This WOODPECKER HOUSE comes fully assembled & ready to use when it arrives.  There are two sets of measurements provided.  One is taken from the widest parts of the house (backboard & roof edges).  The other measurement is of the house body.  This should give you a thorough feel of house size.  However, the bottom line is that this house has proven results of housing the birds it specifies.  It is made of all CEDAR and built to the specifications to accommodate woodpeckers.  The house is assembled with both nails and screws ...... making it very strong and durable.  The entrance hole is the recommended 1  1/4" hole size allowing for easy entrance & exit but restricting some of the other competitor birds.   The interior front door's rough cedar walls helps the baby birds to easily climb out once ready.  Also included is a door latch which will help  keep occupants safe inside.  The floor is recessed upward which will keep the bottom dry by not allowing water to wick up.  The front swivels forward which makes cleaning easy and safe.   The roof is shingled with cedar slats which provide durability as well as a decorative look.   Important mounting and PLACEMENT instructions are included.  House placement is important with this design and will help encourage occupancy.  All information provided.

CEDAR SEAL: for $9 we will seal the entire outside and underside of the house (the interior is not sealed and is kept natural). Cedar is one of the best woods to use for outdoor items. It is a wood that can expand and contract with warm and cold weather. It is a great insulator. After a period of time, cedar will begin to lighten to a silvery gray. However, if you want to keep cedar looking its TAN color longer, then a sealant is recommended. We use a product called CLEAR WOOD FINISH. It is low odor, water soluble, and penetrates deep into the pours of the cedar.......providing a clear coat of protection while preserving the natural tan color of cedar.  It also creates a barrier which helps prevent the wood from soaking up moisture.
