Kate’s wardrobe consists of hangers under the stairs, and the couch was custom made for Willem to lift the top pad, and find his clothes underneath. The finishing touches involve a light made from a copper Trademe part, fitted to become a lamp, and a composting toilet, which I was far too fired up about.
The composting toilet sounds much like a Harry Potter broomstick; it’s a Separett Villa 9000.
Are you sitting down? Prepare yourselves for a detailed composting toilet description.
The urine goes into a septic tank where Kate and Willem’s waste water goes too, and the ‘number twos’ are emptied into a wheelie vermiculture worm farm every 2-4 months. Once the ‘brown stuff’ has broken down into compost, it is wheeled to the top of the section to be collected and used as compost elsewhere.
Maybe I’m crazy, but knowing your waste helps things to grow rather than saying goodbye to it with one flush, makes me want to install a composting toilet immediately.
