Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Over the years, I''margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt''margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt''t really happy with the design.  The house design was very basic and didn''t know how to tell someone else to make the changes to do it themselves, so I decided to sit down and design a set of house plans myself.  Since all martin houses are basically boxes with compartments in them, it was just a matter of doing the numbers for a 2 story house with compartments that meet the latest standards and then designing in some structure so that it allowed the front face to open up for access.  However; these are not just another set of house plans.  I decided to add in the option of allowing for the house to fit over a round steel pole and thus, allow the house to easily be raised and lowered for nest checks and house maintenance.

 

Since man was introduced to the purple martin, they''t incorporated into many of the designs available, either.

 

Unfortunately, as of late, two major pest bird species, the European Starling and the English House Sparrow invaded America and, having the same nesting requirements as purple martins, soon took over any available housing and actually eliminated the nesting of martins, the very bird the house was built for.  The landlord, not knowing any better, allowed them to live in the house and in so doing, put any martins that might have moved in under much stress and peril, if they stayed at all.

 

However, in recent years, education about the purple martin has increased greatly and we now know much more about this beautiful bird species and its habits.  We''s have incorporated the SREH entrances to keep at least the starlings out of their houses.

  The house-

As with any martin house, it’s painted white with a trim of a different color.  The color here matches the trim of our own house, but of course it can be painted any color you like.  There is a space above the nesting compartments that allows for air to flow through the house thus helping cool the attic.

And, since we have Great Horned Owls in the area...  Owls can be a very destructive bird and I designed a set of for 1 last update 2020/06/05 guardsguards right into the house design to keep them at bay.

 

If you would like to build this house, the complete set of plans along with the instruction sheets are available. (See below)

Please note:

If you’re interested in using the exact same safety brackets and pulley that I use, I have made them available again.  Simply click on the “Pulley Kit” link in the ‘Contents’ section of my page and everything on how to get them is there.  I have them professionally made.  A little expensive, yes; but the quality is there and they will last a lifetime. 

Also note, these are made to fit the pole called out in the plans and will not fit any other size pole.

However; the plans I send give details of how to make the pulley and brackets if you prefer to make your own.
