Critter-proofing the composting toilet

Closing off the
composting toilet wallsNext month, we'll be swapping over to the other composting toilet hole, but I wanted to go ahead and put the roughage on the bottom now while I have corn stalks available.  Learning from our mistakes, I asked Mark to use some of the better junk tin from the barn roof replacement to cover up the cracks in the walls of this new chamber.

"I told you so!" Mark crowed.  He did indeed.  Back when we initially designed the composting toilet, I adamantly refused to make the walls solid, but Mark's gut reaction was right.  I'm glad he's still willing to fix my design flaws even though he knew better from the beginning.
