Hi Paul & Suzanne,
Photo of the first one as requested. The second one is in position but I haven’t dug the soak-away yet. Tomorrow maybe…
I lined the insides with 5mm ply to make then less shed-like and because I’m using a smaller (circular container, I was able to make the base section a lot lower. I didn’t radius the top of the door because I decided to leave the top spacer in to hold the frame more rigidly.
It’s a good design and I’m very pleased with the results.
Kind regards, Gary
We have just completed the first of many compost toilets. Thank you for the concise plans and for your support over the phone.
