Announcement   Hi,
I hope you enjoy your time in my shop.
I want you to know that I will always strive to give you something you will be happy with and proud of. Mama Lu and I are in our 70's and we take personal satisfaction in doing a good job for you.
My 'Dun Rite Fly Inns' are all our own original designs. 'Dun Rite' because they are hand crafted of CEDAR, the wood 'logs' are cut from wind fall along the river on our small farm and the roofs are hand corrugated galvanized sheet metal, and insulated against the heat. Our hole size is 1 1/8- 1 1/4", just right for small nesting birds.
If you are ordering from my 'Made to Order" section I can usually fill your order within 1-3 business days. Some custom orders may require a little more time than others depending on size and details and that info is in the listing. Additional customization, other than color options, may require additional time and can be done for an additional charge depending on the details and changes requested, using the 'custom order' feature.
If you have any questions, just message me.
Thanks, PJ

About

Papa Jon Bryan

I try to approach life with a sense of adventure and humor and my art reflects both. All of my birdhouses are our own original designs, hand crafted by me with the help of my wife of 49 years.
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 cultures 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 49 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.
Marilu has been painting for more than 40 years and enjoys exhibiting her art here on etsy as well as in local galleries.

Care instructions

Our 'fly inns' are treated with a clear protective sealer, we use water proof paints. All of our birdhouses have clean out doors that are easy to use, no screws to remove. It is recommended that you clean them once a year. As with anything, winter weather can be harsh so even though they are made for outdoor use, you might want to take them down during harsh winter months.
