Greetings from a Noobie. First post
The talk of a sawdust toilet made me chime in here. Hope its not too late for some words of "experience". I drew you a picture ...
(pic deleted ... sorry.)
When you build the housing for the bucket, it is important to remember to offset the front wall of it for "heel room". Trust me, when you are negotiating the sitting down and standing up process, you will appreciate being able to get your heels farther back. On the ranch, we had two different outhouses - one with the heel room and one without. Nobody wanted to use the one without - it was just too awkward and uncomfy.
Also, you may want to consider ahead of time just how that bucket will get into and out of that cabinet. A friend had a sawdust toilet in her studio/guest house and had a drop-down front on it with a piano hinge at the floor line. The bottom of the cabinet, inside where the bucket sat, was raised up the same thickness as the hinged door so it was just a "slide in and slide out" rather than a "lift over the lip of the door" to get it out. I spose you could also make it a swinging door, too. She used to laugh about how she figured it would be cool if the bucket sat on a rail system (like a sliding drawer in a pot cupboard or on a desk keyboard shelf) so she didn't have to get down on her knees to get the bucket out. Sometimes wimmen are creative inventors .
The pretty butterfly is for folks who have sensitivities. LOL
Love this site. No bus. Have a Safari van I may live in, though.Thinking on it. Gotta get the pension first, though.
Hope this helps (and makes sense, too),
