The Menlo Park Birdhouse is a historic re-creation of Thomas Edison's world famous Menlo Park laboratory. Today, you’ll find a replica of the actual building at the Henry Ford Greenfield Village Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. This functional birdhouse has a 2-story front porch, removable back wall for easy cleaning and a 1 1/4" opening to accommodate wrens, finches, chickadees, nuthatches and titmice. The house is constructed of exterior grade ply-board, pine shingles for the roof and poly-resin details. The finish is a non-toxic, outdoor paint. Item Dimensions: 11” H x 9” W x 10” D.
Note: Climate and the elements will weather the house and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the house's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint), you should select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not turn the white paint yellow. You should expect that once left outside, the product will weather and require refinishing.
