Install an outdoor shower

An easy to install shower uses a a garden hose for access to water. The unit can be unhooked and stored for the winter. Placing the hose in the sun will heat the water inside it and give you warm water for a couple of minutes. The only labor required is assembling the shower kit. You can purchase the kit for $350 and hook it up to a hose yourself, or it's less than an hour of work for a handyman.
