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 one such recent variation in photo #5. 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:
Personally I would display this birdhouse in my house rather than my backyard, but birdlovers should know that it is, as are all my birdhouses, a functional outdoor birdhouse that can stand up to many years of weather (all of the wood and metal has already survived decades outside) and can accommodate most common backyard small cavity-nesting birds, such as finches, chickadees, wrens, nuthatches, warblers, and titmice, while the metal 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, and notches on the inside front wall to aid fledglings as they exit the nest. The body is made from old yellow pine from a barn built in 1914 in Olivet, KS, and the trim, artwork, and roof from vintage metal roofing material from two other deconstructed Kansas barns. The iron ring on top has been forged by Scott Hawley at Furnace Brook Works (http://www.etsy.com/shop/Furnacebrook). I have used silicon to insure that the two-section roof is waterproof. All reclaimed materials in my birdhouses are carefully selected for their structural integrity.
This birdhouse can be mounted on a flat surface (e.g., post or pole) or hung. Printed advice and instructions for both methods are included. See my other birdhouses at http://roundhouseworks.etsy.com. Join my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/roundhouseworks.
