Outdoor Dry Composting Lavatory - Home Living Luxury

Perfect addition to any glamping site, when combined with our glamping pods.

Introducing our Outdoor Dry Composting Lavatory, a discreet and eco-friendly sanitation solution that seamlessly blends with any natural environment. This rustic-looking toilet offers a hassle-free and environmentally responsible way to manage waste.

The ecological composting process is straightforward and eco-conscious. Within the toilet, you'll find a wooden box with a designated area for the toilet itself and a separate section for a bucket filled with sawdust, which serves as a natural and odour-reducing composting material. The system operates without the need for water, digging holes, or the use of any harmful chemicals, making it a sustainable choice for remote outdoor locations.

Emptying the composting toilet is a simple task. When the bucket with sawdust reaches capacity, it can be easily removed and emptied into a designated composting area, ensuring that your waste is recycled in an eco-friendly manner. This toilet's roof is covered with bitumen shingles, which can be customized in three colour options: black, green, or red.

For added personalisation, the exterior of the toilet can be painted in a colour of your choice.

Experience the convenience of an outdoor toilet that not only blends harmoniously with its surroundings but also contributes to a cleaner and more sustainable environment.

   

Plumbing & Electrical

It's essential to note that our Outdoor Dry Composting Lavatory is intentionally designed without plumbing or electrical connections. This choice is in line with the environmentally friendly and low-impact nature of this toilet. However, we understand that specific situations may require additional features like lighting. In such cases, the lavatory can be equipped with solar-powered lights or battery-operated lights, offering a practical and eco-conscious solution.

Should you wish to incorporate plumbing and electrical components, the lavatory's design allows for these features to be easily added to suit any individual needs.

Fabrication & Delivery Timeline

Assembly

The Composting Lavatory arrives fully assembled, eliminating the need for on-site construction. 

   

Order Timeline

Following your order confirmation, our production team initiates the crafting process. This stage typically requires 15-20 business days.

   

Delivery Estimate

After the fabrication is complete, we allocate an additional 5 days for the secure delivery of your lavatory. Our primary objective is to ensure that your order reaches you within the timeframe of 20-25 days from the date of order confirmation.

  

Note:

While we consistently aim to meet this timeline, it is important to acknowledge that certain circumstances may occasionally necessitate a delivery window of up to 30 days. These circumstances may include customised features, adverse weather conditions, or other factors beyond our control.

With pre-orders, you can secure your order with just a 5% deposit, and you have the freedom to choose a delivery date that aligns with your timeline, even up to 6 months in advance.

    

Foundations

A crucial part of achieving longevity and getting the most out of our new lavatory is establishing a solid foundation. An inadequate foundation can lead to structural issues, potentially causing cracks in the pod. Uneven placement of the lavatory may alter its geometric shape, resulting in twisting of doors and windows, as well as the formation of gaps. In this section, we'll delve into the essential considerations for the base and access to the sides of your lavatory, guiding you through the process of creating the perfect foundation for your outdoor space.

  

Access for Installation & Maintenance

For seamless installation and maintenance of our lavatory, access to all sides is essential. We recommend allowing approximately 300mm (about 12 inches) of clearance around the lavatory. However, allowing more space should never be overlooked.

In instances where the lavatory is positioned in a tight corner or a confined space, it's important to consider the potential challenges this may pose for maintenance. Restricted access can hinder routine visual inspections, which are typically recommended every six months. This regular check-up is crucial to identify and address any issues promptly, preventing them from escalating into more significant problems. Therefore, when placing the lavatory in a snug location, please be mindful of the potential maintenance difficulties it may entail.

 

Base

The foundation is the bedrock upon which your outdoor lavatory will stand. To maintain the structural integrity and prevent warping over time, it's imperative that all of our products are fitted on a level and sturdy surface. We do not recommend installing on uneven ground, grass, or generally unsuitable surfaces. Instead, we advocate for the ideal base, which includes options such as concrete, tarmac, patio stones, or even a structurally sound patio decking.

To ensure proper weight distribution and stability, it is crucial that the full, complete base is in contact with the ground. 

