At some point near the middle of March, I always decide that I’m “done” with winter.

All of our lighted wooden primitive houses and wooden saltbox houses are handmade, hand painted and then sanded for a genuine rustic look. They are all sealed with a clear matte finish to protect their colors for years to come. Each wooden house has doors and windows cut out and wire in the window openings. Most of our houses come with a primitive rusty star attached to the roof. All of our lighted saltbox houses are stained inside and on the back.
