Luxury Homes for Birds You Need To Own

Have you ever wondered if there are any Luxury Homes for Birds?

I did. Made a research and found some amazing designs for our little winged friends.

When you were a little child you used to built little houses with your dad for your little friends? It was a handmade ugly bird home created out of some wood scraps which you clumsily tried to hammer together, complete with bird feeder made of paper roll, right?

You thought that the little house you built is going to last years, all that until the first sign of bad weather when your construction fell apart.

It was a disappointment for you, and you said you will never try to built another home for the birds again.

Well, you might not have to. Because there is a guy who can do all that for you.

Tom Burke is the guy you need for that kind of business. He will build awesome homes for the birds unlike the ones you did when you were a kid.

The things that Burke is building can’t really be called birdhouses, because in reality they are more than just birdhouses, they are a luxurious environment for the birds.

They have to live in comfort as we do, right? Many of you might not agree with that which implies that you are not willing to spend thousands of dollar just to make that possible.

Here is the thing. While not many agree with spending that much money to build a birdhouse, some may disagree with that.

For example, Tom Burke who thinks that those little creatures need some place comfy to live in, designed and built replicas of real luxury mansions and estates.

You might say that Burke took the birdhouse game to a whole new level. It’s not like the birds know they are living in a luxury mansion or everything like that. No.

All they need is a place nice and dry. But that’s just my opinion. Let’s proceed with the story, then.

Once his work was promoted by some magazines, he got other job offers from different clients.

For example, a woman named Melody wrote him that she wished Tom to make her a shelter because her husband loved Tom’s work.

Then Tom found out that Melody was willing to pay up to $10,000 for a shelter because her husband wanted a house. The husband was no other that the creator of “Star Wars”, George Lucas.

Tom designed and built for them a 7-foot wide reproduction of Skywalker’s Ranch in Northern American state.

Pretty amazing, wasn’t it?

But all this had to start somewhere. Where did inspiration first stroke Tom?

When the inspiration came he was at the border towns of Delaware and Pennsylvania refurbishing some old barns.

His protects for the birds weigh as much as 500 pounds. Tom made the blueprints for the birdhouses by the homes he saw in “Architectural Design”. Among the homes presented there it was the Ralph Lauren’s Ranch Mansion.

But that wasn’t the only place he could get inspired from. No. He also found inspiration in a variety of places including a Louis Vuitton stiletto.

Among Tom’s projects we loved the skyline piece for the New Yorker which eventually was bought by his main patron, which in fact hates birds but loves the art.

But Burke’s miniatures are distinct from the original houses he takes inspiration from, in more ways than just size.

He doesn’t have to worry about the fact that replicas have to be the same, like other artists in his area of work.

Burke prefers the freedom to pass the differences between the original and the smaller version. He even uses scrap wood, garbage and dumpster finds to make this beautiful luxury homes for birds.

The way he is working and transforming ordinary birdhouses into luxurious pieces makes the homes more spectacular.

He worked two months to complete his dream and making a home that he hopes one day will be placed in the NYC’s Highline Park.
