I took advantage of the beautiful weather.we had this weekend to get some more work done on the Banty Shanty: First, and most important, had to position signage.

The lower door: Or, if you're feeling a bit more "adventurous," you can gather the eggs thru the top door: Just make sure you put the lid down before you go: What's a Shanty without an Outhouse! Interesting outhouse facts. When outhouses were first established in the 1800s, a lot of folks couldn't read. Therefore, in order to tell the difference, a women's outhouse had the crescent moon, whereas the men's outhouse had a star.
