Little creatures need homes but why do they all have to be so rustic?  My partner Dita has tackled this problem head on with a range of creature houses that are anything but.  Birdhouse Stacked 2First she designed bird houses that are so unique and functional they are a pleasure to view but provide a safe and happy home for a nest of baby birds in our back yard.  So what is different about our design? Well first, she uses clear cedar and adds design details like square holes and a cantilevered roof.  The front door swings open for ease of cleaning and the houses come stained in two different finishes, clear and either green or red.
