Cut from knot-free/clear cedar, have slightly rough to smooth surfaces, pieces are selected and sorted, include perch block if requested in comments field, and are kept in stock. Western Red Cedar is a soft wood, so pre-drilled nail holes are not necessary, nor recommended. The following photo is a sample of what the surface of basic clear cedar looks like.
Deluxe Kits **DISCONTINUED**
Cut from machine-planed knot-free/clear cedar, resulting in at least one primary smooth surface. Deluxe Kits include all pieces from the Basic Kit package. Add extra time for delivery, as these are usually cut-to-order. All kit models are available with this option. The following photo is a sample of what the surface of planed clear cedar looks like.
Bargain Kits **DISCONTINUED**
Cut from cedar that has all or some pieces containing one or more of the following: knots, worm holes, uneven thickness, warped surfaces, dents, chips, minor cracks, medium to major soiling, and/or stains. Pieces are bulk cut and are NOT sorted, may be aged wood or new cedar, but all pieces of each kit are of the same style. Bargain kits are perfectly fine to assemble, but you may have to adjust nail locations to avoid knots. Best assembled by adults. Bargain kits are not normally stocked; however, they are frequently processed and available—add 1-3 days to an order. **BARGAIN KITS ARE NOT PRE-DRILLED FOR OPENING PANELS AND DO NOT INCLUDE SCREWS** The following photo is a sample of what the surfaces of bargain boards looks like.
Retail Packaging for Kits
We are set up primarily for bulk shipments and ship kits in that fashion. Our bulk kits are banded together and shipped with packets of nails and tip sheets. We do, however, offer retail packaging for most kit models. Kits packaged for retail are shipped as shown...in a clear 4 mil plastic bag with a package header describing what is inside the bag. Instructions and nails/screws are included. We recommend selecting this option if you are going to send a kit to someone as a gift. Otherwise, if you're going to ship to yourself for assembly, we recommend that you skip this option to save $$.
