About Us

Authentically Austin

5 birds is committed to providing bespoke homes that tell the story of Austin’s history while being well appointed, stylish and historically authentic. 5 birds carefully selects homes that have a historic quality and often chooses homes that would benefit from significant restoration work.

Once the homes are restored, they are well appointed, with much of the interiors coming from local Austin vendors. 5 birds strives to balance historic restoration with updated interiors that reflect a calling for 21st century conveniences and comforts.

Once complete, the homes are rented on a longer term basis to those wishing to have an authentic Austin experience.


5 Birds Dwellings is a proud to be a recipient of a Stewardship Award from the 2023 Preservation Merit Awards organized by Preservation Austin.

Special Thanks

Beyond my family and friends, who have been incredibly supportive of my work, I want to thank the following persons and companies.  Each of these made space during the pandemic in what were very full schedules to support me in my work in ways big and small due to their belief in the idea of preserving historic homes in Austin and telling Austin’s story through its homes and communities.
