The Easehouse features two toilets of different sizes – one for children and one for adults. This height differentiation is achieved with a diagonal step in between the two. The folded down roof serves a variety of functions in addition to giving the well-ventilated outdoor toilet aesthetic appeal that is an enormous improvement on the standard issue porta-potty.

In order to ensure that the Easehouse’s sharp geometry doesn’t contrast too deeply with its soft arboreal surroundings, the team at LAGADO installed glossy green betanplex side panels that reflect shadows of leaves and trees as well as sunshine, while the fold down roof provides what they call a “projection plane” for the trees overhead. Best of all, the whole thing can be dismounted and installed elsewhere.

    I really like the look of this portable restroom. I love how it really blends in with the surroundings. How long would one of these portable restrooms be set up? Are they just for big events? http://www.dfportabletoilets.com/products.shtml
