Home Bazaar Portland Head Lighthouse Bird HouseTurn your backyard into a beacon for your feathered friends using the Home Bazaar Portland Head Lighthouse Bird House. Placing this detailed reproduction of the Portland Head Lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, in your garden showcases your love of maritime history and style with ease. The vivid red roof on the keeper's house mimics the actual structure, and captures attention in moments. The home's white body adds a crisp look to the unit, while blue hints around the faux doors, on the dormers, and on each window frame offer a lively finish. A white lighthouse behind the keeper's home completes the striking adornment, and its black top and vertical line of windows ensures architectural precision. A 1.25" diameter entry hole rests on each side of the keeper's abode, creating two separate homes for avian families. A third, 1.25" entry rests on the lighthouse, providing your feathered friends even more living space. Ladders beneath each of the openings help nestlings exit the home when ready, and the unpainted interior on each unit remains safe for the birds. All three compartments also have drainage on their bases, so nests remain dry and clean. A ventilation gap along the front of the shelter ensures each compartment stays cool for nestlings, and small holes at the top of the lighthouse provide this same function. The keeper's house roost has a removable back panel, for nest checks and seasonal cleanouts, and the lighthouse may be unscrewed from the wooden base for annual cleaning. The white, red, black, and blue colors add visual interest to your backyard with ease, and the all wood body furthers the classic look. The significant, 13.75" long and 11" wide platform allows the replica to rest on a level surface, indoors or outside, or it can attach to a wooden post with a mounting plate (not included). Welcome avian families to a classic landmark in your backyard using this Portland Head Lighthouse Bird House. Some assembly required.
Note: Climate and the elements will weather this house and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the home's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint) of this item, you should select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not turn the white paint yellow. You should expect that once left outside, the home will weather and require refinishing.
