My Mission

I turn reclaimed, vintage wood, tin and metal roofing and odd pieces of hardware into birdhouses of architectural beauty and distinction. Though weathered, each piece of wood and metal is carefully selected for its structural integrity and good to last for many years to come. All of my designs are original and are my own. Most of my material comes from Midwest-area farm buildings in various stages of decline or deconstruction. Each of my birdhouses is handmade and designed to serve the needs of small backyard cavity-nesting birds (e.g., chickadees, wrens, titmice, nuthatches, warblers) according to ornithological recommendations from The Audubon Society and The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service in regard to interior dimensions, materials, and issues such as ventilation, predator guards, and clean-out access. Most important, each birdhouse exhibits a distinct architectural style and art, part of the aesthetic appeal deriving from the tension between architectural sophistication and vintage material, with the added effect that many years, sometimes many decades of weathering have had on the appearance of the materials, often producing beautiful surface textures and colors.

I really do love this birdhouse. I have bought several from him and they are all superbly crafted!!! Such attention to detail. No other birdhouses can compete with his creations. I am so lucky I got mine! Besides all that, he is a really nice man. Hope you get one of his creations too.

After eyeing the beautiful and unique reclaimed birdhouse masterpieces created by Ted Freeman, my husband and I knew we had to have one customized to coordinate with our craftsman home in Seattle. He is so talented and we respect his work so much, we just wanted to be surprised and relinquish the creative license to him (btw - when it comes to home decor, this pretty much never happens in our home :D). We just sent him a photo of our home and the three preferred style options. He chose the William Morris for us and applied his expertise on the finish color and mixed materials. When it arrived, it was so fun to open the box and see how beautifully it all came together. Truly, a special masterpiece. Ted is so thoughtful and talented...not to mention an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. Thank you, Ted!

Welcome to Roundhouse Works. Each of my birdhouses is handmade, designed to serve the needs of small backyard cavity-nesting birds according to ornithological recommendations from The Audubon Society and The U.S Department of Wildlife in regard to interior dimensions, materials, and issues such as ventilation, predator guards, and clean-out access. Most important to me is that each birdhouse exhibit architectural style and art. I strive for an aesthetic appeal that comes from the combination of classic design styles (e.g., art deco, arts and crafts), vintage materials, and the beautiful textures and colors that many years, sometimes many decades of weathering have produced. Though weathered, each piece of wood and metal is carefully selected for its structural integrity and likely to last for many years to come.

______________________

With the exception of made-to-order items your item will be shipped within 48 business day hours of purchase. Please contact me prior to a purchase if you require shipping to Hawaii or Alaska. Made-to-order items will be shipped according to an estimated production schedule. Please contact me before ordering a made-to-order item to understand this schedule. Due to size and weight, I ship each birdhouse separately, so there is no discount for multiple purchases. To protect both your birdhouse during shipping and the environment I use recycled bubble wrap and newspaper. I reuse shipping materials whenever possible, including boxes.

For the 48 contiguous states I will ship via FedEx ground, which averages 2-3 days for delivery. For shipping to Hawaii or Alaska, I use USPS. Rates for these two states will be calculated based on size and weight of the shipment. I will ship to any country outside of the US. Contact me to get a quote for any non-US shipment.

I can include a card indicating that the birdhouse is a gift from you if appropriate.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for any reason you're unsatisfied with any item you purchase from me, please let me know within 30 days and I will be happy to correct any material defects, allow you to exchange the item for any other item in my shop (while accounting for any differences in price), or simply return your money to you (including shipping costs both ways) when you return the item to me, no questions asked.
