I also managed to finish the outhouse/garbage can holder. I had to install a foot locking mechanism to hold the door open and I had to chisel out the lock hole. The tolerance was too close and all the rain caused the wood to swell and the locking mechanism would not work. I found the door flopping in the wind after the garbage guys got done with it. So I buried a post in the ground just below the bottom of the door and drilled a hole in the top of the post. The door is opened, directed above the post and a locking mechanism is engaged by stepping on it, therefore locking the door open. It works pretty slick. The moon and star add the last little bit to the building. It ended up turning out pretty good. Kinda fancy for a trash can holder but it goes well with the surroundings.
