Bricking over glass block windows issue
 
2 Attachment(s)

Hi all...very new to these forums, but I was looking for some help with my bathroom renovation. I know this could probably go into a few different categories, but it's mostly about securing the outside.

I'm doing a full renovation down to the studs of my bathroom (house was built in 1944) and I want to install only two rows of glass blocks (preferably the top 2 rows) and close off the rest. If I made a T in there w/2x4's (one going horizontal to the floor, and the other going perpendicular), putting plywood & Tyvek on the outside, and insulation & drywall on the inside...I would then have someone come fill in the outside with bricks. Is that good enough?

Attached are pics of both outside & inside to reference.

Thanks,
Peter
