How to Make a Dry Toilet System Using Recycled Untreated Pallet Wood. Part 1. Why Waste Water? Au Petit Coin Du Jardin.

About: I am an escapee from modern life, now living by the sea in a forest garden in France. After over 20 years industrial experience, I quit my managerial position to study for a degree in Engineering. That done ...

We haven't used our flush toilet for a year and a half and have already saved 2/3 of our annual water bill. Better for us, better for the plant. My previous film showed how to make the compost bin, this one shows in detail the stages necessary for the construction of a small cabin to house the dry toilet, using wood recuperated from untreated pallets. This design can be used to create other small garden outbuildings for storage or recreation, the only limit is your imagination! The next film will show how to make the receptacle housing and the seat  - we have three, two in the outside toilet and one in the house.

    Thanks so much for your comment, it reminded me that I had forgotten to post the second part! I have just done so. There is also the compost bin, which I designed to complete the dry toilet system, it can be found here:- Best Wishes from La Baie de Mont Saint Michel, Organikmechanic aka Andy
