Outdoor Sink & Shower


Outdoor shower fixtures that are designed to be installed in cold climates with freezing temperatures are often prohibitively expensive. Not only are they expensive but it is often very difficult to source replacement parts for them if anything fails and since they are mechanical objects subjected to the weather they will always, at some point, fail. We were presented with one of these failed shower fixtures and found after much searching that the manufacturer, a German company, had gone out of business and any replacement parts were non-existent. Our solution was to design a new shower fixture from readily available and easily replaced pipe and fittings. It also came to a fraction of the cost, including labor, of the original. Since then we've designed and installed several. Pictured above is one we installed on Vashon Island.

After creating the outdoor shower above our customer purchased the sink shown below from Second Use in Seattle. Our customer had fallen in love with it and wanted to have it installed outside of the house as well near the shower. This meant of course that it too would have to be freeze proof. We were happy to accomodate. We designed the hot and cold supply piping in a similar way to the shower so that it could easily be shut off and drained just below the sink behind the front white panel.
