    Here's the 1905 outhouse that is on our property.

    If you have an old outhouse on your property, and it hasn't been used in years and years, try digging down into it... Seriously.

    Back in the day, people used to throw old bottles, etc. in their outhouse "refuse pits"... You can make some serious cash selling them if you find old ones (like medicine bottles) that are still in good quality. I saw a show about it on the History Channel.

    I have outhouse envy! I wish I had one for my kids and DH to use so they would stay out the house bathroom! Kids and men can be so,...let me see,..trying to use the right word,..NASTY! [​IMG] If I had an outhouse I could clean it with my high pressure washer/waterhose and not have to touch all the disgusting stuff [​IMG] ,...and keep my nice bathroom in the house just for me! Ahhhhhhhhhhh,.....just a dream. [​IMG]

    my grandparents had an "electric" corn cob on the wall all my life [​IMG] So when I moved in I put up a sign
    Outhouse Rules
    Be Neat
    Leave it like you want to find it
    Put the Lid down
    Leave paper for the next one
    Shut the door so the chickens wont get in

    Its tan and has an outhouse on it.

    This is something that I made for my bathroom about 6 years ago...

    And the top picture is one painted for me by a friend, the lower one is a photo I took in the mountains....

    I was glad when I could leave the outhouse behind. I don't want to decorate the inside of my house like one.

    But if it makes you happy, then that makes two of us.

    Similarly, my sister used to dislike going out to eat to "country cooking" establishments, like Po' Folks and Cracker Barrel. Her logic?

    "S**t," she'd say, "I can cook that stuff at home any time. Why would I want to pay good money for it when I eat out?!"
