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.

Handmade Recycled Made in the USA

copper, cypress wood, non-toxic paint

Notes
Butterfly houses are meant to be used as garden decoration and are not guaranteed to attract butterflies to your yard. The cypress wood house and mounting stake are impervious to decay from rotting or insects. The stake is very simply threaded onto a female fitting on the house itself. No tools required!

Last year for Christmas I got my parents the butterfly puddler so when I saw the house I was really excited. It just arrived today and it's beautifully crafted and looks really well put together. The only reason I say it's 4 stars instead of 5 and that the con is it was inaccurate is because all the tiles of the roof are the same light wood color. I understand all of these houses are made by hand and I expected there to be some variation in colors and placement but I didn't expect them to be all the same color. It just doesn't have the same whimsical look as it does in the photo shown.

Beautiful, but...

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?

        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!

        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.

              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.
