Made in Mississippi

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.

      The butterfly house now stands in the middle of a newly developed butterfly garden waiting for its first guests. We are happy to help change the world ... One butterfly at a time. A beautiful and hopefully an effective addition to the flower bed!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Wooden Butterfly House:

      The butterfly house is just as is pictured on the site. It's solidly built and the color is lovely. We have just installed it in our backyard, with the stake provided, so now we're waiting to see if butterflies we be attracted to it.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Wooden Butterfly House:

      Absolutely beautiful, but had to glue house to post due to screw unlatching inside the house. It did work, thankfully. Eyecatching, wonder if butterflies really use it?

            My Mom was very excited about this -- she lives in Texas, a warmer climate than ours---and can't wait to see if Butterflys really use it, but was equally excited for the added color & whimsy in her flower garden.
