Hi everyone -
This week, after an architect's meeting with Chris, we've been working on some modifications to our stump house plan. Since Bernard and I will be sharing the house, we decided to split the upstairs into two bedrooms, go without a bathroom for now, and build a compost loo in the garden.
So, we started with a staircase to access the upper floor. This was made with polystyrene packaging cut into strips, covered with masking tape, then kitchen roll, and painted. There's a new balcony leading to a door cut into the room.
|The roof was removed for alterations|
Then we moved on to making the loo. In true eco-friendly, recycling style, we used a milk carton top for the lid, an old curtain ring for the seat and stirrers as cladding for the toilet and walls.
Here's Bernard demonstrating how the lid lifts
and standing in front of the door (as he hasn't fitted a lock yet!) The door hinges are toothpaste tube strips, covered with masking tape and painted black.
Once it stops raining, we'll take it outside and put into position. Then it's onto landscaping, but you'll have to wait 'til next week, to see that. I hope you've had as much fun this week as I have.
Love for now, and happy WOYWW, Eric (Eco Warrior), Bernard and Chris xx
