Negligent, that’s me. The outhouse has been finished for weeks, and I still haven’t given you part two of the process.
Perhaps I should not attempt to write series. I’m too inconsistent a blogger.
Anyway, here it is.
Husband finished putting the siding on. He took apart wooden pallets and put the slats on the sides. He thought about painting it, but I preferred the natural, weathered look.
On the back is the hatch to remove the waste. Husband put a door on it later, but I forgot to take a picture of that.
Finally, he painted the door and put that on. I wanted a bright yellow door with a blue moon. We decided not to cut the moon into the door because it’s a pretty nice door, so he cut out a crescent moon out of another piece of wood and screwed it into the door. Because every outhouse has to have a crescent moon. I don’t know why, but it does.
We decided to put the outhouse near the woods – far enough back to be slightly secluded, but not so far as to be inaccessible. The bright yellow door shines out from the dark green of the woods.
Inside it’s perfectly functional.
I like it.
