Installation and care instructions

Cedar is a very weather resistant wood that retains it's quality and character with age, weathering to soft silver gray if left untreated. To retain the natural earth tones of the cedar, simply coat your birdhouse annually with water sealant.  If desired, the birdhouse can also be stained with the color of your choice.
