options for a not so squared shower.. glass door


i built a DIY standing shower in the basement and i now need a shower door to complete the project. i thought i was going to do a frameless glass showerdoor but it appears that i did not built the wall not soooo straight. long story short, so i thought i was doing something fancy with the left wall by doing a 2 part wall (13inches from the ceiling and waist height form the floor) leaving a gap for a glass panel in the middle.. the problem is that since my floor is not very flat, the 2 wall pieces are at slight different angles. this leaves the door opening itself to be 30 inches at the top while 31 inches at the bottom..FAWWWWKKKKKK!!!!!! so what can i do to fit a door in there.. is glass door still an option? i'm considering hanging in a shower curtain to hide my shame..

tx for the advice.

Custom glass shop can make a glass door to fit just about any space.

Post up a picture.

a custom glassshop will run me close to $1600.. at this point, is it even worth it to hand a glass door there?

Yes--there is adjustment on the catch side--some have as much as an inch--

also some adjustment on the hinge side--

Get the installation instructions--or look at the actual right and left side tracks to see for your self.

Check out wilson glass...they make custom/to order glass enclosures that they ship to you as a DIY install. I've heard great things about them and intend to use them for my shower when I get to that point.

thanks for the help. i've emailed wilson glass for a quote. currently i'm considering a lower door (65 inches) instead of the standard 72. this will allow me to have door slightly below the top wall.. hopefully that will address the issue.
