We find this experience — a hot shower, among the trees — to be one of the great joys of life, one we experienced this past weekend at our brother’s marvelous outdoor shower in Dutchess County. He was smart to build one with a small dressing room attached, so one’s towel doesn’t get soaked while bathing; it’s affixed to the side of his house, meeting the bathroom plumbing on the other side of the wall.
We’ve also had one in regular old suburbia, a solar shower attached to a laundry line. Not the same experience, but it’s a start, and they cost as little as ten bucks.
(Yes, this is a self-portrait!)
We found a few we liked on MSN, in the folksy variety.
There’s also a great opportunity for reclaimed materials: rocks and reclaimed lumber and corrugated metal:
Or beautiful modern designs:
If you don’t want a custom outdoor shower, here’s a company, Outdoor Showers of NJ, that assembles and installs them, starting at around $1,500.
