Installing stand up shower

Hi everyone.

My previous shower was a Fiberglas insert...very small. I tore it out and went to Costco and bought a prefab shower pan and glass doors by EVO.

My issue is I now realize that since the shower door sits in the curb of the shower pan, one side of the door will have a wall to mount to (after tiled) while the other side as you can see from the photos I will post there is NO place for the shower door to attach to (no wall there). At the end of the white shower pan in the photo is where a bench will be built. My question is what are you suggestions as to how to have this shower door attach to the one side. Can I some how built a wall there or make the small space in front of the shower pan (near where the tile floor is) and the shower door on that?

In this photo you will see the left corner of the pan is there the sliding glass door sits although clearly there is no plate to mount it to on the wall.(this side is my issue)

In this photo the right corner of the pan is where sliding glass door will fit and you can see there will be a wall there to mount the door to

The vertical walls at each end of the shower pan should be in line with the pan itself, not sticking out into the room. You can build another wall inboard of the existing wall, if you can't move the one you have. Since you are building a bench at the tail end, you will need to move that wall in anyway.

Do you mean the wall with the white pipe I have to add another wall onto that basically to remove the amount of space in front of the pan, then have to remove the little bit of existing wall in front of the pan to make room for the pan?
