Home Bazaar Town Hall Purple Martin House, 12 RoomProvide martins a comfortable place to congregate in your garden with the Home Bazaar Town Hall Purple Martin House. Reminiscent of New England meeting houses, this intricately detailed and superbly designed home will certainly make a statement in your bird garden. Its pitched roof and castle-like cupola capture attention, while four columns flank the front door and accent the detailed porch. Two faux windows above the door enhance the façade, and the red cedar shingles complete the elegant look. Six individual apartments on each side of the home provide spots for plenty of martin families, and their 2” diameter entrance holes offer easy passage. Brackets between each entry help divide the unit and decrease porch dominance disputes, while a perch in front of the apartments provides martins with resting spots. The vivid, white color not only lends a fresh look to this home, it also helps the item remain cool in the summer. A gap beneath the roof overhang also keeps its internal temperature regulated, and the unpainted interior ensures nestlings remain safe. Remove the back panel from this shelter for seasonal cleanouts and maintenance. Add a mounting bracket (not included) to the base of this item to place it on a pole, or display it inside your home as a striking adornment.
Using only the finest materials available with a painstaking attention to detail, this martin house is handcrafted of kiln-dried hardwood, exterior grade plyboard, and non-toxic oil-based exterior paint. The western red cedar shingles will naturally patina to a silvery grey color that will add character to the home, and should you ever lose a shingle, a small packet of replacements is included. With proper maintenance, this purple martin house will provide seasons of enjoyment for both you and your feathered friends. Offer martins a sanctuary in your garden with this Town Hall Purple Martin House.
Note: Climate and the elements will weather the home and change its appearance over time; however, weathering will add to the house's natural charm without compromising its function. Should you want to preserve the finish (paint), you should select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not turn the white paint yellow. You should expect that once left outside, the house will weather and require refinishing.
