DIY: Wood-Round Path

When your family cottage doesn’t have flushing toilets, an out house with a view is a must. This summer Reid and his father built this amazing outhouse right on the water. After the new out house was built, Reid and I cleared a path and decided to jazz it up with a wood-round path made from some sliced up wood rounds and some reclaimed bricks. The sliced up wood rounds were cut up with a chainsaw in roughly the same thickness. We love how it turned out. Next summer we will likely lift up the wood rounds and put landscaping cloth underneath so weeds wont grow around the wood rounds and bricks. That will help keep the maintenance down when it comes to the path.

Isn’t that a gorgeous outhouse? I mean if you have to use an outhouse it might as well have a breath taking view!

What do you think of the idea? Does it work for the space?
