    I am thinking of building a Purple Martin House - we have the perfect place for them with alot of wide open fields. There were alot of Purple martins looking for nesting sites at our place this summer.
    Anyone have any experience building a 2 or 3 story condo?
    Any hints on how to make a pole that will allow me to lower the house for cleaning and housekeeping?

    Any helpful comments and suggestions are welcome

    Sorry...not much help here. My neighbors have lots, but they're purchased. My mother-in-law was gifted a bird feeder once that was mounted on an inverted L-shaped pole and was equipped with a pulley system to raise and lower it. Don't see why that wouldn't work for a martin house.
