I could not help myself!
Several years ago, living in New Jersey, I had some extra wood on hand. Since we were hosting block parties from time to time, my daughter, Larissa, and I decided to build an outhouse for the back yard. We built everything in about a four-hour period.
We set the outhouse at a corner of the back yard, looking out at the golf course behind the house. Needless to say, golfers on the first green just beyond the opening were seriously puzzled.
The only thing I had to buy for the outhouse was the toilet seat and hinges for the door. The rest was reclaimed or surplus materials.
In fact, this was our party shed. There was a cooler in the space under the seat. We filled the cooler with iced drinks. Anyone who wanted a drink had to go to the outhouse and reach through the seat! Withdrawals only—no deposits!
The building also served as storage for folding chairs, tiki torches, etc.
Needless to say, it was a “conversation piece!”
