The one done with the fridge is a top recycling treasure:

Eat from the fridge, let nature follow it's course,
and then put it back where you got it first.

Here's the backside of an outhouse at Whiskey Flats. 
Can't find an image of the front. 

Made out of leftover corrugated metal.

But that looks OK for poor folk I guess

Great model work, but wow, an outhouse made of that, in use in the desert?
There's an outhouse people would be in a huge hurry to get out of in the summertime!

This reminds me of all the prison/POW camp movies,
where they use something like this to torture people for bad behavior!

And here is the "bano" in downtown Boquillas.
Located underneath the aerial tramway terminal and just s few stumbles down from the Bloated Goat #3.





A nice little adobe/stucco outhouse for both ladies & men.
Located near the main line, train crews can stop when needed.
Bano is Spanish for bathroom...or outhouse.

Lee,

Can't help myself. 
Just how long does anyone plan on being in there? 
How about if I hang an air conditioning unit on the side of the outhouse.
 
I'm not an expert on outhouses,
but the few that I've used were never what I would consider pleasant nor comfortable,
and not a place I wanted to linger.

You might be thinking of the movie The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
where Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness) was locked in a small metal shed as punishment.

The Bridge On The River Kwai did come to mind actually

I certainly wouldnt wish for the door hinges to seize up whilst I was on the can

If you gotta go, it's either in there or outside-which might be a bit better.
However, I have seen the prototype for this outside of Mesa, AZ.
OK then, no more outhouse humor from me...maybe.
