The outhouse I am refering to will only be used for emergencies or if we're outside and it's closer to go to the outhouse. We have a bathroom and sometimes if someone is using it and you have to go, well, you know what I mean. We live in the edge of the Shawnee National Forest and don't have any close neighbors. I plan on calling the health department tomorrow. I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

Don't tell anyone! The gov't is not your friend nor does it understand practicality.

You might want to consider a two story setup and reserve th bottom story for "special visitors"

I agree with Salmoneye. But I'd add cut a piece of styrofoam to cover the seat on those cold winter days.

On the subject of outhouses, the ancient, and I mean REALLY ANCIENT outhouse locations are the best place to dig up antique bottles,cutlery and other odds and ends. Hardly a piece is found broken either which doesn't need further explaining.

the only thing i can suggest is that you keep a supply of red and white corn cobbs on hand two red cobbs for every white cobb to use cobbs correctly you use a red cobb and then a white cobb to see if you need another red cobb

I agree with salmon,Just a note look up outhouses on your browser, there are some amusing sites. I think the only law to follow is common sense.

DONT TELL THEM..!! just build it and use it. build it out of old wood. after a year move it to a different spot. so it dont smell up. make it looks like as a garden house where you keep your garden things.

If I were you...and I aint...I would not call or ask anyone...and I would tell the friends to not bring it up around town either...

Everything is legal...Long as you don't get caught...

Don't call no one here, and I'm the guy they gotta call. Here's the advice I give anyone wanting to put in an outhouse here in my area.
"Hang a rake or hoe in the outhouse" that makes it an implement shed, Can't help if it smells bad.

Good point build it out of old lumber and set it along the woods so it looks as if it has been there for 50 years

Why don't you really get fancy and make it a two holer? (just incase it really gets busy around there)
