Do You Want an Outdoor Shower?

While staying at the Park Lane Guesthouse in Austin, the owner urged me to try the outdoor shower. I did, and fell in complete and total love. Now, I'm lamenting the lack of an outdoor shower at my own home, and trying to figure out how I could build one while using it for a greywater irrigation system for the garden. Hm . . .

My next door neighbors put one in this past Monday! It's totally visible from our upstairs windows and hallway, which is kinda strange, but it's not visible to anyone else. I'd LOVE to have one . . . my aunt had on at her old house in Santa Cruz, a bit above the ocean on a hill, so no one could see you, but when you showered you could see down to the ocean and the Boardwalk and it was so gorgeous!

Yes! I live in Arizona so besides the winter time we could use one. I've showered outside in the woods during summer and it was amazing.

Every summer we stayed at a Beach House that had an outdoor shower. It was good for a couple reasons 1.) Kids after the beach = a lot of sand and you don't want that in the house. 2.) Hot summer says nice cold shower!

I live in Illinois, not exactly outdoor shower compatible. We get oh, three months of hot and humid and the rest is cold, windy and dreary.

Maybe if I was near the beach and had lots of privacy.

I had one when I lived in Miami and loved it!! I had vegetation surrounding my shower space so there was privacy, the climate made it great to be outside nekked, etc. I moved to Colorado last year and have no plans of doing an outdoor shower just yet. I suppose backpacking in the summer and bathing in ice melt will just have to do.
