The range of bird house designs is extensive, with new ones being added all the time. Although they may be considered ornamental, they are also functional – birds like living in ’em. Most of the houses (especially the larger ones) have access doors to allow cleaning and maintenance, only the smallest ones are ‘fully contained’.
A variety of materials are used in their construction depending on the particular design (more about the timber we use here). Typically there are two broad categories of material:
Pallets and Recycled Timber:
Part of our philosophy is to re-use and recycle wherever we can; we scrounge pallets and old wood from all over and anything that is destined for the dump or the fire is perfect for us.
