Frameless Glass shower with unwanted support shelf

There's no way you can have it like the way you want unless you install the fixed glass all the way to the ceiling for support.

Just because you go custom doesn't mean you can go fixed price regardless of material price increases.

What's your relationship/contract with your builder?
I ask because why are you wearing any material price increases?

Just to add to that, 570lm is a joke for the price.

No difference in price or ease of installation.

With brick or most other cladding I doubt a thermal break would help very much.

I think dynabolts are more likely to work their way loose overtime.
I use to use dynabolts until I started using masonary screws.
Check out the Ramset website for application/sizes.
