LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

Seriously? You got a television in there?


Sitting back from the road on US 276 near our community is an outhouse.  Looks like a two-seater.  And surprisingly there is a satellite dish on top.  It is on the property of a heating and air conditioning service and installation office.  One has to wonder;  if you have a satellite dish for a television in your outhouse, couldn't you install indoor plumbing?



All right.  Truth be told, the outhouse is really a storage shed.  And when you live in the mountains, you place the satellite dish anywhere you can to get reception.  But I do love the sloped roof, the hinged door, and the moon and stars that make it look just like an outhouse.  Makes me smile every time I pass by.  And a smile is always a good thing.

That is such a funny thing, that outhouse with a satellite dish. I love that they kept the outhouse look and converted it. Great photo!

That would make me smile too! It's like a continual joke :)

I had a fun outhouse experience this fall. Next to a remote trail, there is a brown outhouse. It is fully functional and unlocked. There is no cabin, nor the remains of an old cabin. It was a mystery to me for years as to why this outhouse was there.

Then, on a Saturday morning this fall, I met an elderly couple (81 yrs old, each of them) walking down that trail carrying a paint can and brushes. They own the mining claim where the outhouse is. When their kids were young, they camped there very frequently, and they decided to build an outhouse to use during camping. They say that they paint it yearly.

I talked with them for close to an hour, showing them the bear-marking trees on their mining claim, and asking them about the "old days" here. We are now in touch via email. It was really special to meet them.

Thanks for sharing your "fun" outhouse!!!!!!

Cute!

I've had to use one of those, on numerous occasions and I'm glad I don't have to anymore. I'd much rather just look at them.

Love it! We actually have an outhouse down near our barn. Very useful since the barn is a steep quarter mile from the house.
