Ralph Giebelhaus at Home Tweet Home took up woodworking in 2017 to fill some free time while undergoing cancer treatments. Shortly after investing in two saws and compressor, he built his first birdhouse – a simple structure he decorated with stones he collected from his front yard. Since then his process has evolved. Ralph – who is now cancer free – takes hikes throughout southern Alberta gathering stones, calcified mushrooms, driftwood, cattails, and other natural components to give his houses their trademark natural aesthetic.

​Ralph scorches the plywood base and cedar roof before decorating them with his foraged find. He says he doesn’t tend to preplan the look of the exterior design, so each birdhouse turns out entirely one-of-a-kind.
