The birdhouses are hand made from pine, reclaimed where possible, in a rustic manner, having shingle roofs. The dovecotes and made from quality new pine wood, finished with smooth silk paint and painted wooden roofs. All our birdhouses are partitioned and available in three hole sizes, small, medium and large for doves and larger birds. The holes have easy access for cleaning, simply put your hand in! Pigeons will not nest in our birdhouses.
