Welcome to KoolBird – home of custom-built bird houses with contemporary designs and mid-modern elements.  Through quality craftmanship and the best materials, we offer one-of-a-kind products you will be sure to love! 


Mark Ellis, owner and craftsman, worked for a furniture manufacturer before pursuing bird house building. The furniture Ellis made was focused around midcentury, modern furniture. His previous work reflects these sleek, sharp, and complementary elements seen in his bird houses.

Based on the 1950s interior designs, Ellis has integrated these elements into bird houses. As this type of style has re-introduced itself into the architecture market, Ellis’s bird houses have been seen in some instances as a reflection of the houses themselves. Regardless of the architectural style of the house, Ellis’ bird houses have the style that complements the exterior design of any home based on the uniqueness and professionalism with a retro design.

Mid-Modern Style

Birdhouses are Eco-Friendly. The tropical hardwoods used are scraps from tropical hardwood floor manufactures. All glues and finishes are water based.  All birdhouses can be used in outdoor environments.
