Super Fan has come up with the perfect solution for that overexposed casita shower. Window film!

Thanks for the idea, I don't think in the lack of privacy!
I don't think I would worry to much about privacy, I would be so happy to have won such an amazing prize that it would be the last of my worries.
I agree with you lovelynurse30.
hgtv done a wonderful job on this home. everything is just perfect. best home ever.
Yay! But I have to say, that is a very little problem when you consider you just won a $ 2 million prize! Of course I would change a couple of things, but that is part of making a house a home.
JessiRose, that's how I see it too. We think alike.
That sounds like a better idea than what I had. My plans were to put up a curtain. The frosted glass sounds great. I also wondered about the pool area. I was curious to see what it looked like, being that the weather is great and that's where I would be spending alot of time.
The pool is at the club house. If you look up San Pedro Overlook you can find pictures of the pool area.
A question: Are the sliding shower doors set so they only open to the right? Could they be replaced with an opaque glass (possibly colored) but open to the left, therefore keeping the beautiful line of the tile when the shower/bath is not in use but adding the privacy when they are in use?
I believe the shower is accessed from the "other" side, not the bed side.
Yep! You're right. In looking again I saw the solid wall of glass between the shower and the bedroom, which I had not observed before. When looking at Mary's video with this blog I could only see the sliding door. Thanks for the correction!
Look at you! Wonder Woman Super Fan To The Rescue! Sorry no music to go with this enthusiastic punch you wonderfully give, Thanks for relaying that very easy resolve as your so right with the concerns. Letting people who own the home choose. See Your The Woman!
~I like my idea of making a old style treasure map on the turquoise trail with the frosted film applied.. S
~I also like the tints as well. My home has that wondow film on all the window & so does make a difference in energy savings. Back on point.
~I also like applying the mirror reflective film on both sides of the safety glass shower enclosure so you have mirror images that enlarge & give more dramatic appearances for both sides of the casita room with all the visuals in glass & colors bouncing everywhere. You never know what that mirror might come in handy for……….la, la, la,
Have a very fine day everyone!
Oh! Hello again….the other thing is with the mirror reflective film when applied holds up so well.
~ When mirror reflective film is applied, the cool thing is you can see thru the mirror reflective film, like a one way mirror and no one sees you inside. Too cool. Again, if the lighting is applied inside the shower enclosure it probably allow you to be seen inside, but I'm sure there are lights all around enclosure for bedroom & bathroom settings so it's no problem. Then you also have full visuals on your attire or what ever you find useful with it applied. Hmmm. It's all up to the winner in another option to choose what they will do with the dream home?
With all the replies on liking the tiles & the casita look. Yep, I think I would choose the mirror effect myself too. The more I consider it, the more I like how it would multiply the rooms effects over any other option. It also make the space appear larger, brighter & great for other approaches for use of this space. Yep, think I would choose this choice myself. One way mirror here I come. I see you, but you don't see me. Anyways, it not like I or anyone would have a grand parade going thru in your private space in the boonies.
Just as long as I am not enlarged in the mirror reflective film…hehehhehehe
Let's see…they call it minimized, now don't they? Perfect figures every look, just ask the
mirror, mirror on the wall….toodles
Perfect idea! Also, I will put it in the Master Shower on the window, too. Never can be too careful!
Love it!!! Minimization is the way to go…hehe!! Thanks PFG..
No problemo! Glad I thought of it too!
la la la….that's funny
That is a great idea. My girlfriend and I were discussing the privacy issue in the casita. Check out this super cool window film that changes as you pass it by. Could work really great in there.
Hey Dssr, Thanks for posting that site for everybody , putting window film on car windows use to be a part of my huaband's business, not any more now, but I did want to mentioned ,It would be good if anyone does use the film , if you can afford to get someone that knows how to do it , put it on , it's not something that just anyone can do , takes a lot of patience , and time, or you may end up very unhappy ,with bubbles, and have to do it over. which is not fun.lol
This is a real cool idea, especially since it will allow the continuous view of the pretty tiles across the whole of the casita wall possible without major interruption. I like it! Thanks of sharing.
I have used a window film product that is available at The Home Depot. It is very easy to use! The Artscape window film product goes up with water and it does not have adhesives. It is available in stained glass or etched products and cost me about $20. I just installed the product on my arches over my front windows. It was a great project and I finished in minutes. Here is a link to Artscape's websites. http://www.artscape-inc.com and http://www.lighteffects.com Now my neighbors think I have custom stained glass in my front room. I called Artscape and they said the product can be used on the outside of a shower door or on a bathroom window.
