I have always loved these built-in bird houses whenever I've seen them. I didn't even know what they were called until I started researching them this morning. Gotta love Google. My daughter says no, it takes away from the front of the house. (In like a nose piercing way, I wanted to ask. Thank goodness her's didn't last very long and didn't leave a scar, just saying.) Thoughts anyone? It's not to late because, of course, the roof isn't attached yet. I've been busy!
