The new toilet block has external and dividing strawbale walls to make up three cubicles for male, female and disabled compost toilets. A ramp provides wheelchair access to the disabled cubicle. Hand wash basins have been installed on the dividing walls. Recycled materials from the recovery centre have been used were possible. The walls are rendered with three coats of lime plaster. The composting toilets are from Nature Loo.
And now to some photos of this quite fancy, very comfortable – strawbale walled – compost toilet block.
