Our Nest Box Story
This chapter of our life started on 20th December 2019 when the Cudlee Creek Bushfire burnt through our property (our home was thankfully saved). The trail of devastation from this fire was huge with over 25,000 hectares burnt. On our property alone we lost multiple big old gumtrees.
During the clean up it was quite evident that not only were a lot of homes for wildlife lost, but sadly a lot of wildlife was lost. From that point we felt we needed to do our part to help the wildlife recover.
While nesting boxes were on our list we hadn't managed to get anything sorted during the busy hustle and bustle of life. Fast forward to late March 2020 and the shut down of events due to Covid-19 happened. As our main business up to this point was supplying Audio Visual services to weddings, corporate functions and other community events, we stopped trading within the space of a week or so.
While working out what we might be able to do for the next 6 plus months, we started looking at re-purposing or up-cycling anything we already had to be able to create some income. One item we turned to was a CNC router bench we had quite recently installed for manufacturing our custom designed signage for events.
Putting these two acts of mother nature together has led us to where we are now, designing and manufacturing the best quality nesting boxes on the market.
