Well, the bird answered my main question by constructing two bower walls in about two days after my original post to this list. I've added a photo (taken on Monday 2nd Sep) of the bower to the album for those who might be interested.
I also heard from someone who has studied Satin Bowerbirds and it seems that the size/thickness of the platform is probably not that unusual.
My suspicion is that this is a new blue male and he's doing things a bit differently to the previous male as well as building on the old foundations. His display call seems different (I haven't heard him mimic a Kookaburra as in previous years) and he seems a lot less shy of me and possibly slightly smaller.
