Outhouses. 

That building that addresses a very basic human need;
that allows us some semblance of decency.

All are invited to post photos, either models or the real thing,
or share information that will deepen our understanding of the lonely outhouse.

The window is a nice touch.

What's with the oar on the roof?

Maybe when the oar is up, the dunny is unoccupied.

When it's down so is the seat.

Or it's used to help clear blockages when the flush won't do it!

That double decker thing was an ancient joke when I was a little kid
(it ranks right up there with the mail boxes on very high poles, with "Air Mail" written on the sides)…


They were still in use when I was a kid, in the 70s and 80s, in Northeast Tennessee.
I know one of my Mom's relatives had one as I used it once.

The problem with documenting real ones is that there are so many ones built for 'local color,' the heck of it or as a joke,
it's hard to confirm one specifically built for that intention.


Here's one on my layout:





It came with a Grandt Line flag stop kit but I never used it for that.

I painted it a weathered wood color, then placed rubber cement on sections,
then spray painted white, weathered that,
then used tape to pull the paint off for peeling paint.

I like how it turned out.

Ken's post (#2) of the crapper with a high tech terlet (twa-lette to you un-initiated) is cool...
I have NEVER seen an OH with a ceramic device inside...
I guess the ones I have seen and used were of the "homemade" variety,
with a funky wooden plank with a hole cut in and wasp nests everywhere.
Some fun.
Who remembers outhouse "tossing"?
Long ago, errant teens and other bad boys (girls evidently didn't participate)
would push over the outhouse... sometimes with some poor soul inside.
Ahhh, I miss those early days, of course I didn't live back then.
