Here are two bird houses made to mimic clients actual homes. I really like doing these but man is it a lot of work. I usually start by building a wood frame. Then places the walls, sometimes finishing the more complicated walls (usually the front) prior to attaching to the frame. I try to give each house at least one focus point of detail. For these two, the focus point was the entrance. Using mahogany wood and carving the doors, Real slate for patios and hand painted chimneys. Each of the windows on the first house have 16 individual pieces of wood.

The latest build was a custom match to a previous home. A college friend wanted to bring some memories of his D.C. home to his new house in NJ. Over 200 individual pieces of wood went into this build. The roofs are lined with aluminum sheeting and then individual cut asphalt shingles. The paint is an exact match. I labor of love.

This is my first commissioned piece. A recreation of an old downtown Richmond town home. A big project to say the least. No plans and no prebuilt pieces, just a picture to work from. All custom fabrication from straight wood stock. Olivia even left her touch of personality on the inside of the back doors!

The process, old wood from a dump pile to bird house. About three hours of work here.
