Fy Nyth's bathroom

It seems that this is often one of the things people are most curious about. A bathroom in a tiny house. Especially one that is off grid. I finally got a chance to take a few shots of mine. It is so small that getting a good photo is kind of hard I will admit. In the photo above you can see my compositing toilet which I will do a whole post about at some point.

I forgot to get a shot with the mirror cabinet open, but it is a cabinet and holds a lot of stuff. Maybe it's better that I didn't after all. I suppose a woman's bathroom stuff might be best all kept behind a closed door.

There is no sink since I have a sink only a few feet away in the kitchen, but this little shelf my friend built for me is handy so I have somewhere to set things down other than on top of the toilet.

The floor space really is small. It was hard to find a little trash can that would tuck into this space. This one is actually a holder for spare toilet paper, but it fits in nicely and makes a great trash can for me.

The shower which I really don't use. I tend to wash my hair in the sink most of the time anyway and have for years. And since I have to haul all the water I use to my house manually, it's easier to shower when I'm at the gym rather than carrying that much water. So my shower is storage right now for some hanging clothes and my little hand washing machine.


  1. I look forward to your post on your composting toilet. I'm very interested in them.

  2. My husband and I are currently in the process of buildling an off-grid Tiny House in New England- your blog's been an amazing resource so far! I'm sure I'll have more questions for you down the line, but right now I'm wondering what are your bathroom's dimensions? Thanks!

    1. My bathroom is 24 inches wide and 80 inches long if you measure the whole way to the back of the shower stall. Thank you and good luck with your build!

  3. The electric shower warm the water as is made a go at, which means they just desire a chilly water supply to work and are prepared to abandon you requiring to warm water first. Shower Meister
