Purple Martin House Plans

We have included a few bird house plans over the past few years.  Most of them have been relatively simple as are most birdhouse plans (birdhouse plans)?  In fact, I find myself using a lot of my cut off, or scrap, lumber for birdhouse scale projects.

Just the other day, a reader requested a a plan for a Purple Martin House.  I actually found it kind of funny that we hadn’t included a Martin House Plan before.  I located a nice resource that provides a free purple martin house plan.  Enjoy.  This is the perfect addition to a property and a great project for all of your excess lumber from your summer projects.

Here is the cut diagram using 1 sheet of 4′ x 8′ x 3/8″ exterior grade plywood.

Click on the image for the complete plans. You will find the navigation for the steps to the plan on the top of each page.

      Joan, If you look at the PDF ( you will see the cutting diagram in the middle of the page. This plan calls for 1 sheet of 4′ x 8′ plywood.

      However, to fit it into your car, you could have it cut down to 3 sections. 2 would need to be 30″ wide (by the 48″ width of the sheet). The remainder is whatever the leftover is. If you look at the diagram (added to the post above), this should make sense.

      Home depot or Lowe’s should be able to make the 2 30″ cuts for you.

      Hope this helps.
