Well in my last post I showed you the basics and mechanics of the shower.   The Can-Wall is about 5.5 feet high now, and is being topped with glass blocks.  Picture below…

Progress has been a little slower than one might like because after laying 3 – 4 courses of cans into wet mortar the stability is compromised.   It has to set and dry for at least 24 hours before more courses are added.  So now you’re probably asking “What is that blue thing with a plug sticking out of the wall?”  Well, it was decided that although this living space is temporary and utilitarian, a little splash of style was in order.   The next picture will help explain the presence of this strange blue thing…

Basically a blue-LED rope-light was embedded in the mortar between the glass blocks to give a nice ambient light that refracts through the blocks.  Once the final coat of stucco and sealant has been applied to the whole wall it will be seamless.   More to come…
