We had a friend who was forever building on to his house...in all manner of crazy ways...had a neon sign on the roof he lit at parties, but I digress.
For the longest time the bathing facilities and toilet stood completely unenclosed in the middle of the living space. Could be seen from everywhere except bedrooms! It was always gay men who lived there and they apparently didn't mind. We women used to support each other by encircling the one using the Loo, facing out. If we had dresses it was easier. I always wore long tops or skirts if I knew I might be the only woman there.
I think most of the visiting guys went in the garden.
