Question: Why would the crazy homeowners (I mean my husband and I in case there's any question about who we're talking about here) install a toilet in their utility room? (I'm having flashbacks to some house we lived in that had a toilet in a strange place (which we removed)... but for some reason I can't remember it clearly.) Answer: No, it's not so they can see the snow outside while using the bathroom.
I'll give you one hint. The picture below is our front entry. The closed door is a bathroom. The room behind that is a dining room.
