outhouse

We decided to build an outhouse (in modern lingo perhaps one could describe it as an super-green ecotoilet) at our dad's place. My brother Jed is an architect, so this provided with him an opportunity to create the type of structure that most architects never get a chance to even dream of designing. We knew that we didn't want our new outhouse to be "traditional" in appearance. Jed drew up the plans, we raided the old man's lumber and junk piles, rolled up our sleeves and got to work.



Framing in progress.





The finished structure, after being moved to its permanent location.
When seated inside, you get a great view of the edge of the spruce swamp located across the field. We have speculated that our super-green ecotoilet would make an excellent and comfortable blind during deer season.
