the guard to the front side, aligned with the latch.

Step 11

Attach the front panel. Screw the front panel to the front side of the leg panels. Align the top of the front panel with the top of the leg panels.

Step 12

roof construction. Cut a sheet of plywood 60 inches by 48 inches. Lay the deck over the pigeon house and secure it with nails. Attach shingles with roofing nails.
