Nestled in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, Craig & Christa Andrews operate a family-owned and operated business. Their birdhouses are lovingly hand-crafted using freshly-milled and reclaimed barn wood, rescued from aging barns found in the scenic Hudson Valley of New York. Some old timbers date back 100 years or more, and are skillfully transformed into unique birdhouses with the charm of yesteryear.
Careful hand-distressing of the new wood is accomplished through a multi-step process in our own workshop in Ulster County. The paints used stand the test of time and weather beautifully. Each piece is hand-nailed and screwed together for long-lasting strength. No glues are used in construction. Because no two pieces of aged wood are alike, each birdhouse has it's very own personality. As a result, every birdhouse built is truly one-of-a-kind. They are equally attractive indoors as out.
All birdhouses are fully functional with removable bottoms for cleaning.
Handmade of new, distressed, and time-tempered wood, these are pieces with a sense of time and permanence; crafted using the time-honored techniques of master wood workers.
Every effort is made to be as "green" as possible, reusing and recycling whenever possible.
