It seems like at most you'd see silhouettes and they'd have to have a pretty powerful backlight and be very close to the window to show any kind of detail at all. Maybe just for the fraction of the day that your neighbour is showering, make a point of not looking. If it's really as bad as you say, get some proper curtains and close them at night. Food for thought: they can see through your sheers at night better than you can see through the frosted glass.


Me too!

“The bathroom faces my house (and damn near every window I have).”

Is your house only one dimension? My house has 4 exterior walls, each has windows.

Maybe you secretly enjoy it and don’t know what to do with your feelings?

Set up a live cam, put it on a website and sell advertising.

Be sure to let MAPearce know the web address give them a break from looking at porn hub.

Okay now.... When he looks at my house he sees us on the computer, washing dishes, eating and basically living,,, all fully clothed.

My neighbour on the other direct view has taken pictures and tried to tell them over the fence to much F u's. and 'want a piece of this ' attitude.

He is not clear enough to ID but you can tell he is all male and hairy. Believe me with a bright light behind him and a light in the shower stall he is a beacon in the night.

Yes my house has 4 walls but with that said at dinner time i'm in all the rooms with a view. That's it, tonight I'll take a picture.

I'm putting up blinds in the rooms today....
I thought I'd get more creative answers to this, but 'put up blinds- don't look- and take pictures ' have already crossed our minds. There are 3 homes and a walking path in direct view, I'm not alone in this.

We are box numbers here for mail so even the actual house address won't get through to them and they have a gate to stop people from getting to the door. Like I said not approachable at all.

Those who say this is an exaggeration , I understand but you are wrong. I can prove you are. Do you want this proof?
I am on here for help not more misery.

You can get the civic address and mailing address from the city. Might even get it from Google maps/street view.

I'm not sure what answer you were looking for...

You've had a lot of suggestions from, send a registered letter, show them pictures, by-law, blinds.
There's always going to be the token couple of posters that will pick apart your question, so you just need to filter that out.

My suggestion would be don't let the little things bother you. Ask yourself this, Is this hurting you? can you change it? NO
It's not hurting you or your neighbours, Try focusing more on the positive side of 6pm... Work day is finished and you are now spending quality time with your family.

Okay, so your question in the subject title is "what would you do"?

so this is what I would do, put up blinds..simple
if you have other neighbors and passer by's that indicated that they are bothered by it....well, that is their problem..not yours...
simple
you asked
I answered

you can buy frosted film (Home Depot has it) that you can put inside your windows (you just use soap and water)..

you will still have light showing thru but you nor anybody can see it or out..

works great !!

I get the frustration but my opinion is that this is no big deal. Certainly wouldn't keep me up nights. It's kinda funny really. And you can't worry about what other people see or don't see. That is their issue to deal with.

And interesting that you referred to him as a "fine" man even though he is behind frosted glass.

Actually in the light of day his window is NOT frosted at all. I can clearly see the bottle of shampoo on the window sill.

To me this just means he wants to be watched. Blinds are going up. The 2 old girls next door will still have their evening scotch and watch the show but I'm out....

I'm not sure what I was after either here. I guess I'm just frustrated at this naked beacon blarring into the darkness every night . It feels intrusive almost. A nice big evergreen tree will be between me and any future neighbours in my next house,.,.,.,.

I think you're on the right track here. Let the old girls have some fun. This guy absolutely wants to be seen so let him think people are watching.

Given the attitude you said he displays, he also sounds like a D-bag.

Buy 3 phoney security cameras and point them directly at the window, in plain sight. Sometimes, subliminal works better.

Hey good cause girl, have fun with it, call up some friends and have some drinks, and enjoy the show.
He obviously knows he's being watched, Is he worth watching? You could always point and start laughing at him, guys usually don't like that.

Make a party of it. Invite a bunch of friends over and have them sit in chairs lined up to see the "show", make popcorn and maybe even take a few pictures.

yes, yes I want proof.
If you ain't trolling you could follow any number of suggestions mentioned above.
Odd you know exactly the time he showers. With his hot Honey
Might not want to look out your window between that 12 minute time frame
Meanwhile, yea, yea I want your proof

Take a shower...hot or cold, it's up to you.

You said you are moving soon so I would just ignore it till then.
