I used the space between my house and water tank for my outdoor shower.

Starting when I first decided to wrap my ugly tank using black bamboo fencing screens ( cut and wired from behind so they curve ),
I then just changed the curve from a convex to a concave one and secured the bamboo to the shower post and then to timber battens screwed to the house wall.

Finished over a weekend and not requiring a plumber for the job ( I much prefer an outdoor shower to be a natural cold water experience ), it’s built right beside the existing garden tap - now fitted with a brass 2 way tap outlet : one for the shower plumbing, and one for a garden hose.

The floor is raised, but built leaving a gap between the timber floor frame/ retaining wall and the house brick walls, and a pipe is located under the pebble floor which drains water away to the adjacent garden bed.
