Announcement   Thank you so much for your interest!

My name is Matt and I'm an independent artist and the father of two grown sons . I am a hands-on kind of guy that loves tinkering in the woodshop. After many years of ideas and plans roaming through my head, I've finally had many of those ideas come to fruition.

Much of my inspiration comes from Bauhaus and De Stijl movements, the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and mid century design. I've always shown an interest in birding and bird houses.

After scouring the web, I found there are only a handful of artisans that actually combine the two. The idea for chürp was born and creations started early in 2012, now my birdhomes are now featured here, on my Etsy page.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding design and materials used for my birdhomes.

I'm a big fan of these birdhouses! They are not only beautiful, but they are extremely well-built and completely functional. Wonderful attention to detail. I enjoy them very much.

I love his work! Glad to see it on Etsy as well as art shows. This is my second churp modern birdhouse. Some display them as art. They are art, but I also use them outdoors for birds. Great transaction! I received it well before Etsy allowed me to post a review.

About

This is for the bürds!

Welcome to chürp modern!

My name is Matt Estrada, a 50ish father of two grown sons and a lover of birds, modern architecture and everything mid century!

What started as a hobby several years ago grew into my business of chürp modern. I first started with my Etsy shop and within two months had already shipped my modern birdhome designs coast-to-coast.

I dabbled a bit into showing at high-end juried art fairs and festivals then in 2014, my vision really took off and I left my corporate job of 30 years to focus solely on my art. It was a HUGE leap of faith, but I went all in and in June of 2014 became a full-time independent artist. I'm now spending about 30 weekends per year traveling from Florida to the Midwest sharing my creativity with art lovers!

My designs are an extension of myself and with all handmade items, a bit of my heart goes into each piece. I am still a one man show, but predict within a year I'll be adding a helper to keep up with demand.

Thank you for reading my story and enjoy life!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

I use an exterior grade wood stain on my designs. I have it custom tinted to give me the bright colors. I don't use paint. Any natural cedar surfaces will weather and turn a silvery gray color.

Wholesale availability

I do wholesale with a minimum initial order of 8 birdhomes.

Sizing details

The entry hole is the same on all of my designs. 1.5". Depending your area of the country and placement the residents will vary. Bluebirds, Tufted Titmouse, Nuthatch, Chickadee, Tree Swallow, Downy Woodpecker and occasionally Wrens.
