Customer Questions & Answers

Does this fit on round pole or the triangle pole?

Asked by: mike
NO, after talking to and researching this house (see my review on this site), only ONE POLE S&K sells fits this house and a few other houses sold by Home Depot (S&K brand). I spoke to a Home Depot agent and she has put in a ticket for several issues with this website: 1. Wrong picture 2. Product does not clearly state one ONLY pole fits this, sold by S&K.

How are the attic dividers supposed to fit when the roof is put on?

I put together just as the instructions said but when I put the roof on it bent the dividers so I had to remove them.

American Barn Purple Martin House is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3 stars Pros: Inexpensive, lightweight, made of corrugated plastic panels, sturdy once assembled.... 3 stars Pros: Inexpensive, lightweight, made of corrugated plastic panels, sturdy once assembled. Cons: Instructions could be better ,impossible to reassemble if a mistake is made,, pictured with top hanger which is essential but not included unless you buy their pole. Perches are very cheap and break when being inserted. If you are handy you can fashion your own top piece out of steel roof flashing avail. at H.D. I also made a 16 ft pole from 2 8ft. press.. treated 2x2 s joined together w/ angle iron I got at H..D. as well. The nesting areas are too small so I closed off the back room of each nesting box to allow for a front room and a back room for the nestlings to prevent predation by hawks. We have resident redtails that predate the local nests. After making the necessary modifications and making my own pole, pulley and top piece it is a passable purple martin nesting box that I can easily raise and lower and will accommodate 6 nesting pairs. There are better alternatives but they are much more expensive. It does not come with the TV ant.'s pictured either but I mounted P.M. decoys in the holes on the roof which I like better.

The picture on the Home Depot site is NOT what S&K ships out to the customer! 2. The house only has "4" (four) perches on one side, no perches or holes on top. 3. This product uses "ONLY" the one pole listed in the description. 4. EXTREMELY poor construction, kits only worth $20-$25 dollars, if even that much. My granddaughters Barbie Doll house is of better construction! 5. The pole and house are NOT shipped together (as you might think)

Go to You-tube, video has no sound. The plastic cardboard dividers are not substantial and lack strength. The cupola on top is not furnished, comes extra with the mounting pole. If you assemble the house with only parts supplied, you are left with a house with a hole in the roof. I had to order another roof without a hole. t

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be Carefull when buying this house.... S&K is a good company. But they made a huge mistake with this house. The Dark roof turns this house into a little oven when temps hit mid 90's or so. Martin chicks typically will survive temps of 105 and less. The dark roof does not reflect heat and chick losses are common when highs hit 95+, especially in the roof compartments. Good Features: Larger compartments (nice) SREH entrance holes (nice) I would only recommend this house in areas where summertime highs stay 90 or less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from purple martin house-no more mosquitos read the instructions twice....lay out all the pieces so they match each step.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad for the money The assembly was not near as hard as I anticipated. The inner room dividers are made of a corregated plastic that resembles cardboard but it is not. I would expect that this light weight strong material is about as good as you can get to cut down on the weight. I would think that the plastic will hold up to the weather so much better than the wooden houses I've had in the past and much cooler for the martins than the aluminum constructed houses. I'm pretty happy with it overall. Porch dividers would have been a nice touch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It looks like a real birdhouse, We were disappointed that this big birdhouse was constructed of cardboard, plastic coated ,but still cardbard. I am afraid to anticipate putting it outside, Wish us luck!
