Thanks Donna and Pat for this info. Good resources and nice curtain! A quick call to Little House Customs confirms that they no longer sell these types of curtains anymore. Nuts. So Pat, just curious how the unit installs onto the window frame? It looks flat on top so.....is it some sort of rod that clamps on or screws on to the window frame? Thanks in advance! - Bea

Hi Bea ! I took a few pictures for you to show the material , the little bumps are rubberized . I believe his wife made the curtains . If you are a sewer I am sure you can figure it out .
On the back of the curtain there was installed little snaps so you can remove if needed to wash . The other end has the other snap on a plastic L shaped frame . I just had to loosen the top screws a little and push the one end down and then tighten screws . There was no caulking or butyl involved in inside frame . But it would still work just a little harder to push down if they installed the window differently . Only my outside frame has the butyl .
Our curtain has been up for about 4-5 years now . Linda just unsnapped curtain , leaving attachment frame alone , to wash . She hung it up wet after wash and material dries fine . Hope this helps . Pat

I do not understand the need for a curtain with a frosted window, the awning does not open that far and if it is a slider, just close the window while in use? Your door window is also frosted.

And, what is the point of the window if you're going to block the light when you are in the bathroom?

When you are in the shower with light on at night , your shadow can be seen outside and a idea what you are doing . Pat

If you look at the picture it doesn’t totally block your light in daylight . It is bright enough with curtain in daylight to not have to turn light on . My picture was this morning without light on . Pat

Why is this an issue? Is there something unique about what you are doing?

Very helpful!!! I do sew (very simple things) so this gives me a great place to start. Thank you so much for the explanation and more pictures!

Precisely! Now I clip a washcloth to cover the window, for more privacy at night when showering....but your curtain looks really nice. Thanks again for the inspiration, Pat!

Just got my first build photos that show the kitchen window, the bathroom window and the front window. Guess I just like windows.

What about your door window? Shadows there? I never thought that shadows were more than that......

Jim I we are not showering or using a bathroom where you can be seen through door window . Don’t care . However there is a lined curtain that helps with the cold coming through the door . So if it is cold you can’t even see shadows with that one . Pat

It would be helpful if the bathroom window opened from the top down. It's kinda weird to be sittin' and looking out through the screen in the window. It's times like that you hope you're not in a jam packed RV park.

Frankly, if someone really wants to look at me through a window, obscure like the bath, smoked like the cabin, or even clear, then I say go for it. I am not all that worthy of watching, nor do I care if folks do.

Someone once told me, if they've seen it before they've probably seen better. If they've never seen it they don't know what it is. Don't know how this applies, but I'm laughing
