Thanks for note. Based on your posting - what are "the correct materials" for the wall to be made free-standing, and what are the ledge/lip design requirements to which you are referring?

: Your 4' wall is not going to be high enough. If you use the correct materials the wall can be made free-standing, but it has to be placed on a broperly designed ledge.

: : 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.
