$50 COMPOSTING TOILET FOR A TINY HOUSE

TOILET

When it comes to tiny house toilets we tiny housers aren’t left with many options. Most tiny housers who I’ve interacted with use Nature’s head Active composting toilet, and that costs a tonne (about $900). That comes to be the second most expensive Tiny house unit after trailer.

Solemn aim of going tiny for a lot of enthusiasts is to obtain financial freedom and if we’re gonna such a huge amount of money only on a single unit, I don’t see how for heaven’s sake are we achieving our aim of financial freedom.

HOW TO BUILD IT

I GOT THE IDEA FROM...

I was browsing Facebook and there it was on my feed. This Guy ‘Mike Myers’ had posted on one of the groups about how he has made a compost toilet for $30 using material from construction dumpsters. It got me excited, I wanted to know how he did it and that’s what I’ll tell you here. A step by step guide to making a tiny house compost toilet of your own.

Just so you know, Mr. Mike Myers deserves all the credit for this post.

Primary idea is to make use of recyclable material as much as possible. You’ll be sourcing a lot of your material from Construction Dumpsters or get it from an active construction sites. Other materials can be sourced from Amazon.

MATERIALS NEEDED

1. PLYWOOD

PLYWOOD

You’ll need plywood to build the frame of the toilet. You can source plywood from construction dumpsters or maybe your friend has it. You won’t need this more than 40 sq. ft.

PRICE: FREE

2. WHITE PAINT

paint

White paint too can be sourced from construction dumpsters. You won’t need a bucket full of white paint.

PRICE: FREE

3. CASTERS

CASTERS

Casters will make your toilet movable, this is of great function since tiny house is already very small and when you’ve the functionality to move your toiler, it becomes easier to access the utilities, electrical, plumbing and so on.

4. BUCKET (5 GALLONS)

bucket

Bucket is the central unit and this is the place where you’ll set up dustbin bags to collect your feces. This will be installed right under the cavity of your toilet seat.

PRICE: FREE

5. PIANO HINGE

PIANO HINGE

You’ll need this to hinge your toilet seat to the base. It can be found on dumpsters or maybe you can reuse an old hinge from another toilet. Anyway, it costs only $9.

6. USB FAN

USB FAN

You’ll use this to vent out the fumes and gases to the outer atmosphere. Just make sure that it is pointed in the right direction and all the fumes go out and not in.

You simply screw it to the wall of the toilet and plug it into a standard USB plug

7. DRYER HOSE

DRYER HOSE

You’ll use this to dissipate heat, fumes, gases, and primarily smells from your toilet to the outside environment

8. TOILET SEAT

TOILET SEAT

You can either reuse it from an existing toilet or buy a new one. Anyway, it doesn’t cost much.

Toilet seat will be attached to the frame of toilet via a hinge and fumes will be exhausted using dryer hose and USB fan.

9. VENT

VENT

You install this on the exterior of your house. You should put some finer screen on there in the vent somewhere so you don’t end up with wasps in the bus. They freaking love those vents for some reason.

10. TOILET FLANGE

TOILET FLANGE

You install this on the hub-end of the fitting, which is inside the house. 4″ toilet flange does the job. Just remember to use the same sized vent and flange

HOW TO BUILD IT

HOW TO BUILD IT
HOW TO BUILD IT

> Use plywood and make frame for your toilet. I haven’t provided any dimensions for toilet because size will depend upon how much space you have and how do you aim to orient it. Depending upon your bucket’s size and other material availability choose a size on your own.

> Carve out 18″ diameter hole in the center where the bucket sits.

> Make a 2″ Diameter hole on your frame where the USB fan will go.

> Make necessary arrangements on your wall for USB Fan to plug into, have a USB Port Outlet.

> Attach casters to the base of the toilet (if you want to make it movable). Mr. Myers did it because he wanted to access bathroom and other utilities and it wouldn’t be possible to access them hadn’t it was movable.

DUMP
TOILET UTILITIES

>In case you are wondering what’s the use of other side area (the compartment), it’s used for sawdust.

>Now, Screw the exhaust (USB) Fan to the toilet wall and channel it out using the dryer hose.

HOW TO BUILD IT

>Affix 4″ Toilet Flange on the inside of your house

>Affix 4″ Vent on the outside of your tiny house. Remember to also fix a screened mesh on the vent so that bugs don’t get in. Warm places are bugs’ best homes.

The job is pretty much complete by now. Enjoy the Show
