For those who have bedrooms that are recessed in their condo (so bedrooms that are not against the outside of the building and thus do not have windows) these bedrooms still need a "window" to constitute as a bedroom by code.
How this is being done in our condos is that the bedroom wall facing towards the exterior of the building has bas been made into a clear glass wall with a glass sliding door. This voids any privacy for that bedroom as people in the rest of the house have a full view of the interior entire bedroom.
For an example check out Perry's photos above. It is the room beside his refrigerator.
People are upset because the plans led us to believe it was going to be a solid drywall with a frosted glass sliding door, not a clear glass wall with a clear glass door that offers no privacy.
As well, if we frost the glass ourselves within the first year of occupancy, we will void the warranty on the glass.
People aren't happy about the glass wall not be explicitly shown from the beginning.
Thanks. fortunately, that doesn't apply to me. All rooms have windows except washroom, laundry room and WIC....I was worried they were referring to the sliding glass doors to balconies/patios.
Personally, I'd be more pissed about the giant access panel in his bathroom ceiling. Really hoping they hide that in my laundry room. You can't do anything about that.
