Home Bazaar Groundskeepers Cottage Bird House


Place a truly inspiring bird shelter in your backyard using this Home Bazaar Groundskeepers Cottage Bird House. This home evokes countryside cottages immersed in their surrounding greenery and offers a wealth of detail for both you and your feathered friends. An overhang of the gabled roof protects the home's imitation windows and doors, as well as its 1.25" diameter entrance sitting just above an imitation balcony perch. Each window is adorned with a flower box featuring pink and white fabric flowers, while the faux door sits within a white arbor, matching the rest of the trim throughout, and is covered with plastic, imitation vine. A white, to-scale bird house with a painted black entrance acts as an ironic, decorative ornament mounted just below the roof's scalloped fascia. The structure's pastel yellow painted walls convey board and batten siding matching the shingled roof above, and are accented by the flat, white painted surface of the home's trim. A 2.5" x 2.75" access panel on the rear of the house makes for easy cleaning of the interior, and a gap underneath the roof overhang provides adequate ventilation. A single hole in the center of the home's base allows for drainage of any accumulated moisture, making for a comfortable roost, while a white-colored rope is affixed to the center of the roof for straightforward hanging. Create a cozy and modest home for your backyard birds with this Groundskeepers 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 wish to preserve the finish (paint) on this home, 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 outdoors, the product will weather and require refinishing.