It's crucial to avoid any substantial depressions or gullies on the base surface. A depression of more than 3/4 of an inch (20mm) at any point across the base can lead to undesirable consequences, such as the floor being pushed down or bowed up in the middle. 

 

An inadequate base can result in gaps forming. Gaps may develop in the doors or walls. These gaps can have several consequences, including:

  1. Reduced Insulation: Gaps in the structure compromise the insulation of the lavatory, making it less energy-efficient and potentially leading to temperature fluctuations inside.
  2. Pest Intrusion: Openings can allow pests to enter the lavatory, which could create hygiene and maintenance issues.
  3. Water Ingress: Gaps may permit water to seep into the lavatory, potentially causing damage to the interior and its contents.
  4. Aesthetic Deterioration: Uneven gaps can mar the pod's appearance and affect its overall aesthetics.

It's essential to ensure that the lavatory is placed on a level and appropriate foundation to prevent these issues.

 

Note:

If our recommendations for building / choosing a suitable base are not adhered to, the warranty of the lavatory will be nulled!

    

How to Verify Your Lavatory Base

Checking the solidity and levelness of your lavatory base is crucial to ensure a flawless installation and prolonged usage. You can follow these simple steps to confirm its suitability:

  • Use a level, a straight piece of material, alongside a spirit level to check for any rocking or depressions exceeding 3/4 of an inch (20mm).
  • For added peace of mind, consider consulting a local builder or landscaper to confirm that the surface is level, ensuring a solid foundation for your outdoor lavatory.

   

Get Our Opinion

If you have any doubts or questions about the surface where your lavatory will be installed, please reach out to us. We are dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and expert assistance throughout the process.

To facilitate a comprehensive assessment of your base, we invite you to share images via email to sales@homelivingluxury.com. Please include the following details in your email, which will help us evaluate your situation accurately and efficiently:

    

  1. Images: Attach 3-5 images of your preferred base. This visual information is crucial for our assessment.
  2. Additional Information: If there are any specific details or noteworthy aspects related to your base, please provide them in the email. This may include any unusual features or conditions.
  3. Contact Number: Include your preferred contact number, allowing us to reach out to you promptly.

How We Make Our Pods

How We Make Our Pods

Home Living Luxury is dedicated to delivering quality, flexibility, and efficiency in the manufacturing of a wide range of products, including glamping pods, home offices, garden rooms, saunas, hot tubs, grill cabins, and pavilions. Serving both private and commercial needs, our manufacturing process combines precision, innovation, and sustainability.

This video offers an insightful glimpse into our factory, shedding light on the intricate process of crafting our bespoke products.

     

The Complete Journey

Stage 1: Pre-Fabrication

The fabrication process kicks off with the transition from 2D and 3D renderings to the physical production of your project. The design concepts, which have been carefully developed in collaboration with you, serve as the foundational blueprints for manufacturing. Our state-of-the-art software systems play a crucial role in this transition, rendering a real-time representation of your designs.

This digital framework extends to our production facility, where computer monitors display the technical specifications and detailed blueprints. These visuals guide our skilled artisans as they execute the manufacturing process with precision. This is the first stage in bringing your designs to life.

 

   

Stage 2: Fabrication

With our 2D and 3D designs now rendered using our high tech software, we can now move on from the planning phase and bring these designs into the factory. At this point, fabrication begins. The next steps are all about making sure we're precise and careful in creating your project just the way you envision it. This is undoubtedly the most important stage in the process, which is why we never rush our projects and why we use top of the range machinery to guarantee that our pods are produced consistently and error free.

Just as your project undergoes various stages of development, our quality control procedures encompass different types of inspections. These inspections include pre-production checks, evaluations during the production phase, thorough examinations before shipment, and meticulous inspections during container loading and unloading. Each type of inspection serves a specific purpose and contributes to the overall quality of your finished pod.

