Building Outhouses Construction Plans

Outhouses, outbuildings, privys...just a few of the names that this shed building is known to be called. While its original purpose may be no longer required in most areas, consider having one in your backyard as a place to store garden tools and gardening supplies. Your visitors and neighbors will do a double-take. An outhouse, (also known as a privy, kybo, jakes or earth-closet) usually refers to a type of toilet in a small structure separate from the main building which does not have a flush or sewer attached.

Outhouses, History of

While outhouses are one of the humbler elements of our sanitation systems, they have received a surprising amount of design attention and even public affection. They were actually a considerable advance over many older disposal methods in the United States (open trenches, cesspits), and the U.S. government actively encouraged their use in rural areas in the 1930s and 40s.

Outhouse building information

Very basic building information. In the old days people bought powdered lime or lye and sprinkled it down into the hole to help with the smell. You may want to add wood chips or sawdust each time you use it so that the material will compost.
