Announcement    Wow...the Holidays are sneaking up on us again! Birdhouses make the perfect gift for everyone. You can use them outdoors, as a decorative motif in the house or sit them on your porch to add a splash of uniqueness as guest approach the front door.

Artistic Wooden Cedar Bird Houses Unique, Well Built, For Garden Cavity Nesting Birds And Bird Watching Enjoyment. Handmade In The USA.

MY VISION AS AN ARTIST: Birdhouse Work Shoppe by Michele (that's me) where handmade bird houses become a work of art and built for the comfort of birds who need a place to nest and raise there young. Birds love my houses like the chickadee, nuthatch, titmouse, wren, western and eastern bluebirds, american bluebirds, house sparrows, house finch, violet green swallow, woodpecker, screech owls and I am sure there are a few more I didn't mention. Birdhouses built strong and will last long. How I know this? I have them in my garden and they've been there for years, through rain, snow, freeze and sun. The wood is 5/8 inch thick, not thin like most you see in the stores. Plus I use quality glue and nails that are meant for the outdoors, along with the paint on the exterior only (I always leave the inside clean of chemicals)

SHIPPING CHARGES: This is a challenge for me since my birdhouses weigh between 6 lbs to 20 lbs, depending on their size, some are larger than others. USPS, FedEx and other shippers charge a significant amount on packages with large dimensions and weight. In each listing the weight and dimensions of the box can bring the costs up significantly, depending on the location. Please know that I DO NOT set these prices, it is the Postal Services who set the price for the shipping costs. All items in my shop are weighed and calculated to the exact size box and weight in order to give a realistic price for shipping. As a seller, small business owner, it is recognized that these shipping charges can be a deal breaker. Please know and understand that boxes, bubble-wrap, tissue paper and shipping tape all come at a price and comes out of our pockets in order for consumers to receive that special item to your door.

When there is a birdhouse in my SOLD OUT that you LOVE, no worries, I can make it or as close as possible, painted in the colors you like. Just ask and I will make you a reserved listing. (NOTE: All reserved listings must be paid in full before work is started)

Accomplished Author of two books ~ "Handmade Birdhouses and Feeders" and "Handmade Bird, Bee, and Bat Houses", published by CICO Books, Ryland, Peters & Small. Many of my birdhouses have been featured in Birds & Blooms, Long Leaf Style Magazine, Handmade Living Magazine and Bises Magazine (Japan).

Did you check out my reviews? There are so many happy customers that love my birdhouses. I've been told my bird houses are unique and one-of-a-kind. I like that. Makes me do the happy dance.

Video summary: Me in my workshop building birdhouses.

The Birdhouse Work Shoppe

~ Watch my video on the about page where you can see that I make all my creations myself. I've had so many people ask me if I get the bird boxes from China and then embellish them. Nope. All my woodworking is done with my own two hands and all the designs as well.

~ I've been blessed with a book company, CICO Books, Ryland, Peters & Small, London and New York, that asked me to create a how to book on building birdhouses. Now I have two books under my belt and feel very proud that I'm a published Author and have accomplished many things in my life.

HOW IT BEGAN
~ I've discovered how much fun it is to watch birds, studying their habits and learning what certain garden birds like in birdhouses. Building birdhouses for cavity nesting birds not only satisfies my creativity, it helps birds find safe places to raise their young.

~There's never a dull moment in my adventures of finding new things to embellish or construct my birdhouses with. My walks with my lady friends always turns out to be each of us carrying some kind of object back home that will be a part of one creation or another. I love them for that...supper supportive.

~ Designing, engineering and constructing well built birdhouses for birds since 2008 with accomplishments of a ‘How To Books’ Handmade Birdhouses and Feeders, Handmade Bird, Bee and Bat Houses, Published by Cico Books, which is in several languages. You can find my books world wide and in several different languages.

~I've been featured in three magazines such as Birds & Blooms, Handmade Living, Long Leaf Style, Bises Magazine of Japan and now Roger's Gardens of Newport Beach. I feel truly blessed with all and hope to be in more.

~ Wood birdhouses are made from raw untreated fence material which makes it easier on the birds by allowing the roughness of the interior for birds to grab, along with a dowel that protrudes through for extra grabbing power. Each birdhouse I build has a unique roof design, by me, which allows for ventilation air flow on each underside of eaves. Every decorative bird house or functional birdhouse is equipped with a clean out door on either the right or left hand side for nest removal. Whether you choose to use it indoors for decorative home accent or hang it on your patio, tree, fence or just sitting on a shelf, it's meant for small cavity nesting birds. Birdhouse accent materials are adhered with clear silicone that is weatherproof and freeze proof for that extra longevity outdoors. I use quality glue, nails and decorative screws to hold my birdhouses together.

~All birdhouses are constructed by me with consideration of the bird’s wants, needs and functionality. Each bird house is equipped with a clean out door for proper nest removal, either on right or left side, as well as the roof. Most of my bird houses hang from heavy wire attached to the roof edge, which you can easily hang from decorative iron planter stands, tree limbs and open eye hooks.

~Handcrafted functional birdhouses for birds nesting needs or to use as home decor. I create them with pride and do my best to use quality materials to ensure they will last. Weather will do its part on the birdhouse of course, but if you varnish each year with Marine Varnish you will enjoy these handmade birdhouses for years to come.

~Creating bird feeders with different designs that will give many hours of enjoyment in watching birds gather in your garden. Feeding is a great way to earn birds trust in order to study which species visit your garden spot.

~Got bats? I build bat houses too! Bats eat 1000 mosquitoes and hour! That pretty impressive and it's a good idea to encourage these winged mammals to take refuge by providing a house they can sleep in during the day and get those pesky bugs at night.
