Half-timbered houses find their history in Germany. The first half-timbered houses were farmhouses in which a supporting frame of wooden beams was filled with wickerwork of willow, oak or hazel with clay or mortar. Besides the availability of material and the low cost of construction, there was another advantage for the farmers. The peasantry usually did not have hereditary rights, if the farmer had to move, the house could be demolished within a few days and rebuilt elsewhere.This small half-timbered house is specially designed for the blue tit. It offers good nesting not only for the blue tit, but also the crested tit, marsh tit, willow tit and coal tit. During severe weather conditions, the nesting box offers shelter and protection.
