Glass Block Question
Posted by Nicole on December 08, 2003 at 21:39:53:
We are converting a tub area to a walk in shower (which will be the same size as the original tub space). We would like the wall facing the bathroom to be a glass block 1/2 wall (approx. 4" high) with a small space to walk in on the end away from the shower head. (no door).

Our question is what type of base do we need to use for the glass block wall. Right now we have a simple shower lip with 2 pre-treated 2X4's stacked on top of each other. Can we begin stacking the blocks on top of this base or do we need something wider?

Also - we don't want a wooden frame at the top of the wall if possible so it is simply a glass line. Is this possible or do we need to frame the wall in to have enough support?

Any help you can give will be great! Thanks.
