Make a Little Recycled Birdhouse in Your Soul

Shelter some feathered friends, while supporting self-sufficiency, with these birdhouses crafted out of reclaimed materials and antique lumber. Hundreds of these structures are hammered together each year by the developmentally disabled residents of Brown's Foster Home, providing not only some income, but also a sense of accomplishment and dignity, as well.

Doubling as a collectible piece of folk art, each birdhouse is numbered, dated, and cataloged. Prices range from $35 to $75.

Just some of the materials the residents work with: 200-year-old barn boards, tree fungus, reclaimed trim boards from an antique house with five layers of peeling paint, rusty hardware, and drift wood.
