A Penthouse for the Birds

Janet Hall September 05, 2012

As migration season nears, consider sprucing up your accommodations for visiting birds. We think the Attic Birdhouse would get top billing on Airbnb for birds. They may never leave.

A modern skyscraper for the birds, the Attic Birdhouse offers sky high views and a safe haven (cats, don't bother). Spotted at Propeller Modern in Hayes Valley San Francisco, these clever buildings are made in small batches by San Francisco-based Chad Wright. Available in varying heights, the Attic Birdhouse has a concrete base with a screw-in stake that works on grass or hardscape surfaces.

Bargain hunters take note: the Attic Birdhouse is part of a FAB design sale starting September 6.

Above: The Attic Birdhouse is available in three dizzying heights: 51 inches; 58 inches; and 72 inches. Priced at $450, $500, and $600 respectively through Studio Chad Wright. If you are in San Francisco, they are also available at Propeller Modern.

Above: A nest box occupies the classically styled top of the structure.

Above: The house is accessorized with a wood dowel perch and a "chimney."

Above: A concrete base stabilizes the birdhouse with its weight and an attached screw-in stake.

Above: The Attic Birdhouse is offered in three colors: red, white, and robin's egg blue.

(NB: For more bird-inspired housing and accessories, see our other Birdhouse Features.)
