Bluebird Houses Made of Antique Rustic Barn Wood

We've enjoyed such success in attracting bluebirds with our own bluebird houses that we decided to offer them for sale as well.

Yet these lovely bird houses are not only useful, they are also beautiful being made from antique barn wood from our own farm. The wood has been weathered and grooved over many many decades. The old farm house on our property was built in 1910 so we suspect that the old barns are atleast as old, making this wood nearly 100 years old!

The pattern for making them came from the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The houses can be directly screwed onto a post outdoors or a picture hanger can be attached for hanging in your home as decoration.

If you prefer to have the bottom protuding wood pieces cut so that the bird house can sit flat on a mantle or shelf, please let us know and we will be happy to cut that for you. These houses are available for purchase in my etsy shop at
