The moment we’ve all been waiting for… A REAL place to poop!! It may not look like much, but this custom-built unit provides a comfortable and sanitary perch to take care of daily business without the use of a shovel! 😉
We didn’t take any action shots of the construction because we’re down a pair of hands since Mark flew back to Florida, but we’re pretty proud of the outcome.
It’s a pretty basic start making use of pallet floors (walls to be raised sometime over the summer), but this ‘au naturale’ set-up allows us to compost our solids and divert liquids and shower run-off to a natural downhill drain for grey-water treatment. You can read more about how it works at Ecovita. We’re hoping to install a real toilet seat when we find the perfect fit- maybe one with LED lights, or one of those famous Florida seashell varieties!
This unglamorous little chore was on the top of the priority list and it feels SO good to now have a sense of normalcy as we start to adjust to our new daily routine. Still much to do to continue with unpacking and organizing, setting up a water catchment system for the summer rains, and weatherizing to live with winter snows, but we are absolutely loving every minute of it! Thank you all for following, and we love your comments!!
