Welcome to BEN, our Backyard EcoNest - a nest within reach.

Our stock BEN designs include: the Hummingbird, the Dove, and the Jay. Call EcoNest for pricing.

The Hummingbird

The Hummingbird is our smallest backyard nest at just over 100 sf. This EcoNest is a timber frame featuring cork wall panels and natural sheep's wool roof insulation. The entire structure is prefabricated in our workshop and assembled onsite.

We built our BEN prototype in the workshop, assembled it in a temporary location, disassembled it, and reassembled it in its permanent home.

The Jay

The Jay is an innovative nest consisting of a hybrid wall system with pre-dried mass walls with pumice and lime. With the potential for a sleeping loft, this little nest provides maximum efficiency for small home living. The timber frame and walls can be produced off site in a workshop and then transported and assembled quickly onsite.

The Dove

The Dove features maximum efficiency in small-home living. This beautiful nest features ample storage and luxurious living spaces, creating a small home with a big home feel.
