Marianne and I are retired professionals who live just outside of Stratford. We started designing and making birdhouses in 2016 as homes for small birds on our country property and as gifts for family and friends. We set up a website on Etsy (northernbirdhouses.etsy.com) and found that our designs were popular throughout Canada and the United States. We have also made custom birdhouses, including two for the Little House on the Prairie Museum in Kansas.
Our designs have been inspired by travels to Quebec, Colonial Williamsburg and Europe. The intent of our work is to create beautiful art in the form of wood birdhouses that are practical, creative and good for the environment.
