Single Wren Houses are "nesting boxes" for most types of wrens, chickadees, nuthatch and downy woodpeckers. This year I have three styles to select from. The houses are solidly built using construction grade hot glue, nails and screws. All roofs are cedar and are removable for seasonal cleaning. Basically the only differences are the cork trim and the type of wood used. Most mount on a post, some to a wall (flatback).  Below are three different styles of houses.

DAVE'S TRADITIONAL BIRDHOUSES: These are the birdhouses I have been building for the last five years.  I enjoy the Shanty House above and will probably phase these out after they are sold. Built from barnwood and cedar with removable roofs.

BASIC BIRD HOUSES: My basic birdhouses have been designed as starter houses. They are basically inexpensive, not everyone is ready to spend fifty dollars on a birdhouse. They are simple in design, with either colored bodies or colored roofs trimmed with plastisc/rubber wine corks. The roof may be removed for cleaning by removing two screws. These houses mount to a post or railing.

NEW THIS YEAR IS MY SHANTY HOUSE: The sloaping sides give this house a whimsical appearance to make you and the birds smile! They are built from barnwood and old furniture. The cedar roofs come off for seasonal cleaning by removing two wooden pins. The starting cost for these houses is $49.00. Sizes, cork trim and roof design vary to give each house its own individual look.
