    Bathroom pod

    Hi guys and gals

    I'm starting to look into bathroom pods, the type of temporary structure you can bolt onto the side of your house, no need for planning permission. Be interested to know if anyone has experience of one of these.

    Cheers

    Neil.

        Hi Neil,

        Doddie Weir had a bathroom pod built on his house with the idea that someone else would have it’s benefit when he is gone. I remember seeing a video of it recently but I don’t have the link.

        Best wishes,
        Barry
        I’m going to do this even if it kills me!

          i really liked the recyclable approach. if I recall correctly he had a full body air dryer in the pod - that would be very useful

            Ooft. I can only dream! Does it come with hot tub too?
            I use a hair dryer pretty much to dry my partner all over...all good fun, but now that you mention the full body dryer option, our routine seems dull haha.

              Sounds wonderful. As long as it's not like those loos that you go inside and the door shuts and you feel like you might never see daylight again.

                Good morning,

                We used to use this lot for events we organised but perhaps this is a little too portable for the purpose?

                More seriously this lot may be worth a look;

                      He was a Scottish rugby union player. Think he was diagnosed in 2016

                        Hi Matthew - he's a very tall, famous scottish ex rugby player who has mnd. He's doing a good job - https://www.myname5doddie.co.uk/. Coincidentally my dentist used to train with him! He sounds a genuinely good guy.

                        Tess - out of interest i just googled body driers - the Apres Body Drier looks great but you'd need deep pockets. Didn't see a matching hot tub

                            I totally recommend the Doddie podcasts. Husband was just talking about body dryers in 70s sci fi today and wondering if they were an actual thing.

                            Great idea Tess with the hair dryer.

                              I can see Matthew is not a rugby fan. Doddie also played for Newcastle Falcons, my hometown team. The money he has raised is great news for MNDA and even if much of the cash goes to the Scottish charity a fair chunk comes south.
