Purple Martin House 12 Hole "Red Theme"



Shipping to United States: $45.00
  • Details
    This is our purple martin bird house made with strict specifications from Cornell Lab of Ornithology(Study of Birds) including starling resistant entry holes(which are hand cut versus the normal drilled round hole) that only purple martins can access. This is made by hand by veterans from prime cedar wood and built for superior ventilation and years of service. Most bird houses are not vented properly so when the hot weather comes the birds leave their nest and the babies do not survive. There are twelve nesting compartments and rails in front for easy access/prevent babies from falling out and also a rail on top when young are older and space becomes an issue. It is designed to be mounted on a metal pole or wood post and all front panels are designed and hinged to open for easy cleaning in the fall in preparation for next year. It measures 17 inches high, 20 inches wide and 19 inches long. Each compartment averages 6 inches wide, 7 inches deep and 5.75 inches high. We make them in natural cedar with a clear seal or painted(outside only) with transparent acrylic bird friendly stain. The weight is 29 pounds so we use Fedex Ground for shipping unless you need it in a hurry and then you can choose upgraded shipping at checkout. Unfortunately shipping rates have doubled and current cost is $78.00 so we pay about half the cost. So many customers ask how to mount it, here is a link that will show how we suggest you do it

    +Made with 7/8 inch red cedar for best insulation from heat for the birds
    +Stained with acrylic to avoid fumes and smells affecting the birds
    +Fold down fronts with rust proof hinges and stainless steel clasps for easy cleaning
    +Each house is made completely by hand from full boards of wood, hand cut, stained or painted, assembled with stainless steel screws (no staples to come loose or rust), routered edges, sanded and glued for years of maintenance free service. Each house takes approximately 22 hours of actual work to complete.
    + We include instructions for mounting and location for the best luck of having purple martins in your yard.
    + Base and pole not included but if you go on our website and click on gallery we give ideas on how best to mount.

    This is an awesome shop of people who love what they do. The craftsmanship is so beautiful. My residents are just excited that it arrived. And our maintenance man is busy building a pole for us. Thank you so much!!

    Very well made and well worth the wait. Thank you!!!

    We love this birdhouse! It's very well made with lots of attention to detail. We can't wait to get it mounted.

    I received my purple Martin house from Rodney and it’s absolutely beautiful!! The quality was so nice and was just as described. It’ll be so easy to clean out in the fall after the birds have left. I can’t wait to put it up in the spring! I had to contact Rodney after I received the bird house and he was so good about getting back to me, very easy to deal with and so helpful. If you’re thinking about getting this bird house you won’t be disappointed!! Thank you Rodney and to the rest of you. I’m very happy with my purchase.