We were making plans to remodel our home when I came across the 2010 Dream Home Sweepstakes. Thank you so much for sharing all the details of this beautiful home. As it happens the fireplace details in the sitting area were almost identical to what I was hoping to do in this home. Now my husband has a visual for the idea.
When my daughter first saw this room she became excited about the sweepstakes for the first time. (She didn't think the odds very good for our actually winning and I had to agree). "That's going to be my room if we win. Although the open shower bothers me a little. But, I could sure get over it if it were mine", she said. Thank you for the privacy idea as well.
Good idea, Gail, although I still like the cool high-techno fogger that someone (maybe Heritage Seeker or Dave?) posted earlier. Can one of you guys repost that?
That is awesome, I was thinking the same thing but didnt know the name. I seen this in a shower on MTV The Real World. Great Idea…
I think i have to say i love it the way it is besides instead of going away for that get away u can always use the casita as a priviate get away and like the continual draw of the colors that seems like no ending and when u mask it up i think u will loose that continuing feeling thats why i think i love it sooo much hope i win it just to keep it just the way it is
Thanks Gail! This feature has never really bothered me, but I do like the idea of some strategically placed film "bands" running along the side. The example at the Home Depot site looks really good!
Thanks for the idea…but I love it the way it is! Beggars can't be choosers!
Hmmmm…. considering what the Casita is, I don't think privacy is going be much of an issue… Unless of course, the front door is unlocked, etc…
Great suggestion super fan! We wouldn't mind having the bathroom area open, but maybe our guests would…
Thanks for the tip!!!
Eh… No guests in the Casita! LOL (Tis me personal sunset observatory…)
Lol… We totally agree with you! We would love to open the Casita to our occasional guests but we would definitely make sure we had our fair share of time observing the beautiful scenery!!! =)
Should we win, the casita would become my husband's office, and I don't think he cares about the lack of privacy. But if he does, I have always liked the look of sliding shoji screens, and I think this would be the perfect setting!
C&E: I love shoji screens and have used them in a previous home but I don't see them here. Not the peaceful, shibui type atmosphere in the casita.
Thanks Gail, I have used window film previously and it would work wonderfully. Plus it can be removed and reapplied over and over.
Hi Gail, Never was a problem for me!!! ;>) I LOVE everything about the 2010 HGTV Dream Home!!!
Really, Kristine…why do people complain about anything to do with this gorgeous DREAM Home?!?!
Once I have won, the Casita will be my massage studio and I plan to use a southwestern inspired screen between the shower wall and the therapy space. Maybe even install a pergola and vines over the patio for outdoor massage. My clients will love it.
moltenmama: And so would I. Wonderful idea!
so funny, that is exactly what I have been dreaming of! do you think we could have massage clients in the gated community????
probably depends on how laid back the community is, it would be nice if HGTV posted the Sandia Park community bylaws!
There is a home office, so I don't think it would be an issue. Unless there are restrictions due to the fitness center having a spa.
Sounds wonderful… my husband and I will have to make an appointment for a relaxing massage, once you're all moved in!
It would be difficult for you to do that since I will be the winner.
No problem here either. Luv it. And I'm ready to move. I'm half packed!
Good Luck to u!
Thank you Gail. If I happened to be the fortunate winner, I would carry the film idea a step further and add a privacy etched glass wall to the height you mentioned so you can still appreciate the beautiful tile. The design would be the exact vertical design of the tile……yep….I'm still dreamin'…..
Wow…was thinking the same thing…creative and crafty!
I thought that I saw this video a few weeks ago… The film is the most cost-effective solution…. Thank you Mary for re-posting Gail's wonderful and enthusiastic Vlog!!! I think that I will keep it clear for a while… Let's see what discussions we can get started with all of the visitors….. Love life by living green and having a dream!!
Since its not permanent, You could try different shapes and patterns as well as types of privacy film on the glass wall.
It is so exciting to see someone in this beautiful home and pointing out the great details (along with thoughtful suggestions, Super Fan – thank you for taking the time to listen and share!). We would be designating this area to my son (college student) when he is home and having guests in as often as possible! I would love to shop for a privacy film for this and add our own little details – we are big on family and pet photos in black and white, so would add them here and there and probably not change anything else. Though I will be bringing my 'flat' pillow with me even though there is probably a great new fluffy one (or more) on the master bed! Love everything about this house! The suspense is killing me!!! fingers, toes, legs and everything crossed and saying lots of prayers : )
I'm with you on the crossing everything..LOL I too think Gail has done a wonderful job. Good luck to you!
