Last year several groups of women learned and practised their carpentry skills on the carpentry course at Coed Talylan. They did this by building a compost toilet made from rough sawn durable larch timber. These low impact loos now need a home.

The loo! Photo shows the loo product without it’s glass window which will be delivered on the side for its owner to install once the building is in its final home.

The loo comes in a flatpack design and is priced at only £950.

The toilet structure is the basic structure (as per the photo) and does not come with the seat base or any other internal fittings. It is also without a roof covering. This means you can pop any old tin or any other roofing you have kicking about on the structure, making it less expensive for you. If you need any installation advice e.g. on roofing (e.g. if you want a snazzy green roof) get in touch and technical advice will be given promptly. The loos can be based on any old blocks, brick or stone you have. It can be elevated to increase its height for larger bin sizes or make it into a tree bog where no handling of the waste is necessary. The loos all come with different recycled windows.

How the Loo works:

Above: Loo installed on blocks, finished with scraps of corrugated roofing, simple toilet box and seat. Urine is collected in a bin at the back for better composting in a bin system. If the right container is aquired, it can also be tucked in next to the bin. Alternatively, urine can be led directly into a grey water system. A tree bog would typically do away with the urine separation altogether. Here the toilet wood be raised up to give way to a larger compartment below.
