Purple Martin House Plans
This multi-storied apartment house will attract a colony of martins. The houses should be situated in an open space and painted white to reflect heat.
How to Build A Martin House
Note that the plan calls for nailing a 3/4-inch strip onto the boards which are the ends of the house. This makes the 11 1/2-inch lumber the full 12 1/4 inches necessary to make the rooms 6 x 6 inches.
