After you have been building a house for 6+ years you find that there are some things you just don't need anymore. We have reached that point and this summer we started to sort those things out. Craig's list has become my friend and thus the shed, yard and house have become cleaner and less cluttered.
On thing on the list of "we don't need anymore" was our outhouse. This beautiful out building was the first structure on our property and was used as a working and efficient outhouse for the summer we framed up our house. Once the toilet was installed we migrated inside for these needs, even if that meant we had to haul water to flush the toilet for the next two years while we waited for our well.
All that being said, we haven't had to use this lovely outhouse for the past 5+ years and to me that meant it was time to clear it out. Even if you have come to visit us you probably have never even seen our outhouse. It sits on the very far edge of the property. It sit along the edge of a walking trail and Josh has seen the neighbors use it in a time of need but that wasn't enough incentive to hold on to it. I was putting it on Craig's list.
My mother and Josh were sure it wouldn't sell. Come on, who would buy a USED outhouse. Let along a 6+ year old USED outhouse?
But guess what. It did sell. In just under 3 days we got a call. Cabins had been build, renters had moved in and the landowner had run out of time to build an outhouse himself. This was perfect.
And so it will go down that I am the person who was able to sell an used outhouse on Craig's list, for $85 no less. Yeah, I would say that is something that really would only happen in Alaska. Wonder what the neighbors are going to do now?
