Is your bathroom small, dark and smelly, and a place where you spend as little time as possible? Consider surrounding yourself in nature with an open-air or partially open-air bathroom. They’re ideal in tropical climates, because odors and moisture are rapidly vented away. Open-air bathrooms are often used in luxury resorts and eco resorts so patrons can be close to nature. Using natural materials such as stone, pebbles, coral, pottery, wood and plants creates a unique environment with inviting ambience. Scented flowers are a wonderful touch. You can build extremely beautiful bathrooms like the ones shown here at very low cost by using locally available natural materials and doing the work yourself.

kindly update me on the new concepts in earth building i have a vision to put up cottages for accommodation in my village/eco lodge so that i can create jobs and again i wish i could get a partner.Am based in kenya and i love the natural building concept.
Our blog and other websites have hundreds of ideas that can help you. Just keep reading.
I am very concerned about your information on people who have built their homes and gardens way off the grid, in the desert, San Bernadino counties and ??
county rulings to dismantle their homes, destroy, terrible!
basic needs, food, shelter, clothing!
we need to fight, who is? how?
can they not be grandfathered in?
appreciate your blog!
Vote for your favorite. Or send a link if you find one better.
Also note, you don’t have to go “all out” like these designer bathrooms. Even a few small touches can make a big difference.
in the little below permit, domes of mine in the Mojave Desert, 50 miles west of Las Vegas, am designing bathrooms and kitchen outdoors, these are good ideas and give people ways to re think their needs! I will send you cc next spring when I have finished them!
so appreciate your blog!
