It isn’t too often that an Outhouse can be saved from being scrapped but Hope found this Outhouse laying on its side and ready to be cut up by the owner. She convinced the owner to give it to her and here are her own words describing the find.

Hi,  I recently found an old 3 seater outhouse laying on its side in the back of someones house.  My husband and I thought it would be great for our back yard as a tool shed.  Our house is 117 years old so this is a perfect fit.  We have dressed it up quite a bit, but left the interior original.  I absolutely love this building.   Hope

The picture of it laying on it’s side is how I found it.  The fella was going to chop it up.  We painted the outside, but left the interior all original.

If you look at the inside shot, you can see a lower smaller hole. That one was used by the children. They being shorter needed a lower hole. In our Outhouse, we had a smaller diameter hole for the children and built a step out of wood for them to climb up onto the platform.

  1. I would love to figure out how to make one of these. I grew up for 10 years with an outhouse only for outdoor bathroom… I have a dear friend that has told me to come get all the barn wood I need from a barn she wants to get rid of and I would love to figure out the plans that our grandson can build for me in the back yard…..any way you have measurements….

    1. We sell plans for just one style of Outhouse in our on line store. The one shown in this picture was restored by someone who sent the pictures to us. Thanks for commenting. John
