thinking about an outdoor shower...

 as our bathroom is going to be a bit small we thought about an outdoor shower in the garden. r. wants to try building something with mud bricks but maybe not the shower... so we may have some other projects coming up soon =)
my mum (in germany) and i (in israel) browsed the internet and found some very nice but expensive outdoor showers. and some which are just not possible in our garden...
we are looking for something cheap and practical (and not the most ugly one). i thought about bamboo or wood and i want it to be able to close completel.
it would be very nice to have a shower that forms out of bamboo plants, but that need some years to grow and we would like to build it as soon as possible.
 do you know anything about outdoor showers?

Hi :)
I don't know much about outdoor showers, but I did have one thought I wanted to share.
I live in Haifa, where humidity is relatively high. I think that if I built any of of the (very pretty) outdoor showers in the pictures, the wooden parts would get moldy. If you live near Netanya, you might have the same problem. So maybe plastic, stainless steel etc. are better suited to your local weather?
