Very easy to assemble and hopefully will attract some martins this season

I am replacing 4 that have lasted me 10 years. It is a very good product and my birds love them.

Great birdhouse. Very decorative. I did not mount it on a telescoping mast as it was hopefully going to be a useful decoration for another project. But, the mount for their triangular telescoping post was plain to see and instructions were clear on how to use it.... The house looks beautiful and I will be able to reach it with a ladder... It was easy to put together and a welcome addition to our backyard's decor. Someday maybe it will attract some tenants. Only real downside is that I wanted to double the living spaces for each nest (anc cut room number in half), but I don't think the instructions were as clear on that as they could have been... Otherwise, a great little project that only took an hour or so to build. I added black sharpie to highlight the "shutters" and other window treatments on the nest openings. Very happy with this purchase.

Your product is amazing! My husband and I love our new purple martin house! It looks wonderful in our yard, and the martins have already been scouting it out.

I really like this box. We had an older wooden one. The Martins are here and in the box.

Most excellent - it is a sight to behold on its lofty perch, in the back yard.

We gave it to our daughter in New England. She was astonished and delighted, and it is already home for her friends!

It looks great out in our huge backyard. Now just waiting for the Purple Martin families to show up.

This is a pretty house that goes together easily. We had an existing round pole and just added a wood base underneath with bolts and worked beautifully. Only had to shave off the protruding triangle base. I would recommend this product to a friend.

Much larger than I had anticipated. Appears easy to clean out.

It is a beautiful design and the Martins came but the fasteners that hold it together are awful they do not stay in I had to duct tape mine to keep roof in. A little disappointed
