My camp build started as a dream

The dream was to create a writer’s paradise. I wanted a tiny writer’s cabin with a window that had lots of panes of glass. This window would look out over water. You wouldn’t sit at a table, you would lie in a bed.

What a great dream

Step One

The needs behind the house of need to

Building the shizzer shack

Creektreat’s washroom, aka the “shizzer shack”

This is where you’ll find the posts relevant to the outhouse build. This is a great building for anyone thinking of a tiny house. It’s pretty easy to build, it’s very easy to insulate. I could easily have built it with 10 or even 12 foot ceiling if you wanted to do a loft. I just wanted a washroom.

Here’s what I did

We call the outhouse the “shizzershack.” I probably got a little carried away with it. I found this great site (recommended: APB barns). After reading the great info there I got excited and decided to build a tiny house washroom.

The posts here will detail parts of the build. If you’d like a book or instructions on how to build your own version of the shizzer shack post a comment and I’ll write one. I think I’ll charge around three bucks, so let me know if there’s any interest. Thx Creeky.

The next post for this build is “Step One the Shizzer Shack Rises.”
