Have used a composting toilet and though I love the idea, it did NOT work as advertised....interested in gas-fired incinerator models or just a state of the art outhouse design....can anyone help with ideas!!!!

There's a state-of-the-art outhouse? Man what'll they think of next?

DANGIT SCOTTY, when i said "Over and Out" i meant "over there next to it" NOT "out standing in it!" Now beam me up! :)

BTW Salmoneye's not kidding about lime - makes it much more pleasant. For venting, just put the lid down and run a short plastic pipe under the seat out back wall. Punch another "in" hole down by the floor. (Cuz you need 2 holes for circulation, with one hole you just have a leak.) Cover them with screens.
A remote light switch by the house helps too. :)

We just use a S%!#-Boat made of hickory or elm underneath no hole to dig...Bolt through a couple of iron rings and attach a chain to hook over the draw on your tractor...Pull it out to the middle of the garden in the Spring and Fall, and you are good to go...

No corn cobs or Sears Catalogs allowed in the 'boat'...Use only cheap TP and then, just enough...

And both are all orange-shellac'ed cedar bead-board inside...

Sometimes while I am sitting there...I wonder where the poor folk are doing their business...

I forgot!!!

You need a small pail of 'Sweet Lime' inside next to the TP so the person can toss a scoop on top when they are done...

Keeps the flies down...
