Default ok lets tork loo's - story maybe dunno?

yeh ok so some may say i been torkin S-H-I-T-E lately anyway but then
hey who am i? everyones entitled to their observations huh?

right now we have a couple real solid down to earth down under pc'ers
chattin'! way to go. ok i digress so lets go to the topic:

loo's/toilets/outhouses/thunder boxes/throne-rooms/shrines/seats of
power and learning, ok whatever description fits or put your own in
ok!

we opted for a nature-loo (no they don't pay me and along with
greenfiled piecemaker shredders i probably wish they did i may be able
to afford better quality red cordial), why because the design fits the
K-I-S-S theory (i won't repeat what KISS stands for some get upset)
any way price also played a part, there are or were 3 others in the
field at the time but then you be the judge.

n/l also comes under verstatile, if you need to increase holding
capacity (lol) all you need do is buy another drum, oh did i mention
there is a guy in brissy who sells plans for a home made version of
n/l (whoops hope i can say that). ok so one of the others that
resembles a carousel needs all the boxes to be replaced by bigger
sizes through a range of 3 sizes from smallest to largest as your need
for capacity increases and as someone said the carousel gets out of
balance with 5 boxes on it when 1 box is full and the others are
empty, now i didnt say that and that lady also said it seemed to have
trouble handling the amount ot toilet paper generated by an office
situ' with mainly ladies present. um n/l seems to handle our paper
uses very well indeed and never gets out of balance.

ok you reckon lens torks shite yeh well i might but hey at the end of
the day or maybe early in the morning where would you be without it
hey?? pretty sick i guess.

anyway as we (me & mine)prepare for re-entry to the 'burbs, lens
thinkin' hey do i want to return to that yuppie feeling (there he goes
again) of pushing that little button as i drop the lid on my
contribution to society. guess those that know me would say nup! well
you are right i am already looking for systems i can use without
additions to an other wise badly designed for aussie conditions
european inspired queenslander with verandahs yuppie acceptable house,
phew what a mouth full.

hey speaking of horses for courses the house me and my believed
devised for qld well aussie conditions certainly seems to work a hell
of a lot better than those romantic smoke drizziling out of a chimney
wooden bungalows that look european and those lovable freeze the
monkeys off a brass ball queenslanders houses that is. our close
neighbours this morn' when we were buying our supply of eggs from them
tells me that at 8 am he still has 0c in his modern brick qld
verandahs all round bunglaow (and that was in his living area), when
we had 14c inside our house after a minus 1.5 (app 8c inside) on the
patio before the sun.

anyway i digress yet again oh did i suggest make a cuppa before
beginning this read not too late now is it?

anyway so i have come across with help from others a couple of links
to ways that may make permies world wide get rid of their water
guzzling society acceptable systems. i mean when are we going to learn
especially in australia water just can't be wasted washing away waste.

well i mean when is this water deprived world going to wake up hey can
you imagine how much DRINKING water gets wasted flushing colured water
away???? makes just as much sense as yuppies moving into rural with
their spoilt brats on noisy polluting 2 stroke trail bikes decemating
the quiet rural life of others, and running horses with no thought to
the environment or growing food, well they can afford it hey after all
they are the consumable society that we all pay for. you know what
gets me they move away from the built up scenerio only to bring their
bad habits with them (you know cats, 4 wheel drives and the desire to
turn anywhere from 10 to 100 acres into lawn) and that starts with
their choice of house design and lack of land management skills.

so here are those 2 links i have take a look i'm looking for opinions:

http://www.barefootengineering.com/

http://users.easystreet.com/ersson/sawdust.htm

well that's enuf poo 4 now heh lol?

oh i did forget to say my neighbours house gets the sun app' 15 to 20
min's before us, but then i expect if we are into permaculture we are
also into sustainable living? houses that is.

take care

len

Howdy Len, i'm offering my opinion here

That is not a particularly big chamber and it takes 6 months to breakdown -
i'm not sure if that was in-situ - but i'm thinking it would probably be
full before it broke down. On the other hand, if you have to cart it around
to a compost area it's probably a bit on the large side to be manouvering
with ease - i have a memory from childhood of the pan-man slinging a full
can up onto his shoulder with disasterous consequences that have put me off
dunnies for the rest of my life! *rolls eyes*

http://users.easystreet.com/ersson/sawdust.htm


FWIW, if you have to lug around a bucket of crap for composting purposes -
don't put it on your shoulder firstly, secondly this would be a/ cheaper to
set up and b/ easier to move and empty every couple of days or once a week.
I know 'Humanure' was available as a free download somewhere on the net, i
don't have the link sorry, so if you haven't read it already, give it a look
through so you can suss out how to compost it without starting a war with
the neighbours )


well that's enuf poo 4 now heh lol?

g'day andrea,

thanks for the input that barefoot one is a newy around the traps not
sure of it myself looked simple but.

i have the humanure book so will be looking into that graham gave me a
link to an essay on sawdust composting of human waste so that will
perused, just that after using something that for me was a good
evironmently system i don't want to go back to using valuable drinking
water as most do to flush waste especially waste water down to a
poorly managed sewerage system..

yes i remember the dunny man each week with the remains of his cargo
dripping down his back, i also remember that it never had any adverse
effect on our health and certainly not on the health of our water
ways.

yes ok i drifted a bit but it amazes me that we live in a country and
still stick to 200+ year old ideas of housing and then try and make
them comfortable, i doubt i will find anything tlike this inthe burb's
they simply just don't promote them or build them because they aren't
rmantic or fashionable. it amzed me that here where our neighbours at
8am with zero on their thermometer and our coldest before dawn inside
was around 8c.

thanks

len
