Two-Story Outhouse

sign says:"Thanks for visiting The World Renown Historical Two Story Outhouse Outhouses are original pieces of history. They are disappearing with no proof that they ever existed. Outhouses were once an important part of everyday life, and their historic contribution should be recorded for prosperity. The outhouse is a fast disappearing piece of architecture. The young people hardly know anything about these little structures and have no understanding of the lifestyle that went with them. Preserving history is our goal"

From the pictures included here (they are glaring, too much sun that day these were taken, chatting with a few locals and several of our camping friends as well) ...this was a 2 story home ...separate families on each level ...holes are not over each other, just a path or place to walk out over each other to use the restroom, so it is officially a 2 story outhouse ... for your information or a better explanation. Hope that does make some sense?

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take Care! Beth ( ;

Hello Beth,

I would have never guessed this was an outhouse. 2 story outhouse, the top level has a balcony? Happy Sunday, enjoy your day! Wishing you a happy new week!

Oh my! I have spent many years of my life using an outhouse. I’m not so sure I like the idea of a two story one though.
