Enjoy Outdoor Living to the Fullest!

Showering outdoors under a bright blue sky after a day of playing in the surf, digging in the garden, or taking a long bicycle ride is the ultimate in relaxation. Designer/builder Ethan Fierro celebrates the creativity and whimsical inspiration behind dozens of outdoor showers in this collection of stunning designs, all photographed on location across North America.

Whether you're planning to add a simple wooden shower enclosure to the outside of your beach or lake house, or to build a freestanding shower structure in a private corner of your property, you will find the perfect plan idea. There is also plenty of practical information on basic plumbing and structural requirements, along with suggestions for how to use a wide range of building materials, from stone and wood to metal, glass blocks, tile, and more. And for the cost-conscious builder, Fierro offers fun ideas for repurposing found and recycled materials.

If you've always dreamed of having an outdoor shower, now's the time to open the pages of this book, shed your inhibitions, and take the plunge!
