As simple and lovely as an old fashioned English cottage, Griffith Creek Designs English Cottage Birdhouse is both a fine piece of craftsmanship and a natural refuge for a variety of small birds. Crafted with an attention to detail and finished with a warm touch of color that still allows the natural beauty of the antique wood to shine through. Every house is fashioned with timbers hand-salvaged from old barns, varying in age from 140 to 100 years, which have been slated for demolition.The cottage birdhouse is 14 tall, weighs 8 lbs. and has a 1.25-inch diameter entryway. It's sealed with a marine varnish that's waterproof yet safe for your avian guests. The piece features drainage and ventilation holes and a roof that's easy to remove for cleaning. With a laundry pin perch placed low on the box to discourage predators. This house has been designed to attract chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, Prothonotary warblers, wrens, woodpeckers and more.
