The Birdie Abode is the perfect birdhouse for bluebirds and other small song birds. The house is made from solid cypress - some of our designs are stained to allow the beautiful grain and coloring to show through - others are painted in fun designs and sealed to ensure long life. Cypress wood is a naturally rot and decay-resistant wood.
- Dimensions: 11-1/2" high; base 5" x 5-3/4"; entry hole 1-1/4"
- Wood thickness is 3/4"
- Made and painted in the USA!
- One side panel flips out for easy cleaning. Dowel supplied for securing side panel!
This house was built by Heartwood and hand-painted here at Garden Artisans.
Cypress is naturally regenerating. When a tree is harvested, the stump automatically regenerates a new sapling; saplings also sprout from the root system of a healthy adult tree. While this helps protect cypress from over cutting, we take green a step further and purchase only cypress that has been harvested in accordance wit FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) guidelines. More importantly, we only use pieces of lumber 4 to 6 ft long, which would otherwise be chipped and burned. These pieces are all kiln-dried.
