a tour of 4 outhouses The fourth is an amazing piece of art. With some really smart engineering. It seems that the secret to having no odor is to have a large pit and to vent the pit. It also helps to separate the pee. In all four, folks were encouraged to pee outside – way from the outhouses. Sawdust is used in case there is any smell. A properly built outhouse can be better for the environment than a septic tank or a sewage treatment plant. I like these three designs much better than any of the humanure systems or composting toilets. Relevant music by Jimmy Pardo