LOL – Good luck to you, too!
Whether a photographer, supermodel, rockstar, politician, or just your average Dream Home winner, overexposure can definitely be an issue. So when guarding your privacy is paramount, think Smart Glass. Otherwise known as electrochromatic glass, Smart Glass provides the necessary "cover" by going from transparent to shaded or nearly fully opaque at the flip of a switch. The degree of privacy can vary depending on need and the type of electrochromatic glass chosen. (Just something to keep in mind when it's in your best interest and the best interest of others not to go public.)
Of course, Super Fan GAIL's window film is a neat and easy fix. It's also low priced—but if you're the Dream Home winner itching to spend some of that $500,000 check that comes with the home, you can think high-tech, higher-priced electrochromatic glass. Then all your friends and neighbors will want to check out each one of those great Dream Home features, and once they see how that electrochromatic glass works, they may want to check-in to the Casita, permanently!
Happy Turquoise Trails!
I find the idea of Smart glass appealing and not too revealing! good idea!
I love this idea…much better than my etched glass. I'm all for high-tech…and practical jokes…say you hook up the switch to a remote control… …………….
Are you the wise one, peek a boo I see you. Oh! What a visual. LOL
LOL! I think that in Andie/printmaker's case, you'd better be sure the switch is on the bathroom side and NOT the bedroom!
Any price estimates on the high-tech peek-a-boo??
Cost per square foot?
Another aha moment averted, LOL!
Coop: If I had to flip a switch I'd be looking for the hidden cameras too. I totally agree with you that our Super Fan Gail's solution just doesn't seem right for a big bucks Dream Home. I'll stick with my first idea of the classic etched glass covering the bottom half of the glass only. I still like my thought of the Mickey Mouse shaped cacti in the garden. Or how about a big owl with eyes starring out at you in bed. Or maybe a cuddly bear or two. Just something whimsical. Or maybe something to show the owner's interests. A piano keyboard, a favorite recipe for southwestern salsa, or better yet….. Take a peek at all those black and white photos inside the DH and do a mountain scene, sketch of the exterior Dream Home. Oh, sorry, been blabbing too long, gotta read some more bloggings.
I love the Smart Glass…. It is such a wise investment for a high-end home!! Thanks, COOP!!
I love the idea of the electrochromatic glass, I would even love it in the great room and entry for at night when you would fell like you're in a fish bowl. Unfortunately there are minor changes I would want to make to the kitchen and master bath (add cabinets and drawers) and the $500,000 would have to go towards the huge tax bill. So film it is, unless I win the lottery and the house. Better go buy a few Lottery tickets…probably some milk, bread, Lindor Truffles and why not, some wine. We are supposed to get a foot of snow or more today. The NM HGTV dream home is sounding better and better.
Thanks For that Gail,I think this house was greatly designed just the way it is.I'm sure who ever wins this house will figure out some way to use this space. This house is absolutely fantastic.
You are right Aron, I LOVE IT just the way it is!
The window film might work…I was thinking that depending how much room tall plants might be a pleasing alternative. Ones without thorns, of course! Hmmmm…electrochromatic glass, what a novel idea! I plan to research that!
In support of the team-
Dear Gail, on an unrelated issue I would like to see you, Monica, and Jack on future programs. This blog has become my new television, and an extraordinary break from a job that I love. I have so enjoyed all of you in your genuine, humorous, and enthusiastic presentations, tours, and your offer of vivid details of the home. and relationship to the Sandia and outlying community. It looks and feels like you really love what you are doing. As a blog member I would love to write a letter to the powers that be about your work, and feel that each one of you should be an intrinsic part of future programs, as the combo of personalities works beautifully together. Let us know how to contact the masterminds so that we can express our support of this wonderful team. If any of our group has this information please let us know. If you like please post this info. after the drawing or whenever convenient.
I think this would become our workout/yoga/stretch room (bed into guest room), not sure. The shower would still be a wonderful feature and I like the idea of a nice tall plant in front of it because I love plants. I personally like the open feeling it gives with the glass in place.
That is why you are SUPER FAN great idea!!! I am so excited!!!! still!!!! can't wait to see who the lucky winner is.
