About

Rocksntwigs~ Stone Birdhouses a great piece of functional art for the birds & your yard.

Each stone birdhouse at Rocksntwigs is handcrafted in the foothills of Northern California.
I use as many found and natural objects as possible.
These stone birdhouses are original and one of a kind. No two are alike, making them a unique piece of art for your yard or patio. They make great indoor decorations too.
The stones and twigs are collected from the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
As added adornment, I use sand, gravel, glass, old hardware and other novelty objects as accent pieces to make your birdhouse as unique as possible.

The process for making my birdhouses is a 4-7 day affair (weather depending).
After I decide what size of the house I want to make I go to the shop, cut out the wood base, then I go to the assembly line side, where I arrange the stones, pieces of glass and whatever I have gathered. I then take a nontoxic marine grade adhesive and start creating. After all, is done and dry( 3-4 days) I take the houses outside and apply several layers of a marine grade polyurethane, letting each coat dry.
Then comes the fun time … Taking their pictures, putting them on my ETSY store and then putting them in their boxes so they can go to your home to be enjoyed by you and the birds.

    I have always had a passion for nature. When I moved to the Foothills of Northern California it really opened up my passion to create, there is so much beauty here it is amazing.

My inspiration comes from nature, and as I hike through the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California I see so much wonder and awe. I try to convey this in my creations. Being creative has always been a passion of mine, ever since i was a small child, I was always building something.

Each birdhouse is priced according to the time involved to create and the number of supplies that I have used to make these unique style birdhouses. I hope you understand.

Each one of my birdhouses is created with the utmost attention to care, detail and eye appeal, also they are all functional and ready for the birds to use and you to enjoy.

The bottom on the majority of my birdhouses has 2 very easy and secure screws that you can remove so that cleaning is a breeze.

Most of my birdhouses are made to hang, if not that will be noted in the listing.

Shipping
Because the rocks and wood I use for the birdhouse can be heavy, my shipping cost has to reflect that weight I hope you understand this, I am not here to make money on your shipping fees.
I ship all orders with a tracking number. For international orders please be advised that there is no tracking number.
Additional policies and FAQs
I use a non-toxic, environmentally friendly outdoor/Indoor Spar urethane that protects your birdhouse/feeder from the damage of sunlight, rain, moisture, and temperature changes. This waterproofs along with keeping that high gloss look we all love. I do suggest that about every year you re-spray it with spar varnish.

The adhesive I use is waterproof and non-toxic and not tested on animals. I have tested it in many rain storms and even my shower with hot and cold water for many hours.

The houses that I have in my own yard are over 12 years old and are holding up strong and still look as they did the day I hung them up.
All of my items are waterproof, functional and do attract the birds to your yard.

^^^^For shipping outside of the United States^^^^^ the buyer is responsible for all duty fees, VAT, tariffs and taxes. The buyer will also be responsible for all customs issues.
**** Please check with your government before ordering, some countries do not allow the wood and stones to be imported. If your country does not allow such itemsto I will not ship to your country as this will get both of us in trouble with the law. If you are purchasing outside the USA I will check and see if it is allowed, if not, I will send you a conversation and refund all monies.
Thank you for understanding.****

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

I make sure my birdhouses are sturdy and can take the elements. I use a marine grade glue and a marine grade spar varnish, so the rain and snow will not affect them.
There are two screws on the floor that make for easy cleaning on the majority of the houses. The hanging houses and feeders have 2 large screw eyes securely attached to the roof so they can be hung with ease.

Like the shine? Don't we all, I have found with the ones in my yard that if every year or two I re-spray them with a marine grade polyurethane they keep the shine much longer.

Want a custom order?

Want a custome order, differant size? Just ask and I will be glad to work with you but, please understand that all custom orders are non-refundable.
Because no rock or stone is the same I will not be able to duplicate the exact one but I can come very close.

I will probably be called a pest with all the conversations I send with questions on your special creaton, but, I want to make sure we are both pleased with that special order.

Care instructions

How well do these hold up you ask? Mine in my yard are over 10 years old, I do give them a spray of urethane every other year or so to keep the shine going, otherwise they are holding up very well and even have repeat visitors coming to nest each year.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Want to send as a gift and add that special note? I can do that, just tell me what to put on the card and who to send it to.
