The Buskas Bungalow
The reason is simple, after several years of conducting temperature tests on all type of houses and gourds, I learned the wooden houses hold far more heat through out our cool or sometimes cold evenings. In fact up to 6 or 8 C degrees more. In western Canada we need all the heat we can get during the night. The metal houses and gourds cooled down immediately after sunset, which is why the Martins like the cooler gourds in the southern USA.
The North Star houses and the Buskas Bungalows make a great combination, offering the Martins a variety of housing styles at my colony site. The nest trays are interchangeable with the North Star houses, which makes management quick and easy for me the landlord.
For a great winter project, I have a complete set of plans available for the Bungalows, The plans are in a 10 page booklet, which includes the cutting instructions, dimensions and pictures on the assembly of the Bungalow and nest tray. Also included are instructions on how to build the 16 ' x 2 1/2 " square steel pole, winch and hanger assembly.
To order them, simply send a personal check to me for $20.00 along with your return address. I will mail them to you, please allow 2 weeks for delivery.
