We are going Roman!

Our new summer outhouse, intimate and airy.

Romans had public toilets, for example at Ephesus, where you could take care of your business–without any privacy whatsoever–while chatting with the person next to you. Pictures of Roman toilets are available at Alun and PBS.

So, when we recently decided to return to our roots, we had the plumbers move our toilets to the front porch. You will notice that we left the tanks open, hoping that the thunderstorms we've been having will fill them up while helping us lower our water bills.

Now we are trying to get the neighbors used to the idea.

Bootstrap analysis has more toilet humor.

I think the appropriate American phrase is:
"Euwww!" :)
