Really beautiful wood. Great job.

Not sure what I’m more jealous about. The beautiful door or the fact you can enjoy an outdoor shower.

Harvey,

when I saw this door, I knew it was tropical wood. Then I looked at the second pic, and I see the ginger and heliconia…and I’m thinking that the wood looks like nispero. Then I went to your bio, and see that you live in the Osa.

I have a place in Cahuita…built it in 1977. I have 2 outdoor showers, but never built a door for them…don’t need one, as there’s nobody around to look. I finally built a bathroom last year, but I still prefer my outdoor showers. However, I don’t miss my outhouse :-)

Nice door

Hi Zachz,
Anyone can have an outdoor shower. Tropical is warmer though. I didn’t post a photo of the hot water part. Just black pipe on the top.
Shopdog, The wood is mostly christobal. We live about a 35 minute boat ride away from the OSA/Pto Jimenez at the NE corner of the Golfo Dulce. Boat access only and solar power electric. Generator for this stuff.
Thanks Monte, Ken and Hillbilly for the nice comments.
