Components of a simple off-grid bathroom:
- Sawdust toilet.
- Hand-washing system.
If you or yours plan on shitting in a bucket, make it a nice bucket. This compost toilet was based on the design described in The Humanure Handbook with some amendments including an integral sawdust cabinet with alder root handle. It’s made of oak veneered plywood using the kerf bending technique to achieve a rounded profile and conceals a 5-gallon bucket.
The hand washing system uses two 20-liter, stainless steel containers by Superfustinox.
The bathroom is zero-waste since composted toilet contents and greywater may be used on the garden. Completely self-contained, it can set up anywhere: like in this early 20th-century ranch outbuilding.
