A-Frame Bird Houses

A-Frame Bird Houses

A-frame bird houses are appropriately named for a type of design that is shaped like the letter "A." The two basic sides of the roof are connected at the top by a roof ridge, and then slope downward on both sides at an angle all the way to the ground. Basically, the overall shape forms a triangle and is recognized as a classic "A Frame."

Traditional "A-Framed" Shape & Style

This particular model is designed to look like a traditional A-frame structure for birds. The traditional a-frame shape is very recognizable because of its overall "A shape" from the top to the bottom. However, we've added a few extra features that make it stand out a bit. This unique approach to the a-frame decor includes a horizontal landing perch, contoured patio, wood rails, seated chimney, offset shingles, roof ridge and custom rear window. Viewing the baby birds is easy through a rear viewing door with two swivel hinges.

Hand-crafted A-Frame Birdhouses

Our A-frame's are built by hand with special emphasis placed on all of the unique details. The construction process is slow and takes about 21 days.


Cedar and pine are types of wood found in the natural environment of wild birds. The sections are held together with industrial strength wood glue (Titebond II) and reinforced with long screw fasteners.


  • Height: 15.5"
  • Width: 12"
  • Depth: 10.5"
  • Hole entrance: 1 1/4"
  • Floor: 5" x 7"


The interior floor dimensions are wide enough to accommodate mother birds that lay large clutches of eggs.


There are 3 available mounting options for A-frame houses.

  • Sitting models are intended to sit on an outdoor shelf or table.
  • Hanging models come with two i-hooks installed that are used to securely hang the birdhouse from a tree branch.
  • Pole mounted models come with the mounting base and extension already attached and requires no assembly. The pole mount extension attaches easily to a metal pole with a 1" inch diameter.
Horizontal Perch

The Original "Horizontal Perch"

We've designed a unique landing system with a perch attached horizontally to a support arm. The complete design also includes a patio with rails, and together form what we've named the original "Horizontal Perch."

Although consumers are always searching for new ideas, they still continue to appreciate familiar shapes of outdoor decor. The traditional shape of the letter "A" has heavily influenced birdhouse manufacturers around the world as well, as you will see the same "A shape" style but with varying adornments. Our particular style includes detailed accessories that make them different and perhaps something you'll want to purchase as a special gift.

History - The "Second Everything" Era

While A-frame structures have existed for centuries, they were only recognized as an alternative style by U.S. home builders in recent decades. A-frame architecture in residential sectors were influenced by the significant rise of incomes and available materials during and after World War II. Construction of new highways, including Interstates into National Parks such as the Rockies and Sierra Nevadas, as well as the creation of new dams, lakes, shorelines and reservoirs across the country, opened up wilderness areas for what became known as the "second everything" era. Along with efforts by the The U.S. Federal Government, the urban sprawl created more room for a large percentage of American residents to re-locate to rural areas and live inside the awe-inspiring "A-shaped" home. Today, they continue to inspire and serve as a symbol of an era when casual living was in style, and not just for homes, but also for vacation homes, churches, hotels, restaurants, mountain lodges and recreation centers.


Since the A-frame upswing, toy makers have been influenced also, as miniature A-frame replicas and toys have appeared in toy stores and gift shops across America. The architectural distinction is undeniable, even among children who enjoy playing with birdhouses, dollhouses, caricatures, and other similar toys.
