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

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.
