You could also try searching "ofuro" which is the term for a traditional japanese soaking tub.

Can you tell us what brand the windows are? Look like aluminum - thanks!

Cathy Schwabe Architecture
These windows are aluminum -- they are made by a great company in Sacramento, CA called Blomberg. They are a terrific company to work with and make wonderful windows. Their tech services dept is great -- and they will help you with any kind of window design question you might have. The windows on this house almost all combine several different types of operation -- for example this window has a fixed upper lite over an lower lite that is an inswinging hopper -- not something shown in their catalogue but easy for them to do. I really enjoy working with them.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Why Is There a Bathtub in the Backyard?
Architect Cathy Schwabe's clients for the home shown here love getaway weekends at places with private outdoor spas, and they brought a similar sanctuary to their own house. She created privacy with louvers, sliding doors and planters in this second-story garden. The greater garden area is also full of edible plants. "Bathing outside, whether soaking in the tub or standing under the shower, is quite the amazing experience, and is not something we do much, after a very young age, without a swimsuit," Schwabe says. "Imagine starting the day by taking a steam shower, then walking out the glass door to the outdoor shower to cool off, and stopping to graze on berries and various stone fruit before returning to get dressed to go to the office."
