I kidd you not, that looks exactly like my aunt and uncles outhouse! Yes, they still use an outhouse!! It is crazy. I remember visiting them ask a small kid and being freaked out by it. Nasty and sad. :-( Every Saturday night they boil their water for their weekly bath so they won't stink at church. I think everyone has those relatives. LOL Hope you have a great day!
Morning preacherman!this was my ganny's when we had that ice storm in "07"that outhouse would have been nice,to have when that cold air was blowing up your backside! :)
Is it still used?
hey AW,sadly no ! like I said it would have been nice to have had it in that ice storm !
Oh, Brrrrr. I'm so glad I don't have to use one of those in the snow and cold.Great picture. it really shows the textures.
That was the one thing I did not like about going to my grandparents' house. I hated taking the walk down that path.
Having seen and used any number of those fancy little buildings, I am amazed at how they all look about the same!I've been on a half dozen or more mission trips into central Mexico to build houses and it seemed my forte was the building of the family's new outhouse! Now I wonder if that was because I came from the deep south, or because I knew a thing or two about carpentry and the houses were build of concrete blocks?
My grandparent also had an outhouse; it was a two-holer. I can’t imagine the necessity of that, I like my privacy. The “flush” was ashes from the woodstove. For me as a kid, that was the fun part. Scooping up a can of ashes and pouring them down the hole.Another great picture-worth a thousand words.
