GlenLakes Resident Homes
Cedar Blue Bird House - $15 Donation
Mounted Cedar Blue Bird House - $30 Donation
(Installed on 6 foot Treated 4” x 4” post in your back yard)
All proceeds from the sale of Blue Bird houses or house with post will go toward GlenLakes Development Improvements (American flags, Game Park, Osprey Camera, Flowers, etc.) Additional donations will be appreciated. Blue Bird house requests will be filled in the order received by e-mail.
These houses will be built for GlenLakes residents for their back yards, give them out as gifts or to friends outside of GlenLakes. Since many of the old 272 boxes on the Golf Course have been destroyed or damaged beyond repair these will give blue birds a new home for nesting in your own back yard.
History of Blue Bird houses in GlenLakes.
In July of 2007, Cynthia (mail delivery lady) asked me if I could build some blue bird houses since the blue birds were building nests under the mail boxes in the paper boxes. I started building them with the help of Ed Hewitt. Past GM (Tim Cahill) at GlenLakes Golf Course gave permission for us to install them on any tree around the 27 holes of the Golf Course. I received donations of $10 for each box. After about two months we had put up, built and installed 272 Blue Bird houses on the three courses.
Over the last 9 years it has been a nightmare keeping them repaired. When we put them out we did not realize they were going to have a lifetime warranty. Resident Bruce Timperley had been repairing houses all over the GlenLakes Golf Course for the last several years and has nearly replaced all of the houses on the Lakes nine hole Course.
Anyone wishing to volunteer to help build the houses can call Jerry DuBose at 251-978-3069 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
We need to install the houses as soon as possible because with the warm weather it will not take long for them to start nesting for 2017!
