SHOWER HOUSE ???

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any plans or ideas for a shower house? I would like to build a shower house on our vacation property. We do not have electricity, but we can run the generator or hook up a pump to a 12 volt battery. We have a well so getting water is easy just need ideas on getting hot water for the shower.

I have actually been thinking about this at our lake place. Something pretty rudimentary. My initial idea would include building a 6 x 6 fence around it, basically some corner posts, the fencing and a hinged door. For the floor, first laying down several inches of rock and then a weather resistant wood deck floating on the rock. And then running the water/shower in. Nothing fancy, but gives you privacy and a place to hose off when you're a mess.

I was even just thinking solar shower bags for the water.

I would look for a used 6 gallon water heater and a 12 volt water pump from an RV. This would make a very nice shower house.

A friend of mine had a nice set up, he used a turkey fryer burner and put a metal garbage can filled with the water and a 12 volt boat bilge pump in the bottom and put it on a chunk of cement patio block so the pump dont melt.He connected the hose to a regular shower head and wired a toggle switch in the shower.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
