Glass wall up against framed wall?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build a glass shower enclosure and have looked through a bunch of posts. 

 

I can't find a way to have a continuous run of walls in which there is a transition from a standard framed wall to a glass wall without the end of the framed wall being exposed... any help appreciated!

Red line points to a Room Divider wall.

 

Pull the glass wall back so it does not automatically connect. Draw the Room Divider, then snap the glass back.

Draw 2 room dividers around the glass wall forming a room. Turn off the molding in this room.

Move the walls 1/64" away from the glass.

Thanks guys!

Both look great. I'm a bit.. ah... well, call it what you like, but a 1/64" gap drives me crazy :)

cheers

Ok - tried these out... does Home Designer Pro allow selective molding in a room (just some walls) ?

No. That's why the trick with the invisible walls and 1/64" spacing. You are creating a tiny room with no moldings.
