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.

Absolutely love this and so do my butterflies!


I absolutely love this little house! It looks gorgeous in the garden and was very easy to set up. I was skeptical that butterflies would actually use it at all. However, I've had so many seek shelter inside during the rain! What was even more exciting was just how many butterflies have decided to do their chrysalis inside and outside of the house this year! I've been able to get some absolutely gorgeous photos because of this house and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that loves keeping a butterfly garden. Mine is setup in the garden surrounded by several different host plants for various species of butterfly. Pretty much every species in my northwest Indiana garden enjoys this little house!

Beautiful decoration for the flower beds/yard

Chesterton, Indiana


Bought as a gift, but would buy again for myself!


Love the design of the butterfly house - haven't had a chance to use it yet (especially since it's the winter here in the northeast!), but look forward to seeing if the butterflies like it as much as we do. Thoughtfully comes with a mounting post.

It is beautiful, perfect!


This was a gift, and my daughter was very happy with it. It is highly attractive, and it looks perfect among her lantanas

Great house for rent


Really great gift idea, mom loved it. If you want tenants, try planting some Black Knights or Butterfly weed in the area.

Houston, TX


Perfect Gift!


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!

Chicago, Il and Harbor Country, MI


Just as expected!


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.

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?
