Making bird houses

Help! I want to make a couple of bird houses. I want to make some that squirrels can't get in to them. We have a lot of squirrels and I'm tired of feeding them. Every bird feeder that we buy from the store is useless. Anyone have any plans or tips to build one so they can't get in.

We actually use tin to keep the squirrels out. We cut a round piece and place it under the feeders. The squirrels cannot get up around it. They don't bother the feeders that have the tin.

Bird houses sound like a fun project. Keeping squirrels out is a tough job! We put slinky toys on the poles here. The squirrels have a hard time climbing up the pole to get to the feeder.
