Reviews
12 - room American Barn Purple Martin House is rated 3.7273 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too small...entry doors too small. Resident birds rejected it. A very poor buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is not a bad Martin house, but the instructions on how to assemble the house are terrible. I was also disappointed to find there's a big hole in the top of the house that's for use if you buy the additional pole that's offered. There's no easy way to mount the house to a pole that doesn't use a rope lift assembly, which I guess also has to be purchased. I will find a way to rig a cover over the hole, and someway to attach a pole I already have. The details on the website are misleading.

Good Directions Ultimate Martin Bird House. A multi-family dwelling for them, a pleasant and gratifying hobby for you.

We can trace the Purple Martin's association with man to the days when Native Americans hung gourds out for them. People later started erecting wooden, multi-compartment units in hopes of attracting these slender, high-flying birds. Today, Martins east of the Rockies are virtually dependent on man for nesting sites. And that's fine with us... few things are more soothing than watching the aerial acrobatics of these delightful, chattering birds. Make sure you do things right by setting up this Ultimate Martin Bird House from Good Directions, devoted to enhancing the home with affordable, uniquely crafted products that reflect your style and personality.

Be a responsible landlord:
  • Base constructed of maintenance-free solid cellular vinyl, a wood alternative, with finger joints on the corners
  • Roof is blue verdi copper
  • Divided into 24 compartments
  • Top comes off for easy cleaning
  • Includes 4 decorative brackets and metal plate for mounting on post
  • Measures 26 3/8 x 44"
  • Made in USA.
