Adding Glass Blocks to a plasterboard internal wall

Postby ddavies » Tue Feb 17, 2009 11:12 am

To add more natural light to our hall, stairs and landing I am considering cutting a window sized hole in the "bathroom" plasterboard wall and adding a couple of rows of glass blocks.
My questions are:
1. How would you begin a project like this
2. I was hoping the glass blocks would end up flush with the plasterboard on both walls, but am told they are not as thick as this and therefore a small sill would be required.
3. Is there anything i should watch out for / be aware of before i begin this project?
Thanks all.

Simply Build It

You could do this but you'll probably need to add additional noggins in the stud wall where the blocks will be which will mean stripping the plasterboard off one side.
