A New BH In Tamparuli, Sabah !!!

While on the way back from Kundangsan to KK, Mr Tan took a detour to view a newly built BH on the sloop of Tamparuli.

Tamparuli is a small township surrounded by valleys and hills. I classify it as the foothill of Mount Kinabalu.

Most of these hills are covered with forest plus some turning into durian orchards.

This particular BH was off the main tar road and you need to drive above 5 minutes on dirt road before reaching the house.

A three stories but strangely it has two entrance holes.

One facing the sea and the other facing the opposite.

I wonder what will happened when those high wind blows during the monsoon season. I am very sure those high wind will enter one hole and exit through the other.

Heavy breeze in a BH is not suitable for those young birds.

I was focusing my attention on the hexagonal tower tweeter. It was mounted about 4 feet above the roof and was not directly above the entrance hole.

I was on the opinion that the hexagonal should be located just above the entrance hole and if possible not more then 3 feet high above the roof surface.

Hmm.... this owner must have some good reasons for choosing the current positioning.

Well one more strange thing that I was very sure of was that the BH was not completed however the sound were heard from 1 kilometer away.

It is advisable to play those external sound when your BH have not fully completed?

My opinion is that it is not proper.

Imagine you are the bird and wanted to find a home. Once you hear the sound you will immediately track the sound. Once located you will zoom to the entrance hole and of course will enter the house.

Hey the moment you enter there were a few workers finishing up the house and loud sounds that scares you.

What do you think the impression that the young couple embedded in their brain? This house is with predators, noisy, dusty and so on. Once that bad impression is made, you will black list the house.

It is better not to operate those sound until the house is totally completed, treated and everything were in placed.

There is no need to hurry for if you do so you will reduce your chances of being CTOS or black listed !!!!!
