Wood care protection specialist Cuprinol has commissioned the world’s most regal bird house to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Peckingham Palace, has been built by the brand and place in Northwest London, featuring similar features as that of Buckingham Palace, including the Royal Balcony and a real Tweetdeck.

Tweets will also be sent through the account @PeckinghamTweet, each time a bird enters of leaves the palace, which also features a large Union Jack feeding area as its grounds.

The meter long box also showcases Cuprinol’s limited edition Jubilee colours, and is made from pinewood, with five shades of Cuprinol incorporated. In total it took the designers 336 hours to build.

Kathryn Ledson, Cuprinol marketing manager, explained: “Creating Peckingham Palace is the perfect way to demonstrate our range of garden colour paints whilst celebrating the jubilee. The process was incredibly intrinsic compared to the build of a standard bird box and was a real test of craftsmanship, but we think the end result is certainly fit for a queen! We just hope it inspires others to show their patriotic side through their gardens this summer and add a Royal sprucing-up in-time for the Diamond Jubilee.”

A promotion will also run on Facebook to promote Diamond Jubilee Cuprinol, where gardeners will be able to upload pictures of their own patriotic creations in the run up to the event in June.
