We live near the beach, so an outdoor shower has become a necessity. However, I wish we had put one in when we lived in Ohio. The amount of dirt, sand, and grass tracked into the house during the spring and summer was ridiculous, and it is worse when we factor in heading to the beach two to three times a week.
So, we are making an outdoor shower. This won’t be fancy. We aren’t setting it up for hot water (the showers at the beach are all cold water and that works just fine, especially on hot days). Because we are renting right now we aren’t doing anything that we can’t take with us. BobVilla.com has great, simple instructions for building your own outdoor shower.