That's the ticket. The sterner stuff that this blogg is made of. Good positive, smart, researching folks like you. You are still enthusiastic and full of joy. Good luck with everything
Thanks for the positive feedback, I am new to blogging? but I owe it all to this beautiful home, there is just something about this one. If ever I would imagine winning a home this would be the one!!! This truly is my dream home.
Enough! That annoying, sophmoric voice and solutions to a non existant problem are too much. Here we have, at least by some standards a $2 million home and a "fan" making correc tions. Enough.
Do I hear dysfunction…
Opinions are & opinions go
It's a conversation with grace & tactfulness
Please join in when your ready.
Oh boy…DVL is back at it again.
By the way, the reason why this was video was posted (if you LISTENED to it), is precisely BECAUSE a lot of people had raised the concern of privacy. I personally don't have a problem with the design, but that doesn't mean EVERYONE feels the same.
So a name not to reply too I hear. Good to know.
So how are you really feeling. P LOL
I've seen almost everything sited from Gulf War vets to Easter and simply the issue of not boiling over with schoolgirl entusiasm over the dream house in the middle of the desert. Do you think "privacy" will be an issue to the winner when they realize the entire blog is gushing with trac' house development fever to "get involved" in their life and decisions? Taking a shower will be the least of it. I'm stunned at how you all ignore the tax issue. Very few people in this country, let alone the blog could handle the tax implications of winning let alone bathing!.
Agreed, but I got extra spirit today.
Wish I knew why so I can duplicate it just as it is.
Thanks Wyo_Girl & you too have a great day out there in the colder climate.
Agreed…I'm walking away from it…
…I hope you haven't reproduced…
So it seems that the closer we get to the announcement the more negative people appear and make comments that are better left unsaid. I think she made a wonderful contribution as well as presenting a great idea for something that some people were wondering about. DVL lets try to be nice and positive??
I'm with Dean, there was a reason she addressed this issue (Thank you Gail and HGTV). It's unfortunate you pick this forum to express your negativity, really…we don't want to read it.
Every party has a pooper, and the party pooper's you…
DVL: You said it. Enough! Go annoy somewhere else. You're so boring.
DVL, Especially at Easter time, remember to give thanks that you can hear, see, read and write, others are not as fortunate. Maybe you can put your abilities to better use then for just being mean to others. Also thank the wonderful soldiers for defending our great country that give people like you the freedom to speak. I think Gail is awesome! ~Nina
DVL, there just may be something to karma… and I wouldn't want yours! First, I will write, for the record, that Gail is a fun and refreshing voice for us. Secondly, if you are going to be all nasty, the least you could do is be the perfect person that you expect others to be. So, please check your spelling, punctuation and grammar. Sorry to see that you are such an unhappy person. Lastly, I will tell you that your childish comments have not detracted from the fun of this blog. They have only given us insight to you. Don't go away mad… just go away.
yawn…….turn the page……
The beautiful little Casita. Decoration done great. Some will enjoy it to the full, also in combination with beautiful view.
Those clear glass doors are made so beautifully and really I feel kind of pity to cover that beautiful work that reveals the beauty of high-end bathroom. Only if unavoidable necessary. What if only one person is there, no partner. I adore bathrooms Delta's Arzo accessories. Oooo, it is such beautifully made, everything in Casita.
we had discussed this at work. These are some of my co-workers ideas;
2. have it stain glass
3.curtain made of wood with a design
4.leave it like it is
Oooh I love the stain glass idea too annie
When (OK, if) I win this house, I'll contact the distributors of a couple of the suggestions made above and see if they want to do a promotional and provide their solution free of charge in exchange for the exposure. Maybe I'd use plants or the temporary film as an interim solution. Win, win!
P.S. I like having a few projects to make the house more a home.
Good suggestions from the bloggers.
Great Solution! Although I think a solid block would complement better than bands. We are a growing family of 5 with lots of guests and family; this casita would be amazing getaway for all those folks coming in and out!
Thanks for the idea for my (insert little prayer here) new dream home! ::kisses lucky rabbit foot:: My guests/clients using the casita will be pleased!
This is unrelated to the vieo….are they going to show video of the drawing this year? Have they already done the drawing?
I'm hoping that they will do the same as last year and post when they've done the drawing. As far as the rules go, the drawing is "on or about" March 2nd.