 

  • Skilled and Diverse Workforce
    • This vital stage of production places our team of skilled tradespeople in the limelight. These seasoned professionals, both men and women, bring an exceptional level of craftsmanship and expertise to the table. What sets them apart is their extensive experience in assembling our pods. They've built these structures repeatedly, which has turned them into true experts through sheer repetition.
    • But their role goes beyond mere repetition. These skilled tradespeople often provide invaluable insights and suggestions. Their hands-on experience makes them a bridge between design and production, and their feedback enhances our processes. We take great pride in our diverse and talented workforce, as they truly embody our commitment to delivering exceptional quality in every aspect of our work.

 

  • CNC Milling: Precision and Automation
    • CNC machining, or Computer Numerical Control machining, is an automated manufacturing process that ensures precision and consistency. In CNC machining, the desired cuts and operations are programmed into a computer, and this program is then executed by the corresponding machinery. This automation allows for highly precise and repetitive manufacturing processes with minimal human intervention.
    • We use CNC machining for its ability to pre-program the speed and position of machine tool functions, making it ideal for producing components with complex designs and demanding specifications.
    • By pre-programming the machining processes, we can ensure that every detail of our pods and cabins is executed with the highest level of accuracy. With CNC machining as an integral part of our manufacturing process, we can confidently offer our customers the finest bespoke living spaces, tailored to their exact specifications.

  

  • High Performance Cutting Machines
    • At the onset of the production process, we employ cutting-edge high-precision electric chop saws and cutting machines. These state-of-the-art machines are a substantial investment. The use of these advanced cutting machines not only reduces the margin of error but also significantly increases our overall efficiency.
    • Furthermore, these cutting machines are designed to be environmentally friendly, consuming considerably less electricity compared to less advanced models. This aligns with our ongoing efforts to promote eco-conscious practices and reduce our environmental footprint.

  

  • Precision with Automatic Spray Painting
    • As we progress through the production process, we focus on the final touches, and that's where our automatic spray painting machine steps in. This cutting-edge equipment adds an artistic touch to your creation, ensuring that every detail is just right. It's like the artist's brush, but in this case, it's a technological masterpiece.
    • This impressive marvel ensures that environmentally friendly paints and stains are expertly applied with exceptional precision. It operates efficiently, delivering a consistent and even coat of paint that enhances the overall finish of your project. Whether you choose a wood stain that highlights the natural texture or a paint that offers intense colour, our state-of-the-art spray technology ensures a professional and enduring finish that not only looks stunning but is also eco-conscious.
    • The decision between using a water-based wood stain or paint is yours to make. Both options provide UV protection, with stains showcasing the wood's texture and a wide range of colour choices, while paint offers an intense hue but covers the grain and texture. Regardless of your choice, our professional wood protection treatments extend your project's lifetime, safeguarding it against moisture, fungi, and other elements. Thanks to our automatic spray painting machine, your project is not just beautifully crafted but also built to stand the test of time.

   

   

  • Precise Assembly
    • As we near the completion of your project, the assembly phase becomes the central hub where all the painstakingly crafted components converge. During this stage, our skilled artisans seamlessly integrate windows into precisely designed frames, expertly attach side panels, and meticulously fit every element to guarantee a secure and accurate assembly. This is where the various parts of your project come together.
    • Our modular approach to assembly ensures an efficient and harmonious process. Each component is designed and manufactured to seamlessly slot into place, minimising room for error and guaranteeing that your project aligns with the exact specifications of each individual project.

      

  • Finishing Touches & Quality Assurance
    • As we reach the culmination of the fabrication process, we encounter the most time-consuming phase. After each project makes its journey along the production line, it undergoes a meticulous inspection to ensure every aspect of the product meets our rigorous standards. These end-of-line inspections are a fundamental part of our quality control procedures, taking place at the final stages of production. Our aim is to address any potential quality or safety concerns before your bespoke creation leaves our facility.
    • During this rigorous testing and assurance process, we scrutinise the pod's construction and assembly to verify that they align with our exacting standards. If, by any chance, we identify any issues with the goods, they are promptly rectified at this stage.
    • Once the pod passes these quality control assessments and is verified, it marks the conclusion of our fabrication process. We are then well-prepared to move forward with delivering your tailored goods, a moment filled with excitement and anticipation.
    • Our quality inspection system includes end-of-line testing, which plays a pivotal role in accurately evaluating the properties of every manufactured component and determining if the product exhibits any defects.
    • This system conducts pass-or-fail checks, providing formal confirmation that each component meets its designated specifications. These inspections occur throughout the production process, and our commitment to quality and safety ensures that the pods and goods we deliver are of the highest standard.

