    Squatter Conversion Renovation

    [​IMG]

    This toilet renovation I would have to give high marks too. Those squat toilets suck to use and I would welcome this Red Neck renovation greatly if I walked in the find this set up.

    Red Neck Toilet Conversion Parts List
    • A wooden toilet seat.
    • Some triangular metal stock.
    • A welder.
    • Some screws.
    • Scrap of plywood.
    • Sander (I hope)
    • Random traffic cone.
    • Duct tape of course.
    • Old Rag for vapour seal.
    Surely built by someone named Bubba..... lol​

    The Lazy Boy Toilet Renovation

    [​IMG]

    The ultimate in toilet comfort. The new Lazy Boy #2 comes with a back recline option perfect for those tuff morning sessions....

    Material List for Lazy Boy Toilet Conversion

    • Lazy Boy Recliner
    • Foam for toilet seat
    • Colour matched porcelain paint set

    This is one of the better toilet renovation I have seen thee past few days. The Lazy Boy recliner is about as high end as you can get. I think this version is using a Toto toilet custom order via Terry's blog site.

    The Chevy Toilet - for those people who always need to go when driving.

    I have nothing clever for this toilet renovation. I like the idea of not having to pull over when nature calls but I think this Chevy Toilet renovation would have been done better if they lowered the tank somewhat.

    Lacking Leg Room

    [​IMG]

    I think this is the side saddle toilet. Clearly no building codes followed or there might have been a chance to use this toilet. I guess if you can stand to pee and have somewhere else to do your other business this might make sense.

    Another toilet with little thought to leg room. I guess they are fine if you use them side saddle....

    The Uber Toilet System

    [​IMG]
    I really like this design. Powder room sink fills the toilets waste water reserve. There is a desk for your computer in front of the toilet that might double as a bidet.

    Green water recycling is growing more and more in Vancouver. It's interesting how these green design and home's using Brown Water or grey water have changed the slopes of the roofs. Many new Vancouver roofs being designed to catch and hold rain water somewhere....

    A dream toilet for many!

    [​IMG]

    I think I might have removed the lid. Nicer recline angle that way....

    I think some fresh tile on the floor and a little clean and this would be Retro Toilet Cubby.

    If your going to wash your back side I would hope you would leave the hose for the spray jet off the floor. I'm thinking this is a good place to use and epoxy grout.

    This toilet renovation from a WC in Saudia Arabia.

    Nice washing systems keep the hose off the floor.

    Maybe someone could clean the toilet. It's looking a little nasty.

    IMHO, that was a post from somebody building a history so when he starts the spams it will not be so obvious due to there being a history. The spams look more obvious if there is no posting history. If you look at his other posts, you will see similar posts trying to pretend to be a normal person. He probably does Raj's S EO stuff during a different part of his day.
