Came in this afternoon in between jobs to find that the toilet is not in the bathroom at present. It has been moved to a bedroom with its supplies while the bathroom floor caulking was being done. It will go back this afternoon but the job of caulking near where it normally sits was much easier with it gone.

Um... Wyatt.......... Do you often have this problem with your toilet moving?

I just got reminded by my wife that there was a sign on the bathroom door. It read " Caution Wet caulking...and no toilet ". This is the fourth time that the toilet has migrated to other rooms. Once for the flooring to be laid, once for the window trim to be done, once to become an en suite since my wife had an inner ear thing making her fall over and now to re do the caulking around the edges of the floor. Actually the en suite was really an in suite since it was in the bedroom.

...and that is just one of the joys of a bucket toilet Ours has moved around for various reasons also. In fact it is not in the bathroom anymore at all but in a corner of what I think is called the utility room just outside the BATH room behind a screen. I have it arranged so that when the screen opens it kind of connects to the BATH room door way and feels a part of it....so company has the security of feeling not to far removed from the BATH room (and the sink for hand washing is near). Many things in our home are not ideal (the house was built by someone else in the eighties with typical materials) but we were able to adapt the two BATH rooms to what we liked....a place to get clean We do have the pee bucket in the downstairs BATH room.... it is emptied daily and replaced. Sometimes it moves around also though......

I love the idea that a complete toilet system can be moved in a couple of minutes for maintenance reasons. Our loveable loo spend a long time in the bay set aside for our pantry in the shed until the walls for the bathroom and toilet could be put up in another bay.

Then the loo was moved in a few minutes into the unplastered and unpainted toilet so I could work on the lining the inside of the pantry.

THEN the loo was moved back into the completed pantry (in between shelves of stored food!) once I had the materials to complete the plastering and painting of the toilet.

After a few days, the loo made its final trip back to the completed toilet room. I like the fact that the loo was sitting in between shelves of food because it emphasised in my mind how sanitary this system is.
