Been out for a while. Been busy fixing up the house. Thought I'd share the fruits of my labor.
Here's a picture of our new bathroom. We wanted that Post-Modern-City look:
Here's a peek at the inside!
Notice that it's a "Two Seater"! One for each cheek!
We spared no expense.
My grandfather had one of these on his property. Interestingly, his house was a rather modern ranch house complete with plumbing, electricity, running water and bathrooms. For whatever reason he still kept that old outhouse on his property. I used it when I was a child.
I googled "Outhouse" and found this link: OutHouse - Click Here!
Anyone else have their "Outhouse Stories" to share??

The outhouse on my grandfather's property was a "one-holer".
I am now reading stories about "two-holers". Heck, Spacenurse's aunt and uncle had a "six-holer". Here's my question. Why would any outhouse need more than one hole? Why two or even SIX???
thought that outhouses were places to congregate. Were they? Were multi-holed outhouses places for friends and family to gather and sit, execute bodily functions and share community gossip?? Someone help me out here??
What happens if one wasn't invited to a "community sit"?? Was it an insult??
Enquiring minds want to know. . .
Quote from canoehead
My grandfather built one with a little bitty seat for the kids and a big hole for the grown-ups. Man, was I excited when I grew up enough to use the big seat all by myself without falling in!
That was very thoughtful of your grandfather. I would not want to see your grandfather's grand-daughter share the same fate as Spacenurse's Aunt's kitten.
I wish my grandfather was that thoughtful. I remember getting a splinter one day.
