This is a MADE -TO-ORDER item. CONTACT ME BEFORE ORDERING THIS BIRDHOUSE. The version I will make for you will be subject to the inherent variations of working with reclaimed materials, e.g., color and texture of wood and metal. See my shop message for the current general production schedule. Contact me and I will let you know what material differences you may expect and a more precise schedule for delivering your birdhouse. Following is the original description:

Like all of my birdhouses, this one might serve as art for your home interior, especially if you like the Arts and Crafts style, but it is also a functional and ornithologically correct birdhouse and can accommodate most common backyard small cavity-nesting birds, such as finches, chickadees, wrens, nuthatches, warblers, and titmice, while the copper portal protector discourages larger birds and predators from enlarging the entrance. It has a rear clean-out hatch, copper-lined ventilation holes on three sides and a drain hole in the floor, as well as notches on the inside front wall to aid fledglings as they exit the nest. It is made from old barnwood (pine) from a barn built in Olivet, KS in 1914. As the photos indicate, the wood still exhibits hints of red barn paint. The metal trim and roof are made of weathered metal roofing (burnished with steel wool and etched in copper sulfate to produce a copperish sheen) from another farm building in Lawrence, KS. The horizontal wood insets are willow branches from a garden fence. The finial on top is from a vintage art nouveau lamp. All materials are carefully selected for their structural integrity.

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