Is anyone using an owner builder toilet where it composts underneath instead of using buckets? I have muscle problems and Im the only one who would probably empty it otherwise.
If anyone has had one going for a few years Id love to know.

A wheelie trash bin equipped with a drain may work with Stars' physical limitations. Several bins may be used in rotation to allow adequate aging. Don't expect thermophillic composting action in such a small pile though.
Another alternative to the bucket system that requires less frequent emptying is a 2'x4'x4' poly cannery tote, equipped with a drain. This bin has a lower profile than a wheelie, and works well in my passive solar outhouse. Photos may be seen at: www.solartoilet.com

I was thinking more a built-onto-the-side-of-the-house double-chambered type set up, I remember one or two references in Humanure.
