Jay Critchley compound | Septic Summer Rental.
An old cesspool came with the Carnes Lane property, which Jay Critchley described as an “elegant, circular, beehive-shaped structure,” five feet deep and six feet in diameter. In 1997, he turned it into the Septic Summer Rental, complete with a bed, nightstand and TV, as a commentary on the living conditions facing artists and old-time residents as real estate values escalated. He next transformed it into the Septic Opera and Theater in the Ground.
