A do-it-yourselfer’s tiny house has been described as “perfect,” but the bathroom amenities put others off.
While the bougie apartment is delightful, for many the outside toilet is beyond pale.
But for this homeowner, it wasn’t a big deal. Even the vegetable patch shower just suited the territory.
This micro-lot was shaped like a shepherd’s hut and was situated in a clearing at the edge of the forest.
It was covered with wooden tiles, which gave it an immediate appeal home spun appeal.
Steps led to a covered porch, a portal to a beautiful wood paneled interior.
Nothing was missing here: sink, refrigerator and cooking facilities.
There were huge windows that looked out onto the beautiful countryside and the bed was laden with pillows.
It was cleverly designed with under-bed storage and furniture that could be disassembled and tucked away.
The effect was rounded off by a wood stove.
But for many, the dream ended when this homeowner asked viewers to check out the toilet facilities.
She stepped outside, down the steps, circled her house and drew back a curtain.
Here, no matter what the weather, was the toilet.
But it wasn’t a flush toilet, more of a commode-like toilet, complete with buckets underneath to catch all sorts of unspeakable things.
Everything in the vegetable patch was now exposed to the shower.
The commenters were a mix of people wanting a similar dream home and people on the other end of the spectrum who lost interest when they saw the bathroom fixtures.
One person was a fan: “That’s me. Not a big five-acre mansion and not an expensive yacht. I just need to be with the people I love.”
This second person was also enthusiastic: “It’s perfect. I love it all.”
“It’s so beautiful. Maybe one day I’ll be able to live like this. Congratulations,” said a third.
But this viewer wasn’t convinced: “I want a tiny house, but I also want a toilet, a real one.”
This person wasn’t a fan either: “I loved it down to the bathroom part.”
