    Outdoor Shower pictures!

    As many of you we strive to create our own piece of paradise in our backyard.

    Two weeks ago we decided to re-built an outdoor shower. The original one was hooked up to a garden hose and we used a camping heater to get hot water to it, to say the least it was a hassle and I also didn't care for the shower curtains.

    Well, we finally have our cabana (shower/changing area) with hot/cold water, a light, etc. See Pictures!

    We had one similar at our place at the beach. Everybody loved it! It's fun to shower outside ....with privacy, of course

    Oh yes, anything that cuts down on the inside cleaning is a good thing!

    That's were we've got the idea from...we used to have a beach house w/ an outdoor shower, and hubby really missed it...and yes, the privacy factor is necessary...regardless of the outdoors

    Cheerio!

    It's built on top of a deck that is built on a slope, the slates have enough spaces between them to act as a drain and underneath is North Carolina Red Clay and leaves to catch it

    Re: Outdoor Shower pictures!

    Are you still heating from the camping heater? For the life of me I'd like to run hot water to ours but can't figure a cost effective way to do this. Any suggestions?

    Oh, no, no, no...the camping heater is gone....we had a plumber connect the lines to the house through our crawl space. The pipes are run along side the fence below the shower area towards the house and connected to the main water line. It's worth the money, the camping heater may work for camping but was not cutting it for a hot/cold outdoor shower....well it worked for cold, because then you did not need the heater....

    Hope this helps!
    Cheerio,
