Nantucket Colonial Bird House
Bring an elegant, seaside retreat to any setting with this Nantucket Colonial Bird House. This highly detailed and colorful shelter adds a delightfully architectural look to your bird garden at once. The rectangular frame and wealth of window shapes replicates the traditional, sprawling Colonial homes of the designer's Nantucket residence. The white on the fence around the perimeter of the item, around each faux window, and on the generous widow's walk atop the roof perfectly contrasts the soft blue color of the home, while the bright red door completes the piece. Two dormers and a chimney shape also adorn the pitched roof, and its cedar shingles create a truly remarkable home. A 1.25" diameter entry hole rests on two sides of the home, creating two separate compartments for birds to roost. The deep design of the shelter keeps nestlings protected from predators, and screening beneath the entry holes allows birds to easily exit when ready. The generous back panel removes for cleaning and nest checks, and a gap at the top of this panel keeps the home nicely ventilated. Two drainage holes on the significant base ensure any captured water exits the nest, and its green color mimics grass for a fun hint. Attach a mounting plate (not included) to this platform to post mount the item in moments. The wooden body is perfect for your feathered friends, while the vividly painted exterior captures attention. Offer your favorite backyard birds a striking retreat with this Nantucket Colonial Bird House.
Note: Climate and the elements will weather this home and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the item's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint) of this house, you should cover it with several layers of 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 item will weather and require refinishing.
