Bathroom windows requirements

Is it possible to have a window above the shower at approximately the same dimension as the shower hob and have sufficient standard waterproof. My designer is saying there will be a big possibility of leaking / mold etc. He is suggesting the window being 500mm above the shower, but lowest 150mm (waterproofing standards).

Where to start? 2 Replies

My husband and I recently purchased a log home on 10 beautiful wooded acres in south western Ohio. We are at a loss as where to even begin with exterior maintenance. It definitely is in need of some work to reseal the logs but we are completely new to this all. Should we start with a log home professional quote/appraisal and then work our way to DIY for long term? We would prefer to do the labor ourselves as money is an issue of course but we want it to be done correctly in order to best keep…Continue
