Maybe you can still see OUT the windows a bit while taking a shower...depends on how steamy it gets....Wink.

wondering if there is a bottoms up panel so one could raise it to height allowing looking out but not in too much....the tub looks nice and comfy deep!

I'm the one who predicted that the bears will be sitting in bleacher seats outside the master bath window eating popcorn. Nobody believed me at the time.

I think you were already selling them tickets Mr. Bill.

It is a really neat bathroom. Greatbath, shower, and double vanities.

"Any guesses what is is behind the door that is kitty-corner to the tub? From the floor plan, I assumed it was a closet, but the 360 shows the door part way open and it doesn't look closet-y in there."

One of the pictures shows precisely what is behind the pocket door. It is a key component of every bathroom.

Is that a trick question? It's a water closet of course... At least no one has to use that in front of a window...

Chocolate, I think we can draw the drapes when we use the lovely bath tub. I love the shower as well. Everyone is always looking for natural light and it sure has that.

I wish for once they would put short, wide windows in bathrooms rather than tall, skinny ones. You get just as much light but keep the privacy.

True, you can draw the drapes, but then poof, there goes the natural light. And the consequences of forgetting in this house... with the MBath on the 1st floor. Right now there is a sense of privacy, of being in the woods. But once the rest of the homes are built, there won't be much privacy. ISTR the platt size is 1/4 acre. That's not a lot of breathing room.

But then again, no one seems to ever think about living in DHs when design decisions are made. It's all about how much excitement they can stir up.

And this year's is sure a beauty to look at.

It's been mentioned in previous years' posts on the subject of vulnerable window exposure that a reasonably priced, quality E-factor window tint can be applied which virtually blocks the view-in, yet retains 80% of the view-out ability from the inside. We have used it successfully on poolside sliding doors.

Tango, I installed that on my fully exposed Master Bath window. I did not realize I installed it on the wrong side of the window until the neighborhood block party, (which nobody told me about,) held in my backyard, outside my window.

I think the bathroom is lovely. I will pull the shade down with just enough room for the bather to enjoy the outside while soaking in the tub.

Did you all notice the interesting faucet which comes from the floor? There was a similar one in the tub in the last blog cabin.

I think all the master bath needs is a bottom up shade that you could pull up to neck level so you have your privacy and keep the view.

given the lot size, privacy will be an issue so the shade will be needed. when the adjoining lot is sold and developed there likely will not be much of a view from the side windows but at least the view from all rear facing windows will be wonderful.

Guess that depends on your definition of "view". To me, the sight of those magnificent Ponderosa Pines is quite a view. And listening to the wind in the pine branches, relaxing addition to bath time.
