An outdoor warm shower is a life changer! What a pleasure to take a shower under the sky in the morning or after a jump in the ocean… truly indoor-outdoor living at its best.
Some showers can be just a faucet coming out of the wall… and outdoor showers are a pleasure in any weather — I take multiple showers a day when it’s hot — even just to rinse my feet and get the sand off the back of my legs. In the cooler months, I love taking a warm shower, even in the rain. The outdoor shower is a much-appreciated part of my daily ritual. I like the way my upstairs bathroom stays so clean since we use it infrequently. You don’t track sand into the house.
Use eco-friendly soap like Doctor Bronner’s and the water sustains the ginger and ferns.
Outdoor warm showers are great for dogs — and they don’t shake all over the carpet and dry off by rubbing on the furniture… not that I know any dogs who would wipe their wet ears and red dirt on my mom’s white couch.

My husband built ours on our condo back patio- it even has a draining system. He did hire a licensed plumber and have a buddy help with woodwork…

An outdoor warm shower is definitely a necessary addition to any condo or home. I would say it gives a lot of bang for your buck and is one of those little things you will appreciate once you have access…and realize later that it was a big part of your life!
