Announcement   JukeHouses are wild and colorful 4-dimensional birdhouses (the 4th dimension being the time and place they take you back to). JukeHouses do not play music, they're simply birdhouses, each with a real 45RPM record decorating the front entrance. The JukeHouse Artist handpaints each JukeHouse to illustrate the song title, some with a serious theme, others very silly. Please browse the JukeHouse Gallery, look for your favorite song, and enjoy the fun.

Welcome to the JukeHouse Gallery! JukeHouses are birdhouses with 45RPM records attached, shaped like jukeboxes, or round. Every JukeHouse is handmade, handpainted, and protected with 3 separate coatings, ready to hang or display, indoors or out. Each JukeHouse is designed, constructed, painted, numbered, signed, and sent out into the world by the JukeHouse Artist.

Some folks ask why JukeHouses do not have perches attached at the entrance hole. There are no perches because a perch is really an invitation for predators to sit and disturb the young in the nest. Mother birds will perch on a branch near a birdhouse, then fly right in.

Each JukeHouse is unique in the sense that no two JukeHouses are painted identically, however a basic design for a popular song title may be repeated. We will be happy to reproduce a design that you may have seen and admired, but there will be some differences, if only in the color or species of the bird depicted.

We take special requests! Custom orders will be filled as promptly as possible, depending on current workload, season of year, etc. Custom orders will need to be discussed with the JukeHouse Artist very soon after item is ordered, to verify desired cost level, availability of requested record, and of course, the deadline (when you need it). Before placing a custom order, we will need to bounce ideas off each other, especially if it's a gift for someone, so be thinking about their hobbies, favorite places, favorite songs, favorite musicians, etc. We've had some very strange requests, but we've always managed to come up with a good idea. Click on "Request Custom Item" for a special request.

If you would like to own a JukeHouse, or give a JukeHouse as a gift, here is what you need to know.

The 45RPM record was never intended to be stored outdoors, so please be aware that the record's printed label will most certainly fade if hung in direct sunlight. If you choose to preserve your JukeHouse as a work of art, it's best to display it indoors.

If displayed outdoors, your JukeHouse will provide a cool home for backyard songbirds, but it will weather over time as will any birdhouse. Outdoors, it will last longer if placed out of direct sunlight; in a gazebo, under a carport, or deep in the woods beyond your tennis courts and carriage house (for example), where the sun does not penetrate the treetops. Rounded tops of JukeHouses are internally sealed to prevent leaky roofs. Bottom panels are removeable for occasional cleanout.

Most folks who recieve a gift JukeHouse like to treasure it indoors for all to admire, eventually moving it outside for the birds to enjoy.

Parts of this message are repeated on each JukeHouse's product description because we want each customer to be completely satisfied, with the only surprises being positive ones. Please read the JukeHouse Gallery's shop profile for more information.
