We moved to the Ozark Mountains 32 years ago with our two children, a third was born here. After leaving college, we bought an old stone building on a mountaintop that we have transformed into our house and studio. Surrounded by timber and overlooking Table Rock Lake, We have loved being here all this time. Our kids are now grown but live close by, and come back often with their families. I hope you enjoy our birdhouses and feeders as much as our birds do.
Thanks, Debbie
