The Outdoor Shower
Designer/builder Ethan Fierro celebrates summer with this collection of original outdoor shower designs he’s discovered from coast to coast. For homeowners who want to build their own outdoor showers, he offers dozens of examples to choose from, ranging from a simple showerhead on the side of a cottage to semi-detached and freestanding structures. All are pictured in stunning color photographs with accompanying text describing the design and material elements involved.
Beginning with the basics, Fierro includes an overview of basic plumbing and structural requirements, along with suggestions for incorporating a wide range of building materials, including stone, wood, metal, frosted glass blocks, earth, concrete, tile, stucco, and landscape vegetation. His plans are environmentally sound and mindful of cost-saving techniques, with ideas for repurposing found and recycled materials. Fierro exhibits his own inspired aesthetic in the final chapter with illustrated plans for six fantasy showers, including a tree house, a vine-enclosed frame, a stained-glass nautilus, and an underground cavity with a hole for sky-viewing.
