Bare 8x12ft deck to create a level surface for a single-person camp. To get a sense of scale and use, adding in some home from other Montheim designs like the rocket stove and dry toilet, along with room for a foam mattress.

Urine Diverting Dry Composting Toilets

In my research I found that urine on its own is generally sanitary, and a great fertilizer when diluted. Solid human waste requires more careful handling to ensure harmful bacteria are discouraged; by keeping it dry, odors are mitigated. Dry toilets and composting toilets are managed differently but both start with a toilet. The smallest designs use buckets and a special toilet bowl.
