Outdoor toilet… masterpiece number two
We enjoy having friends coming over for potluck lunch parties.
Initially, we had them inside the house but I did not want to burden my missus with too much cleaning after the event.
So, I moved the event outdoors, onto the spacious dead-end part of the road just in front of our house.
I picked up a wooden table from the university, which was disposed off as rubbish, and it is just perfect for such events .
The table is probably 30 to 40 years of age and still very solid.
Problem was the toilet…
When we renovated the second floor, I kept the toilet bowl, knowing that one day it would come in handy.
From a stone wholesaler nearby, I picked up some wood which was used to hold the stones together during transportation.
From the tall reeds which I cut when clearing the field, I constructed the walls…
And hoola, my ‘masterpiece’ number two (see masterpiece number one here).
All from materials recycled, and ‘free’ of charge…
I sited the toilet at the furthermost south-eastern point of our potager.
The pond beyond is called Sasao Pond, and it makes a beautiful backdrop for the toilet, doesn’t it?
In early May, we invited a bunch of friends over and put the toilet out for a test.
The ladies who used the toilet were quite thrilled (or too polite with their comments?)… said they, ‘ it was like a trip back to the olden days…
how nice it is, to answer the call of nature while enjoying the open sky and the green’…
