We have been selling the same birdhouse model for over 15 years and will try to answer some frequent questions: Often used in programs like Boys & Girl Scouts, PTA events, camps, and other large programs looking for a low cost model kit. These kits are inexpensive kits but not cheap quality. Every year we sell 10’s of thousands of these without complaint, but keep in mind this is an inexpensive model kit which is not the same quality as the more expensive type. If you have seen birdhouses made at school or camp, chances are great it was this brand (these are sold worldwide). These can be hung outside if you preserve the paint with sealant and would be designed for small birds like sparrows. It is made from pine wood which is approximately 1/4” thick. They are designed to be assembled with the included nails, but you can also glue some or all sections. We recommend that you always assemble one in advance to determine the best way to present the process to the group; that way you can add or admit steps depending on your audience. The assemble age is a recommendation and can be adjusted depending on group or if there is an adult present to assist with nailing. We provide you with some additional assemble instruction and nails that you will not find anywhere else. Our goal is not to just sell these kits but to make sure you have a successful program.
