Can’t believe I failed to mention that last week’s heatwave made taking outdoor showers even more enjoyable and refreshing. We built our first outdoor shower back in 2003 and have been lovin’ it ever since. Can’t beat the atmosphere and view, sometimes even bees will visit while in the shower stall. Not to mention we are doing the edible plants surrounding the shower a huge favor (of course you have to use biodegradable soaps).
In the summer time we actually go months without using any indoor bathing facilities (our old claw foot tub) instead prefer to shower outdoors.
The outdoor shower is built with reclaimed wood (was a fence at one time) and a simple black garden hose coiled on top solar heats the water. A practical simple, solution.
