Stuck in Vermont: Building Birdhouses With Steve Hadeka of Pleasant Ranch

Episode 574

by

Steve Hadeka has always had a thing for working with wood and, in 2012, he built his first midcentury modern birdhouse and started his business, Pleasant Ranch. A few years later, Steve began selling his wooden creations at the BCA Artist Market: cutting boards, plant holders, bottle openers shaped like Vermont and, of course, birdhouses. In 2018, Steve opened a shop on Winooski's Canal Street. We visited him there to talk birdhouses, drumming, spoons and art.

You can see Steve's work at Penny Cluse Café for the month of May and attend the opening for his exhibition "Riffing on the Modern Birdhouse" on May 2 between 6 and 8 p.m. You can hear Steve play with the new band Matthew Mercury at Waking Windows on May 5 at 5pm on the Rotary Stage.
