This outhouse which is located on a tree farm in north-central Wisconsin offered some unique challenges. One of the biggest obstacles was the fact that all of electricity had to be generated on the land and the building material had to be transported through some rough terrain. When designing this outhouse I factored in some salvaged metal awning material which was given a new life as part of our roof. A culvert was up-ended and transformed into the drum and a rear access door was cut out to use for future cleaning. When this structure was completed the customer had a nice and necessary addition to his land.
When I formed Burkham Built, LLC back in 2005 I wanted to separate myself from my competition by focusing first and foremost on lasting quality. Being surrounded by a profit driven industry of rush and run, I knew I had to offer more to my customers.

Well-designed spaces that function both aesthetically and ergonomically is what we continue to provide to this day.

For example, if a set of windows has custom exterior arched casings that have rotted away, we would re-build the arches and then incorporate composite materials so that it lasts against the elements. There are so many ways in which the right custom design blended with a customer's input can yield beautiful results.
