Just as I had planned, I was left alone to do what I wanted to do for the day. By 8:30 AM I had reached my weekend goal for the bathroom. So I decided to push on.
Leveling the bricks for the foundation was not near as hard as what I thought it was going to be. I had to dig out and strategically place each one where the weight was going to be so the floor would not sag.
That was it. This is all I had planned.
Just as I finished it everyone got back home so again I enlisted the help from the girls and we drug this one in place as well.
When I was talking to her about how I was going to build the shower she said "Why don't you just use the bathtub as a shower / tub combo". I had been figuring on this shower deal for a long time now. How it was going to drain, how it was going to look and so on. After she said that I scratched my head and tried to come up with a reason why it would not work, I couldn't.
Now with the design change, I have the room for the dressing / sitting bench I was wanting and maybe a potbelly stove to heat the place during the winter.
The next step is to clean a bunch of that old barn wood and frame in the remaining three walls and gable roof.
In case you are wondering, the drain to the tub/shower will be externally piped to the left in the picture above with the sink connecting into it finally dumping out on some little trees off to the left of the pic.
More about the composting toilet, It will not be urination purposes because with a sawdust toilet you have to keep the liquids to a minimum. Being this is a mans mans bathroom, I plan to build a home made urinal and the urine will be diluted and poured on the fruit trees. (Read up on it, it works)
That's all I got for now, the wife is hollering at me, something about spending time with her or something, I don't know.
