Awh, an outside John Smile that takes me back to some fond memories. wellies on & nipping very quickly outside, torch in hand. That instant squeal as bum hits freezing cold loo seat, time to contemplate what to do today, reading the Witches Gazette before its torn and---- you know. Thanking God the over head cistern didn't come crashing down as you pull the clanking chain of doom Smile Crunch, crunch crunch thru the snow & home, or, slop slop slop in the wet mud....& home, OR, thump thump thump if its a dry night Smile

:facepalm: Embarassed
I knew someone would think it looked like an outhouse. There's a bathroom inside the cabin though, this is just to hold the pump and water-heater set-up, and some tools. I'm planning on putting a passive solar water heater in the roof too.

I did grow up with an outhouse for several years. The worst was going out at night with just a candle, and thinking back to the latest horror movie you've seen...

A freezing cold night is when you want a wooden rather than a porcelain seat.

True, but who has porcelain toilet seats?

ugg outside loos. The last time I used one was up a mountain in Spain. The light attracted huge buzzing flapping insects which flew round my head like the moons of Uranus. No

Look at this bourgeois over here with electric light in her outhouse! Mad

Anyway, no outhouses over here, it's a pump-room and storage-shed.

Yesterday I finished carving the fascia for the side facing my house.
Here it is perched on a board leant up against the building:

I had some wood in my hand today. Held it firm & applied several strokes, it was very satisfying !


I painted my gate Smile
