My newly remodeled out outdoor shower. I constructed this project in the shop then took it apart and put it back together along side our shed out back. The water is heated by a solar collector that I built. The collector heats a 30 gal holding tank that hangs in the rafters of the shed to about 120 to 130 degrees each “sunny” day but only during the spring and summer months.
I was going to use Cedar but used pressure treated wood to keep the cost down. I used Redwood Neutral stain by BEHR.

This is what it looked like before I did the remodel.

How I built the solar collector.

Hey Tony,

Now you have a place to wash off the sawdust. :<)

Nicely done!

Looks great. Better than my glass house shower. You have much better privacy. Mine was a temporary measure while we renovated the house.

Thanks Tom! It’s a great felling to be squeaky clean naked outdoors! LOL!!!

Thanks Mark! I get by with a little help from my tools! I need to rest a spell now or I’ll need a bigger cooling fan for my brain!

Thanks Andyboy and Redtail !

I forgot to mention I used these free plans for the general idea. I didn’t use hardly any of their measurements.

I added the lattice work and made changes to fit my needs.

Wow, that’s realy awesome. It’s a real shower cabin which could embarrass modern hotel and spa shower cabins.
