Christine Jepsen's attention to detail in each and everything that she creates is her hallmark, and this Embellished Tiny House is no exception!
Each of her Bird Houses, Miniature Houses, and Faerie Doors begin as a plain wooden structure, many of which Chris and her husband John make by hand. After the foundation is lovingly constructed, the focal components of the house are secured. Then tiny rocks, sticks, and other forest treasures are cemented into place. Finally the details and finishing touches are added for a work of art that's truly one-of-a-kind original.
All of Chris' full sized bird houses, including this one, have two pegs under the roof line for easy removal of the top for cleaning or other uses.
Christine and John live on a farm in Vass North Carolina. They retired to the area after lifelong careers in law enforcement in Detroit Michigan. Her art began there as her collection of rocks and driftwood from the shore of Lake Huron grew exponentially and inspired her.
The pieces in Christine's collection are appropriate for display indoors or on a sheltered porch. If you'd prefer something for use in the elements outside, please contact us to discuss your situation.
Christine does accept a limited number of custom orders each year. Contact us early to request your house number, paint color, team flag, or the favorite iconic structure that means the most to you.
