Purple Martin House 12 room

"I would only recommend this product to a friend with problem solving skills. The directions were inadequate with no information on attaching the second story. The door covers keep popping out as do the railings/perches around the perimeter. I wired the perches in place with florists wire and duct taped the covers in place. The housing compartments are smaller than I anticipated because of the framework to hold the center pole in place. The house looks nice and is quite sturdy but the birds prefer the big Bo gourds. As my colony grows, I will add more gourds. For the money, I expected better instructions and a tighter fit for the door covers and railings."

Looks better than it functions

"Our first Martin House and WOW.... We loved it at first. The good, all aluminum... The bad, tough to check on nests without time and effort, not to mention the extended time disturbing the home. The nest boxes are small and offer limited protection from predators. This product required a round pole and it was easy to move the house into another direction by accident. We read that Martins know which nest belongs to them based on the location of the opening, and the opening could not be moved. We have not confirmed or deined this claim. <smile>
To be fair, this product is "Fair"
Would encourage use of gourds for ease of care and increased attraction of Martins."

Heath Deluxe Purple Martin House

"I have searched for a Martin House for some time now. Recently ordered the Heath Deluxe Purple Martin House and am very satisfied with it. It is larger than I expected and quite easy to assemble. It, also, was more reasonably priced than most houses I researched. It looks great in our yard and the Martins are enjoying it."