  

Stage 3: Modular Components for Easy On-Site Assembly

The assembly of our pods is designed for maximum convenience and efficiency, ensuring that your project comes together seamlessly. These modular components are pivotal in simplifying the on-site assembly process. For our larger pods, which cannot be transported as complete structures due to size constraints, this modular approach becomes even more essential. It allows us to ensure that your project can be assembled with relative ease, always with a strong recommendation to engage qualified tradesmen for this phase.

When it comes to on-site assembly, the main goal is to achieve a balance between quality and ease of installation. This is where the modular design truly shines. Walls and roofs, for most of our products, are joined together at the sides, forming a coherent structure that matches the precise specifications of your unique project. These components are fabricated with the same precision and care as the rest of the process, ensuring that every detail aligns with your vision. Whether your project is compact or expansive, the modular components guarantee a smooth assembly process.

      

Stage 4: Safely Secured for Transit

We work exclusively with trusted and verified couriers who understand the importance of handling and shipping our pods with the utmost care and attention to detail.

All our projects, whether pre-assembled or delivered in modular components, undergo rigorous fastening and secure positioning measures. Prior to leaving our warehouse, each project is subjected to a thorough checklist, assuring its safe and intact transportation. 

After our fabrication timeframe of 15-20 working days, we allow for a delivery window of up to 5 working days for all our pods. This timeframe guarantees that your project reaches you in excellent condition, with ample time for secure transportation. The delivery phase is the final step in bringing your vision to life, and we ensure that it meets our high standards of quality and precision.

This reflects our dedication to providing you with natural and distinctive products. Our spruce ranges in colours from creamy white to red-brown, and we ensure that it is responsibly harvested, resulting in a lower environmental impact.

 

 

  • Thermowood Cladding: We believe in making eco-conscious choices throughout our production processes. By selecting thermowood cladding for our products, we prioritise durability and sustainability. This natural and renewable resource offers remarkable stability and resistance to rot, making it the ideal choice for cladding buildings. Opting for thermowood cladding ensures a long lifespan for our products, reducing maintenance time and costs for you.

  


  

  • Recycling Waste Materials: At our facility, we actively recycle all sawdust and waste materials generated during production. This initiative is our way of contributing to a more sustainable approach to manufacturing. We recognise the importance of minimising waste sent to landfills and strive to reduce our environmental footprint.

Pod Warranty

Our glamping pods are designed, fabricated and transported, adhering to the highest British and European standards of craftsmanship and quality. We maintain close partnerships with our dedicated partners and couriers to ensure the utmost quality.

As a testament to our confidence in our glamping pods, we proudly offer a comprehensive two-year warranty on all our glamping pods. This warranty underscores our commitment to delivering top-tier, durable, and reliable pods to our valued customers. Our two-year structure warranty covers our pods for both private and commercial use.

Given the exceptional quality and construction of our pods, when treated and maintained correctly, their lifespan is virtually limitless. With the right care, we confidently state that our pods are built to endure for many decades to come.

Our comprehensive two-year warranty covers all aspects of your pod, ensuring you have peace of mind when it comes to your investment. This warranty includes:

  1. Pod Structure: Your entire pod structure, including walls, flooring, and roof, is included. We guarantee that these components will remain in impeccable condition throughout the warranty period.
  2. Insulation (if applicable): If your pod features insulation, you can trust that it will perform flawlessly, maintaining a comfortable environment within your pod.
  3. Roof: The roof of your pod is a vital part, and our warranty ensures its ongoing perfect condition, regardless of the roof design.
  4. Internal Walls: The internal walls are also under our warranty protection, ensuring their enduring quality.

 

Appliance Warranty

The warranty for these items is determined by the manufacturer (e.g our Harvia heaters). The duration of their warranties may vary, ranging from 0 to 4+ years.

It's essential to understand that the warranty period for electrical products and accessories is often shorter when used for commercial purposes.

