Birdhouse is from a kit. The kit comes with wood that is pre- cut. Nails. Glue. Peg. Chain. Hooks. Are included. Assembly is required. Glue for the wood is also included. There is a trick to it. If you buy this model run the chain under the roof before you attach the roof. The hooks are under the roof. You have to place the hooks in the edge of the roof supports before you place the roof on top. Put some glue on it before you place it on top. There are no nails for the roof to hold to the supports. The roof is removable. But I used a little glue anyway. I purchased this birdhouse from Amazon. It is made in China. It is easy enough for a kids project. Be careful of small pieces that can cause choking.
I painted it with primer. Added a star and some little squares for tiny windows. I put a plastic circle on the peg and slid it back to help secure the peg. It is for smaller birds. Nice decoration for outside.
