hey fella's! i am proud as a peach of my shower invention.
i torn that canvas off the porch that someone else built.
its sure been great to get a shower when we need one.
i figure in winter.we will have a wood stove.
we can warm our water up on it.and get an old wash tub
and fill it and take a bath in front of the hot wood stove fire.
now that sounds pretty good to me.

Hi folks, here are some photo's of a shower I put up this past month. cost was about $25 for the Carboy tanks, everything else was left over lumber from previous projects or found in the woods. The 'Wattle' work on the walls is only partial at this point, but should progress the next few Cabin weekends. The washing station in front evolved during the build. I may turn it 180 degrees to be more like the set up of MtnManDan above. I prefer the Carboys (from Uline) to the solar shower bags and have been impressed with the flow. The black paint warms the water up to a nice shower temp during the day. For the cabin, this has been an absolute game changer, wish I did it years ago.

Wow, this is the second site to ask for my shower pics! I'm afraid I'd need a wide angle lens if you know what I mean.

Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more!

Shower on one side and outdoor kitchen sink on the other side...

275 gallon tote to collect rain water, Eccotemp L5 to heat it, Shureflow pump powered by a 12 volt deep cycle battery and charged by a solar panel to pump the water... It has been working well for over a year... Unless it's super cold outside and then the Eccotemp has a hard time making the water hot enough.

I'm planning on a Zodi shower, too! Indoors. Haven't decided on the model yet, exactly, but you really can't go wrong by trying the battery-operated one at only $40 new! (Cabela's price)

What great, creative ideas, everyone!!! Seriously impressive! I think there's a shower and solution here for every situation!

Here's our little shower, right now we use solar shower bags but have a tank less hot water heater and 12 volt pump for a later update.

Before we bought our cabin, we frequently camped on crown land lakes accessible by 4x4 road. For the lady, (and also for fun & a challenge) me and a buddy rigged up a camp shower that provides unlimited hot water. The water is heated using a coaxial coil heat exchanger, with one side drawing lake water out to the shower using a 12v shur-flo pump, the other side passing coolant from the truck's engine by means of quick-connect couplings on a heater hose. It worked amazing even with icy lake water, the only unfortunate thing being the truck needed to be running for it to work. I've been meaning to get the system back up and running at the cabin, and build a little shower enclosure with room to park nearby. So far bathing has been lake-based though, but as the kids get older and the urgent repairs/renos are completed, longer stays are likely and little luxuries like this will be welcome.

Made a tweak to our off grid shower setup. Just upgraded from a battery powered shower to the Eccotemp L5. Very impressed so far

Found new-in-box outdoor shower at thrift shop at end-of-season price! Won't attempt using it til June, I suspect... Made to fit a garden hose. Will build enclosure and try gravity feed from a raised water tank. Also might consider running with 12 volt pump.

Assembled at home since cabin time is precious...

My wife got caught by the neighbours showering on our deck so I had to bump up building a shower on my priority list. It took me a couple of weekends build, transport to the cabin and assemble. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Sorry about the rotation of the pics. I tried 5 different ways to fix it and none of them worked.
