Lightyear Sunken Bath Episode 3 – Glass Blocks

Parts are stacking up. The new water heater, the jacuzzi, inline heater, doors and drywall.

Meanwhile demo and construction continues. This bath suffers from a spectacular lack of natural light. We will fix that.  Since we have this east wall and some glass block, we will bring in some morning light.  The original plan was to equally space the blocks across the long
wall. That changed to Plan B when I discovered that one of the filled
courses(a common technique in concrete block construction) was in the
middle of one of the openings. Also typical is the interior framing which is 2×2’s attached to the block with cut nails.

So now the blocks will be grouped together. The bath area has a soffit for electric runs and as a detail and the hole for the east glass blocks is open.

We are also installing one in the toilet area as well.
