Ah, just a little humor.


There was once a country boy who hated using the outhouse,
because it was hot in the summer and freezing in the winter… plus it stank all the time.

The outhouse was situated on the bank of a creek,
and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the creek.

So one day after a spring rain the creek was swollen,
so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek.

He got a large stick and started pushing.
Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away.

That night his Dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper.
Knowing this meant a spanking, the little boy asked why.

The Dad replied,
“Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn’t it, Son?”
The boy answered yes.
 
Then he thought a moment and said,
“Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree,
and didn’t get into trouble because he told the truth.”

The Dad replied,
“Well, son, George Washington’s father wasn’t in that cherry tree.”

"  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 "






Hi Michael  :mex:



Good idea !  :!:[toast]:!:



I found these ultra finescale & really expensive, military modeling air-con kits online.  :Salute:

The etched-brass fans wouldn't rust up, like all your mining junque.  ;)

So they should offer reliable service !  :thumb:





Maybe we could split the kit $$$ between You,  Me, & Woodie ?  :mex: :moose: :cb:



Your 'Bridge On The River Kwai' outhouse, would be more humane with modern air-con.  :w:

Woodies posh public conveniences really need air-con, to keep the Hollywood tourists happy.  [whack]

I might even attempt a modest outhouse myself !!  :shocked: :shocked:



:dt:

Si,

That's getting too expensive. 

Gotta be a way to model a window air-conditioner, without breaking the bank.

A top black-ops. plumber, like Archibald 'Harry' Tuttle in 'Brazil' ...

Awww, don't be a wimp!
A/C in a crapper?
Surely (just don't call me Shirley) a window A/C is way over the top...of something.
The idea is to get in there, do your business, and get the hell out as soon as possible.
This modern generation just ain't thinkin'.

No A/C fer me

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.


This has got to be my favorite outhouse model of all time.

Great job!

Can't find an image of the front. 

Made out of leftover corrugated metal.





I don't know about the A/C, although the ice hatch could be a fun idea.

Just the same, I think I'd be tempted to put a vent pipe on the little dumper oven.

A vent pipe...

Absolutely, your effluent is cooking down pretty fast in that sweat box.

With a vent pipe, the stink will be out and done quick.
