Post and Beam Composting Outhouse

September 1, 2014

In preparation for an upcoming workshop at the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge, Timberhomes has cut a small post and beam frame to house two composting toilets that will be raised on day one of the workshop. The building features traditional mortise and tenon joinery throughout, and accommodates two loos, presumably comfortably separated.
