Off Grid Living Bathroom and Outhouse Design Ideas

Arizona – Many off grid cabins use self composting or septic systems. In addition, many off grid bathrooms are designed to conserve and separate gray from #2 waste which is either composted or fed into a septic tank.

If you’ve never hear of using black soldier flies in tandem with composting toilets, you should do some research on them. They are a great way to turn human manure into free chicken feed.

Different areas of the country have different regulations about this. For example, most cities are against it and only more rustic regions of the country will generally be accepting. Even if you are allowed to have one however there will be a lot of restrictions put in place including the distance away from any water source for sanitary reasons.

Feel free to like, share and make comments about which off grid bathroom design you think will work best for your home.

Off Grid Wood Chip Composting Toilets

A composting toilet is not an outhouse with a hole in thing in the ground!  It does not smell.  It does not create pollution and building a compost toilet is a good way to take refuse and turn it into a important resource for gardening. It combines human waste and dry materials such as sawdust, wood chips, pine needles, crushed leaves, or wood ash and composts it with straw at a high heat to kill potential pathogens.

At the end of the process you are left with sweet smelling, clean, and hygienic compost that can be used to feed black soldier fly bins, which produce larvae for chicken feed and compost that can be used to fertilize gardens.
