Install a glass block window
Over the years the window above a bathtub in an older home succumbs to exposure to moisture and its wooden frame and sill rot away. Replacing the window with a glass block unit designed for the job is a good solution because it allows light in from the outside while providing privacy inside. The replacement unit is an all-in-one pre-constructed glass block window laid up and framed into easy-to-install vinyl jambs and come in dozens of standard sizes. You'll find them where building materials are sold at lumber yards and home centers.
