Here are the detailed dimensions for the Nature’s Head Composting Toilet

I strongly recommend having the toilet on site, prior to drilling any holes in your structure. Measure twice, cut once.

Nature’s Head with shifter handle. Allow room to tilt back the top section slightly (about 2″) when emptying
Note the fan housing protruding slightly at the side, behind the handle. This can be moved to either side. The vent house attaches to this with a friction fit.
