You have purchased a private house or a summer house. Immediately there are plans for the reconstruction of the premises and the site itself to its understanding of beauty and convenience. Here and the construction of the bathhouse, summer gazebo, a small pond with a decorative stream and a recreation area. A lot of work in the garden. Do not forget about the amenities on the territory of your site. Even if there is a warm toilet and central sewage in a residential private house or a summer house, a summer toilet in the garden will not be out of place. And probably, it is necessary to build it at the beginning of your large alterations on the site. When working on the construction of farm buildings or in the garden, it will be very convenient to use the summer toilet, and not to run into the house every time. On the household, most owners of private houses and summer cottages have leftovers from building materials - bricks, boards, gravel, etc. Throwing them away is not worth it; everything will come in handy on the farm. Before building a summer toilet, you need to consider its place in the garden. The way to the toilet should not be difficult from all corners of your site and at the same time it should be removed from residential buildings, a swimming pool, a sports area and a recreation area. It is also necessary to think over the design and materials from which you will build a toilet. Of course, you can build a toilet of the "toilet" type from old boards or plywood, but it is neither modern nor beautiful. Let's build a toilet so that it looks great and fits into the general landscape of your site. Having chosen the place of construction, we proceed to the marking. Let us dwell on the option of summer toilets made of cement blocks with a toilet, water supply for the warm season and electricity. It is a little expensive, but it will look modern and beautiful. We select the dimensions of the pit 2 by 2.5 and a depth of 1.5 meters. The bottom of the pit is not concreted, and the walls are laid out with red brick with gaps between the seams in the lower part of the wall. This is done so that the moisture itself goes into the soil. On the upper perimeter of the walls of the pit we lay the formwork, leaving a hole with a diameter of 150 mm. for flushing the toilet and 50cm. back for the cesspool hatch. We lay steel bars on the formwork to reinforce the toilet floor and pour a 10cm layer of concrete.

pour concrete layer

Concrete will completely harden in a few days. If the weather is hot and sunny, concrete should be periodically watered to prevent cracking. Now we spread the walls of cement blocks 12 cm thick. They are used in construction for the construction of internal walls in houses. It is first necessary to establish the level of the doorway frame and secure it with jibs.

If desired, mount the window frame into the wall. On top of the walls we install the formwork and logs for the ceiling with a slope for the roof.

slope for the roof

After the mortar screed on the top of the walls hardens, you can cover the roof, and inside to knock the ceiling with plastic. We hang the door and install the window.

we close e with a decorative grid

Inside, we lay ceramic tiles on the floor and on the walls, install the toilet, make an outlet in the wall and close it with a decorative mesh.

summer toilet

We bring water and electric wires. The peculiarity of the summer toilet is that in winter it is not used and the pipes and toilet can defrost. You have to turn off the water for the winter and drain it from the system. Therefore, it is better to conduct metal-plastic pipes through the air. An exhaust pipe should be installed from the cesspool so that unpleasant odors do not penetrate the toilet and fit the lid of the cesspool.

The inner walls of the toilet can be painted over the tiles with water-based paint, and the exterior can be decorated with a decorative stone.
