Outhouse Garden Feature

I have a few books about outhouse located around the country and I thought one would make a nice garden feature along the wood line in my backyard. I have a small ceramic outhouse that I liked so I made full scale size plans off of it for this feature. It is authentic in style inside and out. After I placed it on the wood line it became quite a conversation piece. In fact it turned into a photo opp for family and friends. The inside walls are covered with their pictures. The last picture is me and is indicative of the gallery of friends and family pictures lining the walls.

I’m privy to a project like that. Believe it or not I’ve made one for a customer.

Nice job Dale, My family had one in the 50’s , along with a pitcher pump at the kitchen sink! Talk about simpler times. I built one recently for a friends hunting camp near Long Lake N.Y. to specs developed by N.Y. DEC . When I see yours I think of cold clear winters night, having to leave a warm bed for a long cold walk through dark woods. Good job, Dad,s wasn’t that nice. Rene
