Painted cotes and posts are still made from pressure treated timber therefore the five coats of hand brushed paint we apply provides still more layers of protection.
The Cheltenham Six Painted dovecote is a six sided cote on two levels, affording segregated nesting for six pair of doves. As is the case with all my dovecotes I use ALL joinery grade red pine, which has been pressure treated to last many years without a need to re-treat.
The walls floors and internal partitions are tongue and grooved boards. The roof is clad in timber tiles over a marine grade timber liner. For durability and stability the cote includes a glued and screwed box section pressure treated timber post.
