Composting Toilets?

I had heard of these but it seemed like a lot of work and the one I saw previously required a huge (and very hot) compost pile. Thanks to Heather for sharing this video on Facebook, or I wouldn't be aware that there is a much more do-able option. I really like this idea. And how much more practical than an outhouse? I may have to talk the husbeast into installing one of these at our next property.

This is a pretty good series. Although it is a bit alarmist for my tastes. I saw one for worms and rain barrels from a gal who lives in Port Orchard from this same video series.

They mentioned The Humanure Handbook in this video. Have you read it? My fried in Canada did this same thing in her small cabin (she built all herself btw!) and said it really was ZERO odor. She just covered the poop with wood shavings and for some reason (aerobic vs. anaerobics) if you let the poop breathe instead of smothering it you don't smell it! LOL

I am definitely going to be installing one of these on my homestead. Must get husbeast to watch the video.
