The Dune Shack Series is inspired by the experience of being a bluebird nest-box monitor for many years.

Most of the materials in this series are reclaimed and formerly functioned as something else, for example, wire mesh from lobster traps becomes the windows, drift fencing becomes the siding, lobster buoy dowels become chimney stacks, and bottles become sea glass, and then become window glass on the boxes. The nest boxes are custom designed for bluebirds and meet all the criteria for that species.
