Thursday Outhouses - Lloyd Alter

Treehugger's architecture expert and shedworking champion Lloyd Alter is also the proud owner of a quite outstanding A-frame outhouse on Shoe Lake near Dorset, Ontario. It was built five years ago to Lloyd's own design by his neighbour Brad Johnson, one the area's best timberframers. "To do the A-frame roof it started on a five foot square base," says Lloyd. "The entire back wall is screened so the air just flows through it and it never smells. Magazine shelves are mounted on the inside and there is a beautiful view of the lake through the portholes."

  2. Unfortunately, if anyone comes up the pat while you are in the bathroom, you better shout quickly if you don't want anyone getting a view!

    Any chance you'd be willing to share your plans? We're in the midst of building an A-frame composting toilet outhouse for our property in the woods.
