That looks wonderful, Huggybear. What are the sections on the base? Are the just for extra support? Love the all white look. Is this the first one you have made? Hope you will share a pic when the birdies find it and move in. Luvs

Beautiful job! Iam sure the martins will love it, just a question why are the martins house always painted white? seems thats the only color I see, as you can tell I dont know much about birds.

RE: Here is my new Purple Martin birdhouse

Oddie I am not sure why they are always white.. but all that I have ever seen have been painted white.. so I did mine that way too, I did not make this one.. a father of one of my son's friends did and the little spaces in front of each hole is for the babies to stand in while they are getting their flying wings.. so to speak.. LOL.. I will try to get pics of the Purple Martins once they arrive.. gosh, I guess I will have to have room service for them and turn down their beds. and so forth.. LOL
