Home Bazaar Main Street Colonial Cottage Purple Martin HouseInvite purple martins to become part of your neighborhood by placing the Home Bazaar Main Street Colonial Cottage Purple Martin House in your backyard. This ornate and generous shelter provides martins a wonderful roosting spot, while its lovely color scheme and traditional shape bring style and interest to your yard. The rectangular abode mimics a traditional house, complete with faux bay windows, shutters, and an imitation black door. The soft yellow color of the house adds a charming hint to your bird garden, while impressed lines throughout the unit evoke siding. White flower pots with fabric flowers flank the door, and a generous, shingled roof covers the unit. The black hue of the roof helps the interior of the home remain warm, while a chimney covered with river rock enhances the realism. The ten separate apartments provide shelter for several martin families, and each 2 diameter entry hole sports a square, white frame for added visibility and style. The eight lower apartments measure 5.5 high, 6 wide, and 5.25 deep each, while the two upper compartments are 6 deep, 10 wide, and 6.5 tall at their highest point for a bit of extra space. Ventilation gaps beneath the roof overhang help keep the internal temperature regulated, and the home may be unscrewed from the bottom platform for seasonal maintenance. Drainage holes in this base also help the nests remain dry, and this 16 by 14, rectangular platform allows you to display this structure on a level surface indoors or out. Add a mounting plate (not included) to place the home on a 4 x 4 wooden post (not included) for added style and placement options. The all plyboard and wood construction brings hardiness to the item, while its bright colors enhance your backyard. Offer martins an adorable home with this Main Street Colonial Cottage Purple Martin House.
Note: Climate and the elements will weather this house and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the home's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint) of this item, you should select a matte finish polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not alter the colors of the paints. You should expect that once left outside, the home will weather and require refinishing.
