Fabulous!  I have no place to put one of these, but I want one anyway, lol!

What are the insides like? Completely open or "shelves"/nesting platforms?

I would so live in one of those. They are obviously so well made and well planned.

These are simply stunning.  If the insides are removable that must make for easy cleaning. I have an orphan dove that would love to visit  Smiley
