Big news! Today when I got home from work there was a giant pane of glass in the trash pile. I asked my contractor where it came from and he said it was in the wall between the trap door room and the bathroom. So I’ve made the decision to put it back up! The new bathroom will now have sunlight! I was originally concerned that having a window in the bathroom that leads to the creepy trap door/basement room, but I think ultimately having natural daylight in the room is more important. I can frost the window to give more of a sense of privacy and reduce the creepy haunted feeling of having a basement on the other side of the bathroom.
