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!

Absolutely incredible birdhouse ! Excellent craftsmanship and materials as well as being very functional. The store owner was great and kept up excellent communication throughout the purchase, construction and shipping. I can't recommend this shop highly enough - A+++++!!!!!
PLEASE NOTE: I will be on sabbatical starting February 2 through June 6 in order to replenish my stock for a three-day art festival ( I have left my Etsy Shop open (i.e., not in "vacation mode") so that my made-to-order birdhouses remain visible in search results and orders may be submitted for a production schedule that will resume on June 6. On that day I will begin work on any orders submitted between now and then in the order in which they were submitted. Any birdhouses remaining from the art fair will be listed in the shop in the Birdhouses Available Now section. I will be posting photos of the birdhouses that will be on sale at the art fair (some of which will be one-of-a-kind pieces) on my Facebook page (http://on.fb.me/1HK7hfC) over the next couple of months as I make them. Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop. Please come back.
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.

- Accepts Etsy gift cards
PLEASE NOTE: I will be on sabbatical until June 6 so that I can restock my inventory for a spring art fair (Prairie Village Art Show 2016, Kansas City). I am not using Etsy's vacation mode because I want my birdhouses to show up in search results and to be available for purchase by anyone who is willing to wait until after June 6 to receive a birdhouse. I will create birdhouses in the order in which the Etsy orders come in. Please contact me before ordering to see what the projected date of shipping will be. Thank you for your interest and please come back.
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.
