In the days before indoor plumbing, every house had an outhouse. Public buildings usually had separate "his" and "hers" privies, with stars marking the men's doors and moons on the ladies'. These houses are made of weathered cedar with dogwood twig trim around the "door" and on the roof peak. A piece of castoff metal hardware or old screw serves as the doorknob. Chickadees, downy woodpeckers, titmice and nuthatches will enjoy nesting in the privy houses. A hole on the back panel allows for mounting on a nail on a fence, tree or post. The side panel swings up for easy cleaning at the end of the nesting season.
