weathered shed birdhouseby Lynda and Jerry Glass $60.00
- the story
As you drive through the heartland, you can spot ancient wooden barns dotting the hillside. Many of them, once built for hard work, are faded now and can only offer picturesque charm. This wooden birdhouse, however, will bring that weathered, rustic appeal to your garden while still in the prime of its life.
This solidly built miniature shed is constructed old-world care using reclaimed cypress wood that would otherwise have been shredded into mulch. It's topped off with a galvanized metal roof and a sturdy loop for hanging. The design was also done with the comfort of its future residents in mind: there's space under the eaves to allow ventilation, and thin openings in the floor for drainage. A removable panel in the back allows the house to be cleaned out between tenants. Comes packaged in 100% recycled paper and a corrugated box made from post-consumer fiber. Handmade in Mississippi.

Lynda and Jerry Glass
Lynda and Jerry Glass began their careers doing custom home construction in Mississippi. In 1992, they began making bird houses and selling them on Saturday mornings at small local craft shows. After a few years of small-scale success, they ended their human-oriented business, joined up with Jerry's brother Larry, and began focusing entirely on exquisite, imaginative bird, butterfly and ladybug dwellings.
Lynda and Jerry's team is as talented as they are eclectic. Jerry is primarily responsible for both structural and aesthetic design. James, a woodworker with many years of experience, cuts the precise, tiny boards and other shapes needed, using only select grade yellow cypress harvested following Forest Stewardship Council guidelines and upcycled from local furniture manufacturing leftovers. Bobby Gene hand-applies each unique, stone-washed shingle cut by the special machinery designed in-house for that purpose.
The Heartwood crew create their own boxes from post-consumer fiber reclaimed from local factories. They ship tens of thousands of wooden houses a year, all made without cutting a single tree. collection
