Olde-Tyme Barn Wood School House Bird House with clean-out door and rusty school bell. The base of the house measures approximately 8.5" x 8.5" and peaks at 17" - add another 5" or so for the functional school bell (it tops out at approximately 22.5"). This adorable birdhouse was a special request by our "Primfriend" customer. We thought it was a terrific idea and passed the idea on to our Old Order Amish Barnwood Crafter and this is what he came up with. We just think it reflects the days of years past when the students from different grades were all taught in the one classroom - similar to how the Swartzentruber Old Order Amish children still attend school today. Just as their feathered ancestors built their nests and made their family a home in the old time one-room schoolhouse, our feathery friends will make themselves feel right at home as they have a place to settle and start their families. This birdhouse is crafted using reclaimed barn wood in excess of 100 years old and reclaimed tin from the roofs of the reclaimed barns.
