If I do put one in, it will sit right in the shower.

Anyone have any input? Do you have a bathroom without a window, is it like a dungeon?

Here's a sketch of my layout (not to scale of course). Any comments?

I dont have one in my bathroom, but having one in the bath , helps to prevent moisture builb-up

Put in clear glass block then. Still get the view, avoids the problems of a normal window - which I would agree with everyone else is just a headache. Glass block comes in big sizes up to 12"x12". I was looking at a glass block site and noticed that there's a clear, solid glass block, it appears to greatly minimize the borders one would normally see in a standard block.

Here's a link to the image, I don't have an opinion about the supplier, it's just one I found: http://www.seattleglassblock.com/ima...k_premiere.jpg

First of all this thread is 3 years old, so hopefully the OP has his BR done by now.

Secondly FJCRUIZ, there is a product you can buy and install that is called an "exhaust fan"...a neat little item that gets rid of odors and excess humidity without the need for a window. It works really well in the wintertime in Ohio and Downeast Maine too, as opposed to an open window.
