How to Compost your Poop: The Humanure Handbook


If you’re seriously considering living off the grid, building an outhouse, or building a tiny house/cabin.. Then you might be considering the option of composting toilets.

This way not only are you helping the environment by making good use out of your poo instead of flushing it down with clean water or even worse improperly disposing human waste. After you read this book you’ll understand how to properly compost your own human waste and even better how you can make good use of it!

If you’re a complete beginner to how composting toilets work I explain it all quite simply in this post right here.

If you’re wanting to explore other toilet options, too, check out this post by Cori.

Another benefit you can get out of using a composting toilet is that you don’t have to install complicated plumbing for your cabin, tiny house or outhouse. It can be a surprisingly simple and inexpensive toilet system.

Epic Tiny Cabin featured in Handmade Houses


This epic tiny cabin is featured in Richard Oldsen‘s Handmade Houses book.

I’m always fanatical about unique structures like this. Vermont seems to be a great place to build small houses like this.

There are not really any building codes so folks can get as creative as they want. I encourage you to order a copy of Richard Oldsen’s book over on Amazon if you want to see more unique and beautiful houses like that in a book you can hold in your hands.

If you liked this tiny cabin you’ll love our free daily tiny house newsletter!

Have you ever pictured yourself living in a tiny cob house?

This particular one was featured in Lloyd Kahn’s Tiny Homes Simple Shelter.

The home was featured in Mother Earth News in an article written by Lloyd Kahn.

If you want to explore more of Kahn’s work you can read his blog here or buy his tiny house book here.

Have you ever considered any form of natural building like using cob or straw-bale? How about a tiny cob house? Or would you prefer to go with a stick-built structure on a foundation or on wheels? Looking forward to reading your thoughts on that in the comments.