Got a question,
Have all the hgtv Dream home winners been older people?? I haven't seen any young people(like 20-30s)???????
guest: Most young people don't have the time.. They are busy with their jobs, raising a family and entertaining. I know I was at that age. Older people have the time to enjoy the programs on HGTV, dream about winning and have the time to enter everyday. We enter with the thought of winning something for our married children and grand-kids to enjoy on vacation. If you are young, how many times have you entered??????
I am 35 and entered everyday
There was a younger women who had won Im not sure which year but I believe like 2008 but dont quote me on that her whole family was there and she was holding a small child.. Also u dont see that many young single people sitting at home watching HGTV.. So I dont believe as many young people know about the dream home..
I'm 29 and I entered almost everyday (somedays I was sidetracked by my active 7 year old or full time college work). I have been house and design obsessed since I was little.
I even entered my boyfriend who is 25.
I hope someone younger wins this one, namely me or my boyfriend!!
Or else I hope the winner's life is completely changed (for the good) by this sweepstakes. One of the past winners said that the award didn't change things much for them except allowing them to buy better real estate. I would be happy if it changed someone's life significantly but none of it is for me to choose.
The winner for the Islamorada, FL dream home was a young mother, probably in that age range.
yes- 2008 winner- Stephanie Dee from Iowa looked to be 20's to 30's…had a toddler and a baby.
Being Young at Heart, does that qualify?
Please look under Static Cling Decorative Film Products: These Textured Embossed Window Films have captured the look of real textured, cut glass. Old world charm with modern beauty. All of the Embossed Films allow light through but they distort the light making it impossible to see clearly through your glass and even comes in colored stain glass and also comes in many traditional and contemporary styles.
Its a great ideal..but i'm not going to change anything once i win..I love that look. besides why mess up all the hard work that was put in by all of the dream home team…at least enjoy it the way it is for a couple of years. I know i will.
Here is a question, I can't find sq. ft. on rooms anywhere on Dream Home site. Am I just overlooking that info. ? Love to know sq. ft. on the casita and office. Enjoy the blogs! Love ,Love the Dream Home!!!!
If you look at the floor plan for the casita it looks slightly larger than the 1 car garage space. Typically a 1 car garage measures 10 x 20 which equals 200 sf. So, my guess of actual casita sf would be 250 – 300 sf.
GAIL, we've got plenty of time until the big reveal, so I hope you have some more great vlogs up your sleeve (or turquoise wrap.) MARY, please dole them out generously over the next few weeks. After all, we can never have enough information about the Dream Home, or too much of GAIL's lively chats.
Bring 'em on MARY!
Lots of generous idea's for personalization for that lucky dream home winner.
Where to put the hot tub?
~ Out the back of the Casita with a stained 12' X 16' to 18' Santa Fe Territorial Pergola overhead with?
~ Take out the large masterbath window in center. Install door like other home doors to your new screened in territorial porch walkout with exquisite details.
~ Develope & get architecturally stamped new plans for tub extrordinare room out your masterbath.
Contract it our have concrete poured for your add on foundation for new space. Build out with electrical/plumbing reqs, skylights or huge one, finish to match home, remove center window in master bath, finish with matching home door, then take out bath in master bath sell it, finish floor. Voila you have a keen doorway uniquely set from your master suite to your bath & with your brand new tub room & whatever else you decide for the space.
I'm already moved in and I haven't changed a thing but hang some photo's. From sunrise to sunset my spirit feels alive to be apart of this fantastic home. Got to go now to watch the sunset over the mountains.
Darlene… what a wonderful description of what we're probably all feeling. Now, I am going to bring my cup of hot cocoa topped with marshmallows over to the entry fireplace and sit in one of those beautiful turquoise chairs and read a book.
Great idea, Mary I also like the potted plants suggestion to keep things natural.
I was wondering if my guests would be bothered by that clear glass. I was thinking a shower curtain on a rod would be more private, but thought it would take away from the wonderful tile and ruin the look of the room. This solution is a great idea if I didn't want to replace the glass with another type of glass. I hope this is something I have to decide for real!!!
I think thats great! Really who wants to poop infront of there partner?I never want to see my husband sitting on the toilet.
Lisa: Not only a husband pooping, but a woman doing her most private …….things…….at that time of the month.
OK, that casita bathroom might be fine for a lone person staying there. But what about families?
I hate that exposed toilet. !!!!
yah no one eles wants to admit that.I hate it to but it is a easy fix thank goodness!I wonder why they didnt put the toilet in its own room?
