Reviews
12-room American Barn Purple Martin House is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 12.
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.
