Made in Britain - Timber Animal & Bird Houses
Flyte so Fancy Ltd are based in Dorset, halfway between Sherborne and Dorchester, and our large workshop sits beside our retail shop here in the village of Pulham. Visitors always welcome, we are open every weekday.
Flyte so Fancy began in 2001 making Dovecotes, Bird Tables, Pet Houses and Chicken Coops - and we have been manufacturing all kinds of timber poultry and pet houses ever since. We are so proud of the quality we produce, and how we do it, and we want you to like it too.
All our timber units (including Dorset Log Stores and Framebow designs) are designed and hand made here in our own workshop. Our workshop ‘gaggle’ is a terrific team of 10 experienced carpenters and wirers who take great pride in their work, at their most content when up to their ankles in sawdust (metaphorically speaking!).
Everything made here at Flyte so Fancy goes through the most rigorous and hard to please testers we can find i.e. the Flyte so Fancy flock and menagerie. New designs are ‘field tested’ before putting into production.
We take quality seriously and our ethos of ‘just good enough isn’t good enough’ sits at the heart of everything we do. We import our pressure treated timber directly from Sweden to our own profile requirements, so we can control the quality and finish of our products throughout manufacture. See also ‘About our Houses’ for full details.
Our Houses and Stores are constructed from the best quality Scandinavian Redwood, a close-grain timber that will last for years without further preservative treatment. Only after a relaxing holiday, air-drying in authentic Dorset wind and sunshine - for up to six weeks to make the moisture content just right - do we start to build your unit. We advocate following our advice about Pressure Treated (Tanalised) Timber and how to look after it to ensure you get the best life from your unit.
In short; we love wood and the simple joy of working with a natural breathing material, so we choose our timber with care to make sure we give you a long-lasting, eco-friendly product that is safe for all creatures.
Flyte so Fancy offer unique designs made with skill and passion in the Heart of Dorset.
