Windsor Hexagonal Dovecote

THE ULTIMATE POLCOTE FOR A KIT OF DOVES

THE ULTIMATE POLCOTE FOR A KIT OF DOVES

A hexagonal dovecote having three levels with 18 nestboxes and perches for housing of up to nine pairs of doves: crafted with care and precision and handmade in Bridport with quality materials and FSC approved timber (ethical and sustainable).

50% of the Nest box partitions may be removed to afford larger and twin nestboxes for breeding.

Barrel; engineered from 19 x 125mm tongued and grooved redwood cladding, and fashioned with scalloped base, glued and screwed to 12.5 mm WPB plywood frame mounted around (for added stability and build quality) a 100 x 100mm pressure treated mounting post 3.6m long.

Roof construction; similarly tongued and grooved clad, with pine scotia edging strips, using 25 x 38mm treated timber frame on 12.5mm WPB plywood base, and topped with pressure treated timber acorn finial and hardwood finial base.

Feeding tray; a hexagonal tray of 12.5mm WPB plywood with drainage holes and ogeed pine panel moulding trim, centrally mounted on the post.

All paint finished both internally and externally with a four coats of silk white “Zinsser” preparation to afford maximum weathering without staining or fading.

Designed to be installed post vertical 600 to 750mm in the ground (depending on ground conditions) and prepared to be slid into a suitably founded 110mm dia. polyethylene underground drainage pipe (not supplied).

Made to order (minimum of three weeks lead time please) and finished as standard in white weatherproof paint, there are a choice of additional finish and colours.

We construct engineered bird boxes of all descriptions to order and are happy to consult with our customers to achieve the desired result.
