Default Native Bee Houses

I've been looking into native bee houses and habitat and came across this site.

I love the idea of using salvaged pedestals and corbels!

Can't imagine it would be too difficult to replicate with a good drill. . .

Thoughts?

Wow, those are some pretty fancy bee houses! (fancy price too!)

Here's another web site with some pretty creative mason bee house ideas.

As nice as those look I think there's a lot of wasted space.

I'd just buy 200 tubes from Knox and set them up in coffee cans.
