Q: I just moved into a great apartment. The only caveat is that one whole side of my apartment has windows that are directly across from other windows in the neigboring building. I've installed the non-stick privacy "filter screens" which are great, but it's also winter here in Canada. So when summer comes and I have to open the windows for ventilation… I will have zero privacy. Does anyone know of either an already built, sliding screen I could install or some screen that I could make a DIY custom frame with, so the neighbors can not see in at night (when I have lights on), but the air can flow through?
