This dove house is intended to be placed under an eave. Much thought and design has gone into making sure these dove houses are both functional and attractive. They've designed the base boards for easy cleaning. To remove the base board by hand, unscrew the thumb screw just enough to loosen it. Then, pull the base board out and any nesting material should fall out of it's own accord (you may want to do this over a trash can).
After cleaning, slide the base board back into place and tighten the thumb screw against the middle dowel. It doesn't have to be extremely tight, just enough to keep the base board from wobbling.Doves are more likely to nest in the dove house if the base board is secure (doesn't move). They've had success with doves nesting in these dove houses as many as 6 times in one season. They started nesting the day after it was put into place and haven't stopped since. Made with cedar and stained with 100% bio-based eco-friendly wood stain. Removable base board for easy cleaning.
