: : What does "built like a brick s h i thouse" mean

: It's slang from 40 or 50 years ago, describing a voluptuous woman.
: An outhouse is normally constructed out of cheap wood planks and discarded materials ... so, to build one out of bricks is absurdly, extravagantly, conspicuously overbuilt.

As far as I am aware it is still current but used to describe a heavily built man. A more polite alternative is 'built like a brick outhouse'.