Gail, Gail, Gail. That photo is not very flattering. Just an FYI. I think the location of the Dream Home will not have peeping toms…at least I hope not. Don't worry. Just open up the window and let the sunshine in. My suggestion is not to cover that window.
Carole Ann: It;s not a window we are trying to cover, but the exposed toilet. Aw, shucks, enow said. Please, fingers, no more.
Sorry, let me back up. I don't have sound on my computer and the photo was paused when I first logged on in a not so flattering position. Gail, you are beautiful!
They could have picked a more flattering edit cutting point as while Gail is a beautiful lady, it catches her in a bit of an awkward look…that's one problem with videos- my husband is a professional photography/videographer and there are times that I get on his case when he does a quick home video that he pauses with me looking weird.
In Calif. it is now 4:55 p.m. 2/24/10. I got up this morning and went to GH and just read. It took me 2hr. to read all the blogs including many replies. I had an appointment and left the house. My addiction was strong and had to get a fix so when I arrived home I went directly to may computer went on DH and surprise another view of cutie Gail eventhough the contest is over. This is amazing to me . I was told this would happen. I remember how paniky I felt that you all would go away. Boy was that silly. My addiction is keeping me here again for hours reading and replying. Do you know what I learned today? If I go out, I spend money. So staying on a blog seems to have saved me over $200 since I joined this group! Amazing again. If I keep this up I will have so much money saved that I will have some money to spend in Sante Fe for some personal decorations to make this DH truely mine. Please don't wake me up until March 2nd. Sandy
Sandy LA: Go watch some Ice Dancing. Learn what truly dedicated people can accomplish Sorry, HGTV, you're competing with the Olympics. Sandy, if you could send that $200 to the Special Olympics and look at those children, I don't think you would feel bad. I think you would be elated. Good luckl, dear friend.
Katydid what makes you think I am not watching the Olympics? Ido not get it until 8:00pm, and so at that time I amdoing both. My TV set is next to my computer!!!
I have been a special educator for years. I taught learning and emotional handicappers. The handicaps you can't see. I was involved with Special Olympics hoping some of my kids would enter since most of them were not good in sports. But when I couldn't get any parents involved I kind of let it go. It is the most wonderful experience and very rewarding.
Sandy LA: Sorry you don't get the Olympics till 8:00pm. Assumed everyone got them all day long,like here. I apologize for my thoughtless remark about Special Olympics. Like sending coals to Newcastle. I so admire you for your special ed career! Are you still involved? Hope so, you deserve a special award.
I don't do anything rofessionally, but people still call me for advice – mainly teachers and occasionally a parent. I love it I miss it. I finished my career teaching middle school Severely Emotionally Disturbed (I do think some rubbed off hehehe!). Smiling Sandy
You are too funny, Sandy!!! Glad to hear that you are saving money!! Keep Dreaming!!
Renee its a good thing I haven't fallen asleep at the controls yet.. I really think this is one of the funniest and greatest things that I have participated in. I do get excited and revved up when I am reading something that stirs me. The mood of the blogs does take me along. I laugh, I get upset, I get excited and nervous. Right now I am calm because I know there is nothing I can do about the outcome. It is the luck of the draw!!!!! Thank you for your input and I will dream no matter what. Good luck to you. Sandy
Yep- in the winter times it seems like the only things to go out and do all end up spending money.
Sandy, we must be twins separated at birth. Because of work, I haven't had the time to blog this time; however, when I take coffee breaks I have been glued to the monitor touring the home and dreaming. If I had the extra time, I would be blogging right along with you. There are such a great bunch of nice people in the DH blogs. Back in the day, we had pen pals… now, we can have blog pals. I wonder if in addition to keeping us from spending, if it could keep me out of the fridge?
I think the film idea is an excellent suggestion. However I do love this home exactly the way it is.I am certain that my family will love this getaway so much that they will forget the lack of privacy anyway. When my family is not there to visiting I think I will sneak out there!!! I promise I wo't care about the glass.
Winning this dream home would be so exciting….the casita 's privacy is not even an issue….many ideas are available….Gail , your idea is excellent! The tile in the casita & the home is so spectacular….I think it is just perfect the way it is….thanks again HGTV….
With the sun rising at the opposite side, it doesn't look like it will be a major attention when i role out of bed. But the transparencies seem like a good idea should the need arise.
