Out House

This is a 1:10 scale out house. I’ll post free plans when they’re complete. Construction is very similar to the Adirondack shelter but simpler, less materials, etc. So it’s a good one to start on. I also plan to weather this one so as to experiment with techniques before attempting on the shelter.

The Base is built first.

Next are walls. I used a mini table saw to cut 15 degree angles and notches for roof trusses. This can also be done with a razor saw and laying the wood over the plans and cutting by eyeballing.

Cut base plate per plans, glue walls in place & use a square to make sure they are upright and then glue in the cross braces in front & back:

Next, fit cross braces for seat & frame out door.

I cut out the planks from the bottom. This probably should have been done before but I have a good excuse. I forgot. also planked the top of the seat & cut the hole. I had to use some small pieces underneath to add bracing to the planks where the hole was cut.

The seat is carved from 1/4″ poplar. The door uses straight pins for nails, sharpie fine point for nail stains, door handle is from an artisan miniatureist.

  1. Which of these signs were in the outhouse in Wisconsin? The cigarette one is VERY familiar. Do you remember those signs? I was too young. I can’t decide if you’re gifted or demented. Maybe some of each. This looks amazing. How is the vole/beaver coming?

    • The only one for sure was the cigarette butt one. I don’t remember all of them but some I do & couldn’t find or they just didn’t work. the pin up girls was my idea. but the outhouse in Wisconsin was the inspiration for sure. I need to get on james about that Vole, He did bring me several bones from various animals so we will be making a dinosaur excavation pit. scale is yet to be determined. I did have a trex incident while building the outhouse, he got a hold of my xacto knife…
