S & K 16 Family Purple Martin House Barn BN-16

Product Review (submitted on April 22, 2013):

I put the birdhouse together in about 1/2 hour. Instructions were very good and clear. It looks great in place (about 20' up).

Only a couple of caveats:
+ the white plastic perches are rather flimsy and don't "lock in" to the structure very well. The side perches are supposed to snap into grooves under the floors, but they pop out easily and you can't relocate them without opening up the house. I had to drill some small holes to get the "TV antenna" perches to lock in. No big deal though
+ a bigger issue was the odd triangular hole for mounting on a pole. I didn't want to buy a new pole, the old one I have is perfectly sound, but the birdhouse would not fit onto the round pole. I ended up having to craft a triangular wooden dowel to fit into the bird house with a circular lower end fitting into the pole. Only took a few minutes with an electric plane but still.

Overall I like it and have scored accordingly.
