Our products are organized within four lines or series.

Replications of famous buildings re-created as functional birdhouses and birdfeeders make these garden accents whimsical heirlooms.
Our pedestals are constructed of exterior grade ply-board, kiln-dried hardwood and exterior grade, non-toxic paint.
Pedestals are to be placed on a flat, dry surface such as stone or cement. They should not be placed directly on grass or dirt. We may suggest a base of pressure treated wood be put beneath the underside of the pedestal footing or base and then secure the bottom of the pedestals to the platform.
We have not used any chemicals or sealants that can be harmful to wildlife. Should you wish to preserve the products’ finish, you should select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use and UV rated that will not discolor the paint.
With time, all of our products will need to be refinished when left outdoors. The shingles (cedar) will patina to a silvery color and the piece will become weathered and distressed, but continue to maintain its functionality.
The product is made in China.
