Great suggestion! Outdoor showers can be a low-maintenance
addition to many different styles of homes. They make the most sense if you
already have a frequently-used backyard or a pool. Outdoor showers can run the
gamut in investment, from a mere $100 to thousands and thousands. It’s all
about what kind of look and feel, that you’re going for. Check out this light
and airy DIY solution

Sounds like a composting toilet would be ideal for you. This is one place to start if you are unfamiliar with them...
