WINCHESTER CATHEDRAL WINCHESTER CATHEDRAL
The project is symbolic of a place of worship. Hands pressed together, fingers pointed upwards to the heavens, as if in Prayer. The title comes from the #1 hit song of the sixties by the same name. Can you hum the melody? But there is another Story in Southern folk-lore that tells a different story. Read the story behind the story in the main text. But in any case, this birdhouse should prove to be a very interesting birdhouse to discuss with your family and friends as well as providing a comfortable nesting place for your back-yard feathered friends.

CINDERELLA CASTLE CINDERELLA CASTLE
This project is the result of things learned from building the proto-type study of the Hexagon birdhouse. Its design is based on three hexagon modules, each sized in height and entry diameter according to the requirements of specific bird species. Its design could attract as many as a dozen different species of birds, from Blue Birds and Purple Martins, to Downy Woodpeckers.
Its design is inspired by French, Italian, and Swiss Palaces of the 18th century, and particularly by the Cinderella Castle at Disney Land in Central Florida. It has been modified to meet the needs of different birds, yet maintains a uniform scale, variation, and texture worthy to be called a piece of Art Work. It should be a very interesting and attractive structure on any patio or garden area.

THE HEXAGON THE HEXAGON
This project is a proto-type study of possible applications of the geometric shape of a Hexagon, to determine design limitations as well as to determine construction techniques. It also explores different methods of mounting the bird house, whether on a garden or patio wall, wood post, or on trellis framing, or hanging from a tree limb or trellis. The proto-type was also helpful to study the methods of ventilation and drainage. The final design is suitable for medium size birds. As with any of my bird houses, the size of the main structure, the opening and height from the floor are laid out based on documented data from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services and other sources. These dimensions will vary depending on the species of birds one is looking to attract. In any case, this proto-type bird house is designed to attract at least six different species of birds.

THE URN THE URN - A BIRD FEEDER
During the winter, birds are more interested in finding food than places to raise their young. So, I thought I would change from designing Bird Houses, and try to design a Bird Feeder to address these special needs during the Holidays ahead. The URN is such a design. It is based on a Hexagon. Two hexagonal shapes put together in this manner make a very beautiful piece of Art Work as well as a functional Bird Feeder. It is a very strong and stable structure and above all, the birds love it. An URN Bird Feeder could be a valuable addition to your backyard patio or garden areas and is bound to stimulate interesting conversations between you and your family, friends, and guests, as well as providing essential food for your neighborhood feathered friends during the winter months ahead.

MOUNTAIN CABIN MOUNTAIN CABIN
The design of this model is based on a multitude of cabins built in the high backcountry mountains of Colorado, Montana, and Alaska. These beautiful little cabins were simple, utilitarian structures built in harmony with its environment while protecting and preserving its wildlife and natural resources. Although similar to the "Waterwheel Cabin", it is quite different and features two separate compartments, one for larger birds, and the other for smaller birds. It also adds a stone chimney and red front door. This design will be a valuable addition to your backyard patio or garden areas and is bound to stimulate interesting conversations with your family, friends, and guests.

The Octagon House The Octagon House
This design is full of historical Symbolism. What does an Octagon symbol mean? What does a circle Symbol mean? What does a "Pineapple" symbol represent? A witch’s hat? All of the meanings of these symbols are explained in the main text description of this project and are all wrapped up into the design of the project, which makes it rather unique and interesting. One of a kind. Click on the photo to find out. Click on each of the project photos to see a full screen view of the "Octagon House".

Summer Cottage Summer Cottage
This contemporary design is based on a real cottage designed by the Artist, Architect, and built as a Weekend Fishing retreat on the shores of Lake Okeechobee, Florida more than 40 years ago. This Award winning design has endured the test of time and is still being used as fun place to hang-out and fish during weekends. The birdhouse model is a recreation of the original design and modified to attract certain species of birds in the South Florida area. It can easily be modified to attract birds in any geographical area of North America, or any other geographical area of the World.

Queen–Anne Model Queen–Anne Model
The design for this model is based, in part, on the historical styles of Classic Revival Architecture found in San Francisco, California during the mid to late 19th Century. The period produced outstanding examples of Greek, Italianate, Victorian, and the Queen-Anne style, among others. Of these beautiful structures, the various towers and turrets associated with these examples inspired the eclectic design of this model.

Waterwheel Cabin Waterwheel Cabin
The design of this model is based on a multitude of cabins built in the high backcountry mountains of Colorado, Montana, and Alaska. These beautiful little cabins were simple, utilitarian structures built in harmony with its environment while protecting and preserving its wildlife and natural resources. Many of these quaint cabins took advantage of its natural resources by building on the edge of a mountain stream and incorporating a "waterwheel" into the structure to improve human comfort, such as providing electricity. This feature inspired the eclectic design of this model.
