I like it! Where did you get that stuff you are using for a screen? I have been looking for it but I don't know what it is called or where to find it.

I think it was purchased at Lowe's or Home Depot. Proper permaculture would be if I had made it from local twigs, but I needed this in a hurry.

Nice. The straw curtain makes a good screen.

I had to line it with muslin because the reed screen is very see-through!

Good idea! Don't want the critters to see anyone's fanny! Just kidding. Our Out Houses have holes in the walls but both are set a bit away from the hiking paths and so usually no one is standing in line.
