    Nothing like being on the crapper and have everyone watch you through a glass wall.

    It is all bad.

    Erm... That picture below with the frosted glass? That's the window when someone is in the bathroom. They can do that with an electric current.


    However.

    Horrible. Just horrible.


    That is a shitload of badly designed space.

    I just don't get the point here. Let's fuck up our perfectly nice home by squeezing in a shipping container with a crapper and a murphy bed? WTF?
