THE STORY – HISTORY
During many visits to San Francisco California over the years, Mr. Morris was impressed and intrigued by the various historical districts of this great city. In particular, he was impressed with the areas in and around Russian Hill and Hyde Park areas that include more than 100 years of history on one street alone. Greek Revival, Colonial Revival, Italianate Style, Queen–Anne Revival, and Victorian Gothic, and other Styles of architecture always stood out in magnificent examples of private homes, row–houses, or townhouse apartments often built, side–by during the mid and late 1800's.

Of these styles, Mr. Morris was intrigued with the varying designs of the towers and turrets of these wonderful historical examples of "Classic Revival" architecture. Examples of the "Queen–Anne Revival" style, circa 1850–1890, and particularly its associated towers inspired the eclectic design of this Birdhouse model. Mr. Morris combines various elements from key components of several towers and turrets into a single formal, uniform, and original design that seems to capture the essence of the Queen–Anne Style of Architecture in San Francisco, with a little touch of Italianate and Victorian styles mixed in.

THE DESIGN
This sculptured birdhouse is designed around the essence of the Queen–Anne Style of San Francisco. Its dimensions are adapted in such a way as to attract several bird species which will likely select it as a place for nesting and raising its young. Not only is it designed to attract several bird species, it is designed to be an attractive and beautiful Work of Art for humans to admire. This sculptured bird house will be a valuable addition to your backyard patio or garden area and an interesting conversation piece to talk about with your family, friends, and guests.

Each Birdhouse is custom designed, based on specific species of birds living in your area that are most likely to be attracted by its presence in your patio or garden area. Therefore, with each order, the final dimensions will be custom built to the sizes and dimensions required by species in your geographical location.
