The Kitchen Yurt is a separate yurt that serves about 4 of us most of the year and about 40 other people during study terms at the Buddhist retreat center where I live. It's also off-grid and has a propane range and oven and a solar hot water system with a back-up propane on-demand water heater. It does have water from the well plumbed in.
I share my yurt with my DH. And sometimes 2 other people during the three 5 week terms.
I use an enamel chamber pot, because I have to get up in the night and don't want to go outside. The temple bathrooms are several hundred feet away so I usually go there during the day. But when we get into our off-grid retreat cabin, I plan to use a locally made "kat-box" (the woman who designed is Kat) which is a humanure sawdust composting toilet. (Basically a box with a pot and sawdust, which is being tested for approved use in our county right now.)
