A Modern Washroom

Why would one need this washroom? Do you remember that A-frame Bunk Cabin on our list? It didn’t have a bathroom, so this washroom can be a pretty good building companion for it.

How about using it for washing up after mowing the lawn? Or providing an outdoor shower for a cold plunge after using a sauna?

You can also combine it with a toolshed turning it into a perfect man-cave or hobby room. In any case, it looks very cool and definitely worth considering for your yard or vacation property with that A-frame bunk cabin.
