Home Bazaar Garden Cottage Bird HouseInvite two avian families to live in classic style in your yard with the Home Bazaar Garden Cottage Bird House. The amazing attention to detail on this piece, combined with its exciting materials, will surely add elegance and grandeur to your garden. This home, part of The Queen’s Hamlet series, reproduces one of the structures built for Marie Antoinette’s idyllic retreat outside Paris. A wealth of windows adorns three sides of this significant home, each with a wooden frame and plastic pane. This not only brings a realistic look to the unit; it also enables you to observe the birds. The dark brown panes and white frames of the windows and faux door contrast the tan background, which evokes stucco. A stone-covered chimney and cedar shingled roof complete the house, and its asymmetrical design adds bold shape to any setting. A 1.25” diameter entrance hole sits at the top of the taller section of the home, creating a deep roost for your favorite songbird family. A second, 1.25” diameter entry sits on the side of the home, for another bird family to take up residence in the shorter portion of the shelter. The sides of each interior compartment remain unpainted, staying safe for nestlings, and a ladder beneath each entrance hole assists them in reaching it. Two separate cleanout panels on the back of the abode allow you to clean each compartment as needed, while drainage holes on the bottom platform keep each nest dry. Ventilation slots, camouflaged by the roof overhang, aid in regulating the temperature of each compartment. Use the included 5” by 5” mounting plate and hardware to place this home on a 4 x 4 post (not included), or rest it indoors on a flat surface for a lovely home decoration. The wooden construction, neutral tones, and realistic accents combine for a splendid adornment in any yard. Start a rustic bird village in your outdoor sanctuary using this Garden Cottage Bird House.
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 matte finish polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not alter the colors of the paints. You should expect that once left outside, the home will weather and require refinishing.
