I have been really busy the last couple of weeks building a Solar Bath House.

When completed, the water will be pressured from the harvested rain water through a 12v on demand pump. It will then be heated in the batch water heater and delivered into the Bath House.

Inside, the bathroom will have a home made composting toilet, sink and a bathtub/shower combo made from a horse trough. Light will be from solar lighting during the day and oil lamps at night.

Here are some pictures of what has been built so far.





Composting toilet with saw dust bucket on the side.







Cute flower box.







Horse trough bathtub/shower combo.







A Sitting bench.








The building is 7’X10′

The batch solar water heater will be placed along the side wall in the picture above.

The sink will be made from an old steel bowl the wife had in the cabinet. I am in the process of building the stand for it now.







This weekend I plan to get the plumbing done and then I will start on the water heater part of it.

More pics can be found on my daily blog.

Plus I am doing something fun. For a small $10.00 donation to help finish the Bath House, you can have your name placed on the “Bathroom Wall”. Just click over to my blog and hit the donate button, leave your email and that’s it. Your name will be seen by thousands. Who would not want their name on the Bathroom wall?
