These glass blocks will need to anchor to the ceiling in my opinion or you will have a weak structure.

    This Pony wall as well should be a tank to begin with. What size glass block will you be using?

    Do you have access from below? Who will be doing the framing or wood work?

    What size tile have you chossen? For this layout I would be looking at 4"x4" or 2"x2" tile for a standard drain or Kerdi Drain. If you prefer larger format tile a channel drain or some extra tile cuts will be needed to make the pitch work.

    Are you building a bench in that back corner? Any Shampoo niches?

    I know what flush means, but not sure I get the distinction your talking about.
    6x6 for walls, 1x1 or 2x2 for floor.
    The glass block is 8x8x4. One wall will have 24 blocks, the other 18. Wanted to stop these walls about a foot short of the ceiling, any way to do that?
    Yes, a bench in the corner. Two niches.
    No access from below, and I'm doing the framing.

    So it's time to build my pony walls. One will be 25" wide and 35" tall, the other will be 33" wide and 35" tall. Both will be perpendicular to the floor joists and each will attach to full height walls on one end. Is there a way to make these walls rigid without opening up the floor to attached studs to the floor joists?
