This impressive outhouse, located in Chance Harbour, Newfoundland, looks like it may have been decorated by a professional!

Amy Adams of Mount Pearl, Newfoundland says this stylish outhouse is the "nicest outdoor toilet in Chance Harbour" - but we wager it might just be the nicest outhouse in all of Newfoundland and Labrador! According to Amy, the outhouse (built by Larry Holloway) is "well-vented and features soothing lavender walls, a beautifully landscaped walkway and patio, framed art, up-to-date reading material AND a chandelier!" Here are some other fun photos of outhouses spotted around the island.

Hang Onto Your Seat!


This outhouse, on the grounds of the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse, was photographed in the 1940s. The submitter writes, "What makes this outhouse unusual is that it was built to hang over the cliff because the rock was too hard to dig through. The children were always afraid of falling in when they used it!" Submitted by Crystal Randell of Bonavista, N.L.
