I built this for my wife last year, though I have to admit I use it when our state birds (mosquito) get aggressive. Not exactly fine art, just a fun project. I did design and build the door on the spot with scrap lumber and was pleased with the way it turned out.

Is this a new “1/2 bath” for the wife? I’m sure she is very appreciative!

It’s supersuper cool. For the love of all things woodworking, sheath that blasted composite! I live in a log home and I’m a very paranoid dude, hence my doors are steel with Medco’s and bulletproof glass. Kind of hard to get the “rustic look” with that level of paranoia. I’m considering sheathing a steel door and your design is really appealing to me. Thanks!

Okay, I see some possibilities for what that is… Care to give details or are we gonna have to guess what it is supposed to be?

Could this be an outhouse?

The world’s finest compressor outbuilding?

Sorry Dbhost , I should clarify my post by stating that this is a human waste disposal/management system or as is commonly referred to here, an outhouse. If your my neighbor, you refer to it as a “fancy @#$ter that probably has that expensive paper people use to wipe ….. in it.” Tongue-in-cheek, of course :)

Bob Costello, I tried to convince her it could be a dual use station, she wouldn’t buy it!

Thank you for the compliment Bertha.

That was my guess, but it could have been an outbuilding for a compressor, dust collector, or a teeny tiny shed… You know what they say about Ass U ME ing anything…

Nice building, but where I live this IS considered to be indoor plumbing.

Nice looking structure.

Nothing wrong with being prepared, Bertha.

That is a really attractive out building. I like the vent that doubles as a canopy when it is raining. Nice job on it!!
D you get light in from the vent?
That would be a good application of a solar light with the solar pad on the roof. I made a little shed for my fire pit tools , pokers, chairs, etc and put a solar light in there. It comes in handy when it is pitch dark out!

It does give a little light in the summer when we have long daylight hours Jim. Comes in handy to get away from those skeeters here :)
