Hi how easy is it to put a window in a bathroom if it's on an external wall!? Why wouldn't you put one in in the first place? Thanks

we considered enlarging the window opening in our cloakroom so that we could actually get a window fitted that could open.
would have been hideously expensive, and requiring planning permission+building control.
we decided to go with an extractor fan instead (still cost 500£ for a days labour and parts)

Would it overlook neighbours or was it a new build built to spec as if a terrace. It allows a more flexible layout. An internal bathroom isn't an issue for everyone although I prefer a window.

I've got an internal bathroom. I'd prefer a window to be honest if you can do it. Do it 😊

It's a new build that is end terrace. Just find it odd that if you could put one in as a builder why wouldn't you ?

If it's a new build I'm guessing all the houses in the terrace are to an identical design - so you don't have a window because none of the others could, if that makes sense.

in our case (victorian terrace) the bathroom is in the end bit overlooking the neighbours cloakroom window. hence pp required.
