If your garden office or summer house is right at the back of the garden, you may want to consider the possibility of adding a toilet. To do this, we will need to install a macerator, which will reduce the waste to a pulp, and then we need to gain access to a soil pipe to take the waste to the main sewer.

A simple outhouse consists of a hole in the ground covered by basic wooden structure to provide privacy and shelter for the user. It isn't difficult to turn an outhouse into an attractive feature. It isn't the only type of outdoor toilet, but it's the easiest to build, and it's movable.
If your garage is on a concrete pad, you can always break through the pad to install the drainpipes and patch it when you're finished. An easier alternative, though, would be to set the toilet and shower on raised platforms so you can run the waste pipes through the wall and route them underground when you get outside.

A type of lime called calcium hydroxide, available at feed stores, can be dropped down the hole to reduce odor. But lime might halt decomposition. Ash from a wood-burning stove is better for decomposition, but less effective on odors.
An earth closet is better known today as a composting toilet. By the late 1800s, many workers' homes in industrialised areas of Britain were built with outside toilets but it was well into the 20th century before indoor facilities were finally a familiar sight in houses, regardless of the occupants' class.

The conservatory needs to be able to operate as a useable bathroom space, so you'll need to think about ventilation, fire safety, and the structural stability of the room.
