Size: 18 Room House
I ordered a 4 story house. I put it together alone and had no problems understanding the instructions... Took a long time but I had fun with it! I did put on gloves, no biggie, the edges are sharp.
I bought it because it's inexpensive. You get what you pay for the better units are $400.00+. Would I buy it again, yes because that's what I can afford and all the inconveniences have to be dealt with. If you can afford a better one get one, but this is much better than none, I love the Martins.
The problems with this house are many.
1) You can clean it only by lifting the layers off and reaching inside thru the tops. You should not do this while the Martins are around. So I end up bringing it to the ground and using a shop vac in each hole that contains an unwanted nest. If there's a better way, I can't find it and have spent lots of time working with it.
2) The depth of the nests make it easy for predators to stick their heads in and pull out babies. I'm looking into using some welded wire for predator guards but the house looks beautiful as it is and I don't want to ruin the look. I'm rural and can shoot into the ground to scare off hawks, if I was in town and couldn't shoot, I'd have to get predator guards on right now.
3) The telescoping pole SUCKS big time, we made an offset winch system that was expensive and time consuming. Don't try it if you don't have welding equipment.
4)Maybe I'm dim but I can't find accessories for this unit. I'd like a hex perch for the top, predator guards and starling proof door kits. Can't find them anywhere. Also, my sparrow traps do not fit.

Neutral: It did take a few hours to assemble like everyone else has said - not that big of a deal - just do it while you watch TV.

Positive: It is a very attractive, modular design and it will no-doubt last for years to come. Made of no-rust aluminum and plastic. It does attract purple martins. It comes with hole plugs to close the house during the winter (this is important for martin housing). Drainage holes on the outside porch before entering the bird house.

Negative: I've had my house for 3 years now. When I first got it as a gift, I didn't really know what purple martins were. Since then, I've learned a bit about purple martins and martin housing. (1) They definitely prefer larger compartments (about 6"x12") and seem to nest in this house only after all the larger living quarters are taken. This house seems to attract the smaller, younger birds - possibly due to size - possibly due to the fact they arrive latest after all the premium homes are taken. They can lay 5 or more eggs and all birds need to fit in the same house. They like to be further away from the entrance in case of predators and to stay out of poor weather. (2) It's actually a bit of work to maintain a purple martin house - it's not like sticking up a house for robins or sparrows. You need to check the nests periodicaly, etc. So, your purple martin house should be easily accessible and easy to open to see the nests. This one is not. (3) MOST IMPORTANTLY: The newer designs have Starling Resistant Entry Holes ("SREH"). These are smaller, crescent-shaped holes which are difficult for the European Starlings to enter. If you read up on purple martins, you'll see how important this is.

This appears to be the same house as sold by Sears over 30 years ago. Had it with me while in the air force. Very popular with Martins. Enjoyed their company and melodious chatter for many years while stationed from Florida to North Dakota. For best results you should live within a half mile or so of a body of water and have a fairly open yard. Assembly is a piece of cake. (ever put together an steel storage shed?) Good quality. Light weight. Cool for the birds. This hobby is not set up and forget. Like a home aquarium, you have to learn to maintain it properly, treat your quests with love and respect and they'll come back year after year. Interesting, they do seem to enjoy your company just as much as you do theirs. Highly recommended.

I did not see anywhere on the box where assembly was required. The house is made up of about 72 seperate sections you put together with hundred of tiny nuts and bolts in tight corners. Can you say Erector set? Of course, they include three warnings that all the metal pieces are sharp and they are, so be careful! I sat in front of the television watching the football game while assembling. Directions were ok, but could have been much better. I did have to backtrack and fix some things before getting into a rythmn and doing it on my own. Definitely not for someone that might have a hard time with assembly.

I bought this house because I really like the way it looks and I think it will remain in tack for many years. You can start off with 6 apartments and expand all the way to 24 as your colony grows. I must warn you that if you dislike assembling things, have a drink before starting. It's actually not difficult; it just requires a lot of patience and attention to the instructions (if you can call it that). The instructions are a bit vague for both the house and pole assembly, but if you're accustomed to putting things together, you'll be fine. The roof of the house was the most difficult. The screws for the roof should have been a bit longer to make it easier to get the nuts started. I was able to assemble the house without any help in 2 hours. The notches on the porch rails could have been a bit longer as well. I was able to assemble the house cut and scratch free. The house really doesn't have any place to attach a perch, so I drilled a 5/16 inch hole through the white piece of plastic on top of the cupola. I then stuck a 4 foot dowel through the hole for a perfect perch. The pole certainly isn't worth it's price and the not so Easy Key Lock can be difficult, but a hammer fixed that.... The last thing I did was install a little bracket on the pole at the bottom of the house. This provides added security to prevent the house from sliding down the pole. All in All, I can't stop looking my new house.
