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 art deco, 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 wood taken from a barn in Holton, KS built early in the 20th century. The owner was unable to identify the type of wood, but it is thick in the older style (7/8") and heavy and exhibits rough cut marks from a saw mill, as well as faded red barn paint. The edges of the wing designs are made of vintage walnut from a barn in Lawrence, KS. Many decades of weathering has produced some lovely effects on this wood. The metal roof and accents were created from tin roofing taken from a deconstructed old chicken coop in Lawrence, KS.

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.