 

Post Warranty Repairs

After the warranty period ends, or if the products are intentionally damaged by third parties or due to customer fault, Home Living Luxury may, in some cases, offer replacement parts for a fee. The cost of these replacement parts and services will be based on rates set by Home Living Luxury.

Customers are required to cover the expenses for these services unless Home Living Luxury specifies otherwise. The exact criteria and terms for post-warranty repairs or damages resulting from intentional misuse will be determined by Home Living Luxury.

   

Warranty Exclusions

Within the following sections, we will provide a detailed overview of the specific exclusions contained within our warranty terms. These are important to understand as they delineate situations and circumstances where warranty coverage may not apply.


  1. Non-compliance with Assembly Instructions: If your pod is delivered unassembled, it is crucial to follow the provided assembly instructions correctly. Your warranty will be void if the assembly is done incorrectly due to not adhering to the detailed and comprehensive instructions provided with your purchase.
  2. Natural Characteristics of Wood: As wood is a natural material, the warranty does not cover the following aspects:
    1. Wood may develop cracks after assembly.
    2. Wood movement, which may lead to gaps in walls due to factors like lightning, hurricanes, or tornadoes, resulting in changes in the item's shape.
    3. The occurrence of mold on wood.
    4. Wooden details that include intact branches and do not compromise the item's stability.
    5. Consequences of extreme or unusual weather conditions, such as water seepage through the wall or roof shingles during exceptionally heavy rain, strong winds, or weather events like lightning, hurricanes, or tornadoes.
    6. Use of the item not in accordance with its intended purpose or malfunctions caused by non-compliance with the provided instructions.
  3. Alterations and Repairs: The warranty is not applicable if the items are disassembled, their components are replaced, or if the items are altered by entities other than Home Living Luxury. Additionally, if third parties have carried out repairs on the items.
  4. Normal Wear and Tear: Natural wear and tear of the materials used and the item itself are not covered by the warranty.
  5. Atmospheric Influences: Wood, being a natural construction material, can be affected by atmospheric conditions. Before processing, timber typically contains up to 18% residual moisture content, and changes in humidity due to different weather conditions (e.g., rain, freezing, cold, or heat) can impact the wood structure and may lead to the following effects:
    1. Cracking during the drying process, which is considered a natural occurrence and not covered by the warranty.
    2. Adaptation of wooden details to new conditions a few weeks after construction. This may necessitate adjustments to doors.
    3. Ultraviolet rays (solar rays) may cause changes in the colour of the wood.



In summary, it's important to note that our warranty does not cover instances of misconstruction, misuse, normal wear and tear, and the effects of weather and atmospheric influences on wood. These exclusions are in place to provide clarity on the specific situations and conditions where we cannot be held liable under the warranty.

Shipping

We offer international shipping for all our glamping pods. Orders within the UK, Ireland, and Europe enjoy free shipping.

However, for deliveries to the Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands or outside Europe,will require personalised shipping quotes.Please reach out to our support team for a customised shipping quote, and we'll respond within 24 hours.

The entire process, from crafting to completed delivery, takes approximately 20-25 working days. After order confirmation, our skilled artisans begin constructing your pod, usually taking 15-20 business days. We then allocate an additional 5 days for secure delivery. While our goal is to deliver within 20-25 days, please note that certain circumstances, such as customisations or weather-related delays, may extend the timeframe up to 30 days. Throughout this process, we prioritise clear communication to keep you informed.

If you are located in an area such as those listed above, or your location is notoriously difficult to access/deliver too, it may be in your best interest to reach out to our support team by emailing us at sales@homelivingluxury.com, or by calling us on +442034359402.

By communicating clearly with us, we are able to offer you a better, more personalised service. This ensures that your order is delivered and received in the most methodical manner possible.

