The entire family can take advantage of an outdoor shower, especially when they come back from an afternoon swim in their front lawn or backyard. The availability of a shower enclosure nearby ensures that you can freshen up even if you are outside before stepping inside your home.
When times that your home is filled up with guests and the bathrooms inside your home are occupied, then an outdoor shower will be very handy. Although the choice of what type of shower enclosure to use is entirely yours, wooden shower enclosures look neat and are very cost-effective.
After you have decided on the location of your outdoor shower enclosure, mark the area of the concrete pad which will be the basis of the shower floor which needs to be laid out. Depending on the width of the shower enclosure, use a concrete cement mix to lay the floor of the shower. After pouring the mixed cement on the floor, make sure you smoothen the surface with a trowel, so as to ensure that it does not have any loose ends and bumps.
It is very important when taking a shower to see to it that the water used needs to pass through a hole used for drainage. While building the floor for the shower enclosure, you have to make sure that the water does not stagnate in a particular area. It is a prerequisite for any outdoor shower to have a floor that is slightly sloping to ensure that the water does not stay in one place. To build the enclosure of the outdoor shower, dig up the ground in accordance with the width of the shower area. Use waterproof wooden planks and set them to stand in a rectangular or oval fashion in accordance with your design.
