Start your own purple martin colony with the PMC-24 Purple Martin Castle Safety System which is a complete purple martin house system.  The house is made of durable yet lightweight aluminum which helps to dissipate heat and maintain a comfortable temperature for the birds.  The aluminum also being lighter than wood or gourd systems is easy to raise and lower on the sturdy pole with winch and cable system. House stops instantly on post if winch handle slips out of your hand. Features individual doors to allow access to each compartment, guard rails to prevent nestling fall-out, roof perch provides additional perching for purple martins, and safety handle on pole to stop house at desired height.
Includes: 24-compartment, six-sided house, winch and cable apparatus, winter door stops, dri-nest subfloors, mounting post and ground post socket. Kit form with easy to follow instructions. System ships in two cartons. EASILY CONVERTS INTO ENLARGED COMPARTMENTS

For the overall health of the colony we'd suggest enlarging the compartments by closing each alternating compartment and opening the wall in between to make 12 larger compartments.  This will increase the amounts of eggs laid by your purple martins and decrease predation from Owls and other predators.  Also to prevent starlings from overtaking the house, consider changing the doors to SREH doors
