Well, yes. That would be the easiest thing to do (cover it up).
BUT, now that I think about it some more....
That side of the house is the one side with views to the river! Why, the owners put their baths on that side is beyond me. The two baths are side by side, making use of a common wall/plumbing in that wall. They are both 5' x 7', with the tub or shower running along the entire 5', outside wall portion of the house. Short of knocking both baths into one, and getting creative with the arrangement of fixtures... I can think of no way to get a window or slider there. grrrr. I could leave the tub/shower on one side, but then I'd have to have one toilet and the sink back to back, along the west wall (there's got to be a door there too). yeah. That will only happen if/when we build the new garage and new addition over the garage and adding 20' something to the top story of the house!
At the moment, I'm thinking of replacing the casements with new casements, for ventilation, and cause it's kinda neat to watch the river, birds, 4' iguanas, while taking a shower. lol. That means a custom (DIY) tile job. <sigh> Which means I gotta learn how to do tile.
Add it to my To-Do-List.... lol.
