The year 2009 was a decisive year for both of us (Andre and Karen). Our daughter, a naturalized U.S. citizen, has lived in the United States (U.S.) for five years, along with her husband and our two lovely granddaughters. The longing to be with them was too much for us. So, we moved from Germany to the U.S. that same year.
While in the process of obtaining permanent legal residency (which we obtained), we were attracted to the various species of birds and the multitude of tree woods located in the Pennsylvania area. Thanks to Andre’s love for wood, we came up with the idea of constructing birdhouses and began building them in our children’s garage. It was so much fun, and with the encouragement of both family and friends, what began as a hobby, later became the basis of our present business, “Unique Birdhouses.”
“Our unique birdhouses are made of local trees from Pennsylvania and the knowledge of German craftsmanship.”
The characteristics of the various woods and the variety of bird species enabled us to construct birdhouses of various shapes and designs. Each birdhouse is handcrafted and unique in style and each piece is produced with much love and detail. We want to offer our clientele a truly quality product that is unique and that will be cherished forever.
