To make this birdhouse resemble a flower, I chose a pattern of alternating red and grey vintage barnwood wedges radiating out from the portal and serving as the face of the house. I have stained the ends of each piece with either gray or red (cherokee) gel stain, one of the rare times I have used any kind of stain or paint on a birdhouse. The red on the front of the wedges is the original barn paint from an early 20th-century barn in Holton, KS from which all the wood for this birdhouse was taken. The roof is made of beautifully weathered tin roofing taken from a retired chicken coop in Lawrence, KS. Aside from the whimsy, this is a functional and ornithologically correct birdhouse for most common backyard small cavity-nesting birds, such as finches, chickadees, wrens, nuthatches, warblers, and titmice. Like all my birdhouses this one has a metal portal protector, copper-lined ventilation holes on three sides and in the floor, an internal etched ladder for fledglings, a clean-out hatch, and a waterproof roof.

Advice and instructions for locating and hanging this birdhouse are included. See my other birdhouses at http://roundhouseworks.etsy.com. Visit my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/roundhouseworks.
