the American Craftsman Bungalow Birdhouse!
This birdhouse features two entrances, upper ventilation through the chimney and windows as well as sloped drains in the base to allow fluid to run out. There are multiple interior platforms built in to the corners so birds can snuggle in places where wind is unable to blow across them. Along with the veranda, there are also three perches for birds to hang out on.
There are two hefty center-aligned screw slots for tree mounting and for extra stability, there are two decorative support trusses so keep it from going anywhere!
This classy casa is designed to print without the use of support material. Even the body prints as a single piece! The base, which includes the porch for the veranda, slides in from the front and comes to a rest with the columns mating with the beam of the roof.
I strongly recommend printing in PLA on a printer with a build platform at least 220 mm long and 150 mm wide. Also there are bridges on this model! My original Replicator can handle them just fine so most printers should. They are around and inch long at their longest.
This can of course be proportionately scaled, however it was designed to best accommodate small birds like finches, blue-jays, chickadees and the like.
Thanks and take care!

i am having trouble printing this
everytime my printer gets to the top of the upper floor window, i start having feed problems and I the printer starts drawing air from that point on. Now i would normally assume I am having feed problems and proceed to clean my extruder up and give it another go. but it fails at the exact same spot every time ( happened 5 times now )
wondering what people are using to print this. I am just using the replicator 2 with the makerware software

Then the base.
Following that, print two eave perches and the chimney. They should press in place firmly, but you can use compatible glue to affix them.
If you need extra support, print the two trusses and slide them in from the back.
