Thought you'd seen it all? You have now... Swedish design company develops the 'world's best bird house' so our feathered friends can really life the (ahem) high life
The two-storey home also features a manicured lawn and ‘tweet’ deck, complete with garden table and chairs as well as infinity bird bath and swinging perch.
Clas Ohlson, the Swedish company behind the bonkers bird house, is hoping UK demand for their bird houses will be high up the pecking order as, in recent years, the RSBP has encouraged British gardeners to make their homes more bird-friendly through initatives such as the Big Garden Birdwatch.
However, installing a bird house like this will provide the feathered creatures with much more than a simple soruce of water and a place to store seeds. The world’s best bird house also features a home gym, en-suite master bedroom, floating stairs and even a security alarm.
This might sound a bit bonkers, but last year a Derbyshire dog owner built a luxury pad for his pooch that was an exact replica of his own home, complete with fully fitted carpets and windows!
Despite it’s opulent design, the Clas Ohlson bird house is not available to buy, instead you are encouraged to design your own and have it custom built.
This unique approach to design is due to the unusual history of
the company, which was started in 1918 by Mr. Clas Ohlson and originally
sold blueprints to customers who lived in remote parts of Sweden and
weren’t able to get to shops to buy furniture.
For those of you looking for a cheaper version of the world’s best bird house, the Bird Feeder/House from Clas Ohlson is a scaled down model complete with front porch, windows and a chimmney. Its priced at £10.99.
Looking for more wacky products? Clas Ohlson, whose 12 UK stores include one in East Croydon, also sell a toy helicopter with built in camera (useful for flying around the garden and annoying the birds) and an outdoor LED light disguised as a rock (again, useful for scaring the birds).
