I've begun a gut rehab of a 100 year old bathroom, and I'm going nice and slow to make sure everything is done right. I'm at the point now where I am preparing the room for tile. We put in a new glassblock window in the shower, on an exterior brick wall. There are 3 courses of bricks, so the wall is plenty thick, and then there is the framing I built on that, so you can see a nice deep recess for the pending shelf. Check this picture. If you notice up in the upper right hand corner, the mortar line is thicker on the right versus the left - it seems that the window is out of square or set out of level. There is a ~5/16" difference from left to the right. I've rechecked many many times, and the framed area I built and covered with Hardi is quite square and level. I'm afraid when I go to tile over the Hardi, the line between the glass and the tile will be noticeable as they won't run parallel. Any ideas how to camouflage that? I've got a horribly critical eye, and I know I will see it every time I'm in the bathroom.
