Outhouse Well Cover

I wanted to make something to cover my well casing, so I decided to build a miniature outhouse. It’s built from cedar ship-lap siding with cedar shakes on the roof and has a walnut half-moon on the door. It hides the well casing perfectly, and will look even better when my wife gets some colorful flowers planted around it.

Good looking building but it seems so wrong, a crapper over the well!

Is that a Green Bay Packer shirt?

Very nicely done.
You can use the leftover cedar and make the planters for her too. A wheelbarrow sized to match, wagon, or ??

Nice work. Years ago I had a mock up outhouse that held my shop vac. County finally came out to investigate. Guy laughed till he cried when I showed him what it was.
