Half-timbered houses find their history in Germany. The first half-timbered houses were farmhouses, in which a supporting skeleton made of wooden beams was filled with wickerwork made of willow, oak or hazel and filled with clay or mortar. In addition to the availability of materials and low construction costs, there was another advantage for the farmers. The peasant class generally had no rights of inheritance; if the farmer had to move, the house could be demolished within a few days and rebuilt elsewhere.
This half timbered house was specially designed for the blue tit. It offers a good place to nest not only for the blue tit, but also for the crested tit, marsh tit, willow tit and coal tit.
In bad weather, the birds also use the aviary as a shelter. Under the roof there are ventilation openings. The bottom can be raised to clean the nest box in the fall. There is a keyhole eyelet on the back to hang the box securely.
