The sides were assembled and roof raised on the solar shower today. The shower will be heated by coiled black garden hose (bottom right pic) that will be mounted on the top of the shower. On one side of the shower is a gigantic compost bin and an assortment of edible fruit trees and plants that run along the fence line which willl all benefit from the water. The planks making the shower were all recycled and free ( I think I mentioned that already!). For the flooring, we are thinking of perhaps some round pebbles — nice on your feet and it will allow the water to perculate into the surrounding compost bin and surrounding plants. Eventually, Jules is thinking of adding an urinal inside the shower that will drain into the adjacent compost bin.
The worm bin has been displaced because of all the new construction. Finding another permanent spot for our worms is vital, but a new home will have to wait. We still have lots of work to do and right now we aren’t sure where the plants will go, so we are temporarily storing the worms in a few plastic bins.
The next project is the garden/storage shed that will go where the bunny hutch once was. The shed will be useful in taking our garden tools out of the garage and placed where we can easily storage the animal feed. One thing that we are in desperate need of here on the homestead is storage space! So this shed should help with organizing things.
