Had to do a double take.... the shower set-up is the same as I used back in '90 when I was remodeling the bathroom in an old victorian in Iowa. The kids were less than thrilled.

I have electricity, a wood stove and a toyo stove. We have pipes in the walls for if we ever get some type of plumbing. Have a little closet that we eventually might put in a composting toilet, but the outhouse works fine. We also have a 50 gal water tank that we thought we could put a pump up to it. Right now we have 4 five gallon water containers and wash our dishes in tubs. Eventually we are planning on a sink which we can cover with a piece of wood for when we need more counter space. Showers and laundry are done at the laundromat a half mile down the road. We live here full time. It took a while to get the hang of it, especially because we have only a 4 wheeler and snowmachine. Husband is retired and I work off and on, so it is is laid back here. There are others here with wells, but get drinking water at the laundromat, or have larger holding tanks. It costs $85 a month to have city water piped to your house, but we built our house and it is $100 a foot to have pipes laid to your house.

It is good to know you can actually be comfortable in it full time. My only concern was being able to get water in all the time. No way to put in utilities. As far away from anyone who has any, it would way more money than a little inconveneince ( sp still doesn't right, oh well) of hauling. My thought when I bought the land was, heck people had to do it without snowmachines and 4 wheelers so surely I can do it with machines. Maybe someday there will enough people nearby to put in utilities but I hope not. I like my privacy. I do worry, sometimes, that if something major happenned it would take forever and be a pain-in-the tush for help to reach me. I like your idea of the board over the sink. Don't why I didn't think of it since I have lived in RVs before. When I was in Az I lived in a "mobile Home" and there wasn't enough space so I put a large and very thick cutting board over the propane stove. As long as the stove wasn't hot it worked great. I thought about a RV sink but they are too small, in my opinion, so I went with the deepest sink I could find. A little pricey but I figure heck wht not pay a little more and have the niceties I want since this is the last build/remodel I plan on doing.
