Life at the Lake ~ Outdoor Shower!

We've FINALLY had a run of beautiful weather and hubs turned on the water to the
outdoor shower - YAY! He built it on our deck overlooking the
lake - crafted the frame from copper pipes, plumbed it all himself
and I found this great copper rain shower head online a couple of years ago. 
It's aged beautifully and is one of my favorite things about
summer at the lake!

He also made this sweet little copper soap dish and drain - it's verdigris is gorgeous!
There is also a copper pipe 'hook' for your towel on the other
side of this post - he thought of everything!

An old knob is a fun addition. 
The water has one heat setting (adjustable from inside only)
so you want to be sure of the temperature before you step under the shower :).

  1. Very, very cool. I like how your new shower is a combination of both repurposed and purchased material (i.e. shower head), most of which are copper. Copper has the widest applications, because of how grand it looks like and how malleable it is. And now you have copper pipes, copper shower heads, and copper soap holders to fit the theme. Cheers!
