It would certainly be a courageous decision to go tiny -- but how rewarding!! Thanks for the inspiration.

@jpp221 - I've known people who created "humanure" this way--with a very sturdy bucket beneath a comfortable seat. It's not a legal or health issue where I've seen it, though it might be in a dense residential area. As with any animal wastes, there are issues in attracting wild critters once you dump it outside, and specific procedures if you want to use it later as compost (as is common throughout China). Sawdust does a remarkably good job in handling odors. I was surprised and impressed when I used this set-up. Much better than a chamber pot!

Last year, every houzz story had in it the seemingly obligatory blurred photo of an urban hipster or hipster-ette walking laterally through the shot.

I have found houzz's editorial soft spot of 2015: this is apparently the year of the cat or dog photo. Every story.

Ha! I just did this earlier this morning, before reading the article! Of course, at the time it wasn't at all what I intended to do before my ritual first cup of strong coffee but the cat had a run through a larger planter during the night. I thought the decapitated plant's leafs might make for an attractive center piece and quickly rushed to save them. So it is that I am here to tell you the green leafs make a nice center piece. It amazes me because I had never considered this sort of focal arrangement before.
