PRODUCTION SCHEDULE

PLEASE NOTE: I will be on sabbatical starting February 2 through May 4 in order to replenish my stock for a three-day art festival (Brookside Art Annual 2015 in Kansas City (http://www.brooksidekc.org/bba/art-annual) taking place the first weekend in May. I have left my Etsy Shop open (i.e., not in "vacation mode") so that my made-to-order birdhouses remain visible in search results and orders may be submitted for a production schedule that will resume on May 5. On that day I will begin work on any orders submitted between now and then in the order in which they were submitted. Any birdhouses remaining from the art fair will be listed in the shop in the Birdhouses Available Now section. I will be posting photos of the birdhouses that will be on sale at the art fair (some of which will be one-of-a-kind pieces) on my Facebook page (http://on.fb.me/1HK7hfC) over the next couple of months as I make them. Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop. Please come back.

This is a MADE -TO-ORDER item. CONTACT ME BEFORE ORDERING THIS BIRDHOUSE. The version I will make for you may will be subject to the inherent variations of working with reclaimed materials, e.g., color and texture of wood and metal. Note variations in the roof color and design in the 5th photo above. Contact me and I will let you know what material differences you may expect and the timetable for delivering your birdhouse. I may need as long as two weeks to deliver, but may be able to do it sooner depending on my work load. Following is the original description:

Like all of my birdhouses, this one may complement your home's interior decor as an art object, particularly in this case if you like a combination of arts and crafts and vintage materials. It is also a functional, outdoor 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, more ventilation holes beneath the roof, and notches on the inside front wall to aid fledglings as they exit the nest. It is made from old barnwood from a barns built in Kansas and Missouri in the early 20th century. As the photos indicate, some of the wood shows original red barn paint. The roof is made of weathered metal roofing and tin battens from another farm building in Lawrence, KS. All materials are carefully selected for their structural integrity. All of the roofs for my birdhouses are waterproof.

This birdhouse may be mounted on a flat surface (post or pole) or hung, depending on the design you prefer. Printed advice and instructions for mounting, hanging and locating are included.
