We build a cottage toilet: projects, drawings, dimensions

In this article, examples of country toilets are presented: cabin drawings, their average sizes, some recommendations for construction. The design can be different: there are projects rectangular, triangular, diamond-shaped. Choose the form, then the material, and you can start building. There are drawings, the building is not the most complicated. Just keep in mind that the sizes are given for people of medium height and complexion. They can easily be changed without changing the design.

The most common variant of a garden or garden toilet is a rectangular structure. It is also called a "birdhouse" because in the version with a single-pitched roof it very much resembles it.

In the drawing of the toilet, shown in the photo above, a 40 mm board was used for finishing. The construction is quite inexpensive. Doors can be made from the same boards, fastened with slats at the top, bottom and obliquely. Hinges can be placed outside - granary, having issued a structure in a deliberately rough style.

Despite the fact that the building is utilitarian, if desired, it can be given an attractive appearance and the birdhouse will turn into a quite attractive small building. For example, you can make a small mill out of this building.

The same birdhouse, but from the frame - is a completely different kind. Especially harmoniously everything will look, if the building on the site is built (or will be built) also from a log.

For regions where wood is a luxury, and spend it on building a toilet is irrational, the same design can be sewn with other material. For example, the frame is covered with any sheet material - plywood, fiberboard, GVL. On them outside you can lay the finishing material - tile or decorative stone. Even more budgetary option - to cover with profiled sheeting.

Toilet type "Shalash" (triangular)

This toilet is a triangle. The side walls are simultaneously the slope of the roof. You can build such a toilet with your own hands in a few hours. Drawings with approximate dimensions are given in the picture below. In them, you can and need to make adjustments: all dimensions are for people of medium build.

If you need wider doors, you can not expand the base, which in this project is so considerable, but to make doors of a non-standard shape - as in the figure to the right.

Sheathing of finishing materials in the toilets "Shalash" is carried out only in front and behind. On the side surfaces lay the roofing material. You can use any, but it looks good soft tile or polymeric slate.

In the photo to the right, the crate is made under sheet roofing material - plastic slate was used - it has different colors, it is relatively inexpensive, it is mounted simply - with nails with gaskets.

If you plan to use soft roofing material - roofing material, bituminous shingles or something similar, the lath makes a solid - from a sheet of moisture-resistant plywood, particle board, gypsum board. They are attached to the carcass by screws, roofing materials are laid on top.

The lozenge-shaped house for the toilet in the garden is not bad. Outside the frame, you can cut a half-round small diameter, a lining of a large thickness, a block house, a regular board. If you use a board, nail it not in butt-end, and applying a couple of centimeters on the lower, like a spruce cone. You can, of course, and butt, but the appearance will be not the same ...

The main snag in any small wooden toilet is to secure the doors well. The door frame is the heaviest part, especially on the side where the doors are fastened. To fasten the door rails to the frame of the frame use studs - so the fastening will be reliable.

From this simple, in general, the construction can be made a latrine in any style. For example, in Dutch. The decoration is simple - light plastic, on top of which are packed the characteristic beams, painted with stain. Pay attention to the glass inserts and the fact that the roof of this specimen is made of polycarbonate. If polycarbonate is multi-layered, it should not be hot)))

Warm toilet

Use a toilet with a wall in the same board in the summer is quite comfortable. But not all dachas are visited only in the warm season. For the autumn-spring period, it is necessary at least some kind of insulation, which will block drafts.

In this case, the design of the toilet is no different. Only the dimensions increase by 5-10 cm more: the skin will be double - outside and inside, and a lining is laid between the lining. It will be necessary to heat the doors, too - the double doors are too heavy for such a construction, but from inside they can be beaten with a piece of linoleum, dermantinum and other well-washable material.

Combined shower-toilet

The second building in the dacha is a shower. And if so, why build two separate structures, if they can be built under one roof. Several drawings of country cottages with a shower for self-construction are published below.

Just provide for this when planning and manufacturing supports for the construction.
