The Duplex


I should have suspected something was wrong when the rent was so cheap on the “cozy, rustic duplex” I rented sight unseen.






Seriously, it had to have been a really creative mind that came up with this design for an outhouse that we spotted in our travels.

    Well, I presume that each one is a one-holer. I’ve always wondered about outhouses that had two or even three holes. Can you picture two or three people sitting in there together? I like the duplex design better, myself.

    His and her outhouse! How cozy!!!

    Linda — I think the PERFECT design would have been with the doors facing each other, so that they could open the door and pass the “tissue” or the reading material back and forth!

    Pam — Yeah, or “we” and “them” outhouses. You could keep one “nice” for guests! 🙂

    Before I read your comment to Linda, I was thinking they should have little holes in the adjacent sides so they could talk to each other. But I think doors facing each other is a much better idea!

    My great uncle Granville (we all called him Granny) lived at the old family homestead and we had to use an outhouse when we visited him. Oh, my goodness, why on earth have I not blogged about Granny?! I must do so soon.

    Beth — Believe it or not, the family farmhouse where Hubby grew up, and where we later lived, didn’t have an indoor bathroom until he was 10 years old! So, he knows outhouses. I always thought it was funny when we lived there, and the outhouse was long gone, that the spot where the outhouse had been always had noticeably greener grass than anywhere else. 🙂

    And also, Beth, I will look forward to some Granny stories!

    now that is a lovely two seater. When I was a kid our two seater was one outhouse with two holes.

    Yes, Pamela. I think that is more the norm. Apparently, this “duplex” was built by someone with privacy “issues!” 🙂
