Roundhouseworks' Shop Announcement


Thank you for your interest in Roundhouse Works. I will be in art-show-inventory mode from Jan. 14 until the beginning of May and will not be taking orders during this period. After finishing with several backlog orders, some Iisted here as RESERVED ITEMS, I will be devoting all of my time to creating an inventory of birdhouses for a spring art fair.

Until I return you can see the made-to-order birdhouses in my Etsy shop and their prices via Pinterest:

Your contact is very important to me, so I will be monitoring Etsy conversations and email ( and will get back to you ASAP.

Thank you,
Ted Freeman

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.
