Try Not To Use The Monkey House To Store Those Water Tank !!!
The sole purpose of your monkey house in your BH is to attract those wild birds entering the house and no other purposes.
During one of my inspection visit, I was shown how a monkey house was used to store those water tank.
To store the water tank the owner put up a floor about 2/3 the size of the monkey house floor. Only 1/3 was opened for those birds with lots of sharp corners to reach the entrance door into the nesting room. There were two partitions, floor up that simply block the flying path.
I think this should not be encouraged.
A monkey house with a floor and opened only 1/3 plus lots of walls and staircase area will defeat its actual purpose.
I would like to remind all my blog readers that it is not easy to lure these wild birds into your BH even with a proper opening, wide and total, of the monkey house floor. If you should start blocking their flying path, I can say that you are not helping your self.
Try to locate the water tank to other part of the BH. The best is at a corner on the top most floor of your BH nesting room. You can erect a platform to provide the height for the water pressure.
Open the monkey house floor to the maximum and allow those precious birds to fly with ease to your nesting room.
Trust me that by blocking their flying path inside the monkey house you will face a huge problem in populating your BH.
No matter how many thousands of birds are out there, they will ignore your BH if you do not understand their needs and proper flying path into your house.
They might enter your BH just one time and once they discovered that the flying path is too tight, where they might hurt themselves, they will not enter your BH any more.
Treat this article as something that you can learn and make sure you do not make the same mistake.
I am just giving an opinion and you have every reasons to object my comment.
