New Bathroom, need info on the shower/bath

Hello All,
I have a new floor I added to my house. Just about ready for insulation.
But before that I need to finish the rouge-in of the new bathroom.
The bathroom will have a double sink vanity/ toilet/ shower/ corner tub(I have the tub, not installed yet).
One of the shower walls is next to the corner tub. I would like to use glass block for that wall.
My questions are:

1. I should start the glass block at the tub deck height or should it start 12" above the tub deck?

2. Should the glass block go all the way to the ceiling or should I leave a 12" gap from ceiling to glass block?

If you need to see a picture of the bathroom go here: http://www.quadcells.com/images/Picture%20182.jpg

looking at the tub in the picture the shower will be to the left, still shows the 2x6 studs.
I apreciate any comments.
Thanks in advance

quadcells,

It becomes a matter of choice. What do you like?

I like taking glass block only to a 6' 6" - 7' height and leaving a space to ceiling. This assists in the exhaust fan removing as much moisture as possible. It also looks nice, more like a California style.

Placing the glass block on top of a partition wall like my one photo is an option, but as you suggested maybe 12" up from the tub deck. This would allow for you to tile the perimeter. Again it is based on what you like and how you will acheive that final look.

I was wondering why you didn't place cement board on top of your frame for your tub. I assume you are going to tile. Take a look at these for some insight. Just wondering what you had in mind.

Hope this helps!

Doug,
Thanks for your reply.
The tub in the picture was just placed there and is not installed yet. Yes I was planning to put cement board down.
Thanks for the pictures.
The 2nd and 3rd pics look nice. I'll show that to my wife.
I like the tile going up the wall then the glass, and the glass going up 6' 6".

Thanks again for your help.
