This is the composting toilet we have that is indoors for winter time and emergencies/kids during the warmer months:

Truth be told, DH and I honestly don't mind going to the bathroom outside and there are actually a gazillion health benefits of going potty while squatting. Shoot, there's even a market of these things that you can buy to put on top of your normal toilet to make you squat to do your business:

We all know squatting is good for pregnancy and birth anyway so I should be good.

As for the outhouse, that's a legit outhouse, but we're going to make it a bit "prettier" than your weekend cabin outhouse since it's going to be pretty permanent until we're done building our next house w/ a more permanent/bigger composting toilet.

Here is an example of a "pretty" outhouse. Ours won't be nearly this fancy, but I am going to have some nice ventilation/flowers etc.. to not make it seem so backwoods

Never imagined in a million years I'd make a thread this long on how we poop LMAO!
