Backyard Office: Honey Bucket

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Backyard Office

This is the kind of thing many people can only dream about.  I have seen Honey Bucket’s at fair grounds, Amos Lee concerts, and even dog parks, but now we have one in our driveway.  Wow, how exciting.  Not to mention convenient.  We don’t even have to bother going in the house now…  I can’t think of a better way to spend $500 friggin’ dollars.  What a waste.  Although, it is better than the alternative I suppose.  At least that is what I will keep telling myself.  If you find yourself in our neighborhood and you really have to go, fear not.  Now you don’t have to buy a $4 latte or a BigMac just to use the restroom.  You can use our Honey Bucket.  Just make sure you clean up after yourself when you’re done.

Last night, just before dinner, I looked out the window and asked Nichelle if she would watch Isla for a second.  ”The light is really nice right now.” I told her.  I threw on my shoes, grabbed a camera, and went out front to photograph the beautiful new green plastic toilet on our driveway.  I even moved around it for a few minutes trying different angles. ” This is what it has come to” I thought to myself.  After all the hard work these past 10 years, I am photographing a portable toilet.  Perfect.  My work here is done.

Best post yet on the construction project so far. Love it.

I have been following your blog for quite a while and as I’m also turning a part of the house into an office (more interior decorating than actual construction work), I found your last few posts very entertaining. Particularly this one… although I was a bit disappointed to only see one shot of the toilet :)

You said “What a Waste!” Hahahahaha!!!!
Around here they’ve been known to have “B&B” on them, or even, my favorite one spotted called “Kerplunk.” But “Honey Bucket” sounds so much nicer.
