Rustic timber bird houses

We build a large range of rustic bird houses using reclaimed wood and and recycled metal sheeting.

We select old weathered timber with loads of character, sometimes covered in layers of old finishes and often just showing the signs of age. The roofs of our bird houses are produced from old rust corrugated iron, re-rolled to give it a new life.

The timber is cleaned, the edges are recut, and for wider panels, we regroove the boards and use tongue and groove joints. All items are assembled with exterior waterproof glues and galvanised or stainless steel fasteners.

Our rustic timber bird houses are coated with a clear finish that is low in volatile organic compounds. (VOC) They can also be supplied with no exterior coating and allowed to weather naturally over time.

Some key points about our rustic timber products

  • The dimensions of our rustic items can vary slightly from that shown.
  • It depends on the original width of the boards we are using at the time, and how we resaw them.
  • Colours are indicative, each item will have unique surface textures and colours depending on its story.
  • Even the roof will vary, sometimes it will have pronounced ripples from rerolling, adding to the character.
  • If you have a certain colour preference, let us know and we will attempt to match the boards for you.
