* in Maine,
because of the snow and deep freeze winters,
some barns were attached to the house.  At the 
far end of the barn, would be an enclosed
outhouse.  It might be cold, but protected from
the elements. 
A friend told me of a house with a “3 seater”
outhouse that had been restored.
… the middle seat (the baby seat) was removable.
No record of reason someone would want to go
down under the outhouse, but it was restored 
as found. I wangled a “tour” because …
well just because I needed to see it.  I remember a
3 seater outhouse in northern Wisconsin…3 sizes
of places to sit…and not attached to the house…
mighty brisk some times.
