I recently purchased my first home and I am realizing how many tasks I have to complete. One task perplexes me. The home was built in 1900 so it has some "character" to say the least. The problem is the bathroom. Note I said "the" bathroom. There is only one, in a 2000 sq.ft., three bedroom, duplex. The problem is that it is small, like microscopic. Well anyway there is a vanity, a toilet and a shower stall that has been boxed in b/c the window in the bathroom would not allow clearance to put the stall in the corner. So now I need to somehow open this up. I was thinking about a hexagonal shower stall or arched sliding door corner stall, but once again the stall will not clear the bathroom window. Here is the basic shape.

1 1 SINK 1 1 1 1


So I was considering using one wall and facing the door to the window, this will make more room, but it will not solve the problem of opening up the bathroom. The only other option which I would like to do in the future is expand the bathroom out from the terminal hallway and into the part of the adjacent room. Any suggestions would help.
