A hole of 40 cm depth is dug in a chosen place, with dimensions of 1x1 m in plan. Its bottom is covered with a layer of gravel, gravel, which improves the absorption of soapy water by the soil. From above, in the corners, cinder blocks are laid, leveling their upper surfaces by level.
Engaged in the manufacture of the frame. From boards (cross-section 15x3 cm) make a base measuring 1x1 m in size. Place it on top of cinder blocks. A bar with a cross section of 10x7 cm is fixed vertically in the corners (at least 2 m in length, but people who will wash themselves in the shower, taking into account a margin of 20 ... 30 cm, are finally chosen for the greatest height).
The racks in the gap and from above are connected by cross members. Reinforce the top with additional cross members that will hold the liquid tank.
The arranged frame is sheathed on the sides (exclude the entrance) with a lining, a raised beam, a blockhouse, arranging 2 ... 3 mm gaps between the slats. The latter will compensate for swelling of the material when wet.
All wooden parts of the shower are primed with bioprotective antifungal impregnation. After drying, paint. Use acrylic varnish (make at least three layers).
They have a water tank on the roof of the structure. Its volume should be approximately 100 liters. Connect an adapter to it, a curved pipe, attach it to the upper crossbars. A mixer is put on the free end.
They lay on top of the base a wooden grate, on which they stand while taking a shower. They close the entrance with a curtain, equip the shower inside, placing shelves, hooks.
