Basement Glass Block Windows

Posted by jesse276 (My Page) on

I'm considering getting glass block basement windows for the sides of my house. My home was built in 1912 & I try to keep up historic details whenever possible... although I'm practical about it.

I don't really like the look of glass block but I appreciate its durability, low-maintenance & security. I'll be keeping the windows in the front & back as traditional windows, so I'll have plenty of ventilation if needed.

So, I'm thinking if there was a single, large glass block... it would look better than 12-15 smaller blocks. Has anyone seen this available or heard of such a thing?

No, I haven't although for the size I am picturing of 12-15 blocks seems like it could be doable.
