Functional or just for looks an outhouse is a staple of the countryside. A quarter-moon design is cut out of the door. The history of the quarter-moon on the door of the outhouse goes way back to Europe in the 1500s or the 1600s. It was common practice, back then, to identify which outhouse was which by means of a circular symbol on the door of the men’s and a quarter-moon on the ladies’. The circular symbol and the quarter-moon were Europe’s version of the Chinese Yin and Yang. A little building such as this wooden outhouse shed can be equipped with a composting toilet or is perfect for storing overflow gardening tools. Want a classic functional outhouse?
