Announcement   Hi,
I hope you enjoy your time in my shop. I had back surgery on 04 August so I have been closed for a bit-I'm recovering well and am happy to be back. If you place an order it may take a few days to complete because I am still moving pretty slow.
I want you to know that I know you work hard and I will work hard to make and fill your orders as if I were making them for a close friend or for myself, because I always strive to give you something you will be happy with and proud of.
If you are ordering from my 'Made to Order" section and need a special gift, please allow a little extra time to be sure it can be completed.
If you have any questions, just message me.
Thanks, PJ

This is a fantastic creation. It is intended as a gift an I can't wait to see the recipient's face when she opens it. Highly recommend this vendor. It is better than I imagined (and I have a good imagination!).

About

Papa Jon Bryan

I believe that life should be approached with a sense of adventure and humor and my art reflects both. All of my birdhouses are hand crafted by me, the body, the hand hammered roofs, all hand done work.
I understand that you work hard for your dollars and with that in mind, I truly appreciate your business and make an effort to be sure each item I ship out is done to the standard I would want if I were the buyer.
My 'story' is really told more in detail, on my profile page. I started building birdhouses on a whim, after retiring from road construction. Besides owning and running an excavation business, I also worked for many years as a truck driver. Together with my wife we operated a small import business for about 12 years, where we designed and imported home décor and arts and crafts from exotic places in the world. That experience was a great adventure and allowed us to travel and see places and culture we would never have experienced otherwise.
I create one of a kind hand crafted birdhouses that are both unique and functional. Each birdhouse features an insulated hand hammered corrugated metal roof and a clean out door as well as adequate ventilation. The roofs of my birdhouses are insulated against the heat. They are crafted of premium cedar with various other elements. Started in 2004 to supplement my retirement income, Papa Jon's Fly Inns quickly took on a life of their own. Initially exhibiting in art fairs, I have won numerous awards including Best of Show, Judges Choice, as well as others, and been feature in various articles. Since retiring to a small farm in Dayton, WA with my wife of 47 years, we have scaled back on art shows. Setting up shop on Etsy is allowing us more time for creativity. My wife and I are totally enjoying this new Adventure and working together on our small farm in our little corner of Adventure World, with our 2 rescue English bulldogs always close at hand. Even though we are getting older and experiencing a new stage we believe that it is important to keep 'doing', and we still find that life is an Adventure. Etsy is making it possible for us to continue the adventure in a new way.
My wife has been painting for more than 40 years and enjoys exhibiting her art here as well as in local galleries.

Welcome to my shop. At Adventure World Originals, LLC
I design and build our birdhouses on our small farm in Eastern Washington. All of our birdhouses are our own original designs. I strive to provide you with unique, quality birdhouses that are functional as well as decorative. My birdhouses are quirky, humorous, colorful, and FUN-ctional. Each birdhouse is a one-of-a-kind work of art, intended for outdoor use and ready to grace your garden and your life.

All of the oil paintings are by my wife, Marilu Bryan. Marilu has been painting for more than 40 years, but took some time out to raise a family and help with the family business. Since we retired to our small farm in Dayton, she has been able to find more time for her art. We have been exhibiting in art shows across the northwest, but have decided to retire from that circuit in order to have more time for the things we enjoy, including our farm and our art.

All of our work is copyrighted: - It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in plagiarism.

Additional policies and FAQs
All items are hand crafted. most are made to order, and minor variations in color, size, etc. and slight imprefections are indicative of hand craft and are to be expected. These variations lend to the unique quality and character of hand crafted items.

Many of my items are made to order as per your color selections.
