My husband made some rough log cabins for summer nesting sites thinking they would be less stuffy/humid than the hedgehog houses we have. One hedgehog looked a bit hot and bothered in the the hedgehog house which it was using as a nest in the summer (during extremely hot weather). However the resident hog in our garden loves the log cabins and uses those and spurns the hedgehog houses. All he does is steal the hay from the hedgehog houses and puts it in the DIY log cabin. He has built a wall of vegetation in front of the log cabin which he has to climb over to get in. Hope this information is useful to you.