   

Returns

Making Changes to Your Order

We understand that sometimes changes may be necessary to meet your specific requirements. You have a window of opportunity to make changes to your order, but it's important to act promptly to avoid any additional charges. Order fabrication typically commences 5-7 days after your order placement, which is why the following conditions apply to facilitate any changes:


  • You can make changes to your order within 3 working days from the date of order placement without incurring any extra fees.
  • It may be possible to make changes up to 5 working days after placing your order, but after the initial 3 working days, a "late amendment fee" may apply along with any additional charges resulting from the modifications.
  • Please note that while we will do our absolute best to accommodate your requested changes, the final decision lies at the discretion of Home Living Luxury.

 

Our dedicated support team is here to assist you in this process, providing project insights to help streamline the changes effectively. Please contact us as soon as possible if you require any amendments to your order.

    

Pre-delivery Cancellations

Building on the information provided above, it's crucial to emphasise that our glamping pod fabrication typically commences 5-7 days after you place your order. Given this timeline, it becomes quite challenging for us to entertain pre-delivery order cancellations once your order is officially placed. Our pods are crafted to your precise specifications, which significantly limits the opportunity for returns or order amendments. Therefore, we strongly advise careful consideration before finalising your order.

If you ever find the need to make changes to your order, please contact us as soon as possible within the initial 3 working days from the date of order placement. During this timeframe, adjustments can be made without incurring additional fees. However, it's essential to clarify that the window for a full order cancellation is strictly 3 working days. If you choose to cancel your order within this period, a 5% cancellation fee will be retained by Home Living Luxury. For example, if your glamping pod order is valued at £10,000 and you request a full refund within the 3 working day period, we will issue the refund, deducting a 5% cancellation fee (£500). This policy specifically applies to products designed and crafted to your unique specifications, which explains its precise nature.

Please note that orders cannot be cancelled after the initial 3 full working days following the order placement. This policy is in place to ensure a streamlined and efficient process for all our valued customers.

    

Returns for Damaged Deliveries

Our returns policy accommodates orders that are received damaged by our courier. In such cases, please do not sign off on the delivery document and follow these steps:


  1. Refuse the delivery: If you happen to notice any damage to the product during the delivery process, please refuse to accept the delivery from our courier. This crucial step initiates the return process for damaged orders. The order will then be returned to the local depot, where further investigations and assessments will be conducted to address the issue. This helps ensure that any damage is properly documented and addressed in a timely manner.
  2. Document the damage: After refusing the delivery, it's crucial to thoroughly document the damage. Take clear and detailed photographs of both the damaged packaging and the product itself. These photos should offer a comprehensive view of the extent of the damage. This documentation will be invaluable in processing your repairs, replacement, or refund, and ensuring a swift resolution to the issue.
  3. Contact us immediately: Reach out to our support team within 24 hours of the delivery refusal. Provide us with the photos and a description of the damage, and we will initiate the return process.



At Home Living Luxury, your satisfaction is our top priority, and we want to ensure your glamping pod arrives in perfect condition. While we take extreme care in the packaging and transportation of our pods to prevent any issues, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can sometimes occur. In the rare event that you notice any damage during the delivery process, our return policy is designed to protect you, our valued customer.

Once a ticket has been raised, we will conduct thorough investigations and assessments to address the issue. This helps ensure that any damage is properly documented and resolved in a timely manner.

In the unfortunate event that a resolution cannot be reached through repairs or replacement, we offer a full refund. Please note that in such cases, the 5% cancellation fee will not apply, ensuring you are compensated fairly.

   

Post-Delivery Returns

At Home Living Luxury, we place paramount importance on delivering high-quality glamping pods crafted to your exact specifications. While we strive to ensure that your order arrives in pristine condition, we recognise that there may be concerns or issues that arise post-delivery. It's essential to clarify our approach to post-delivery returns:


  • Refunds for Non-Damaged Products: The bespoke nature of custom build orders means that we cannot provide refunds for products that have not been damaged during the delivery process. Each pod is designed to meet your unique needs, making it challenging to resell them to another customer.
  • Installation and Final Location: Once your order has been received successfully, and there is no damage reported, we regret to inform you that we cannot accept refunds under any circumstances. This policy is in line with the custom nature of our products.



While we cannot offer refunds for non-damaged products, our dedicated support team is here to assist you with any concerns or inquiries you may have. We are committed to ensuring your experience with our glamping pods is as positive as possible.
