Did one recently but no glass. Shower is open with no transition except a long floor drain.

go with glass block instead. that glass will forever be covered in soap film and be cloudy so its going to be a supreme PITA to keep clean. glass block is a distorted view so it wont show soap scum as much and maint will be much less of an issue. cost will be dramatically lower for glass block vs glass wall

Just did a frameless corner enclosure for about $2K.

re: any recent bathroom remodels in here
Several years ago I turned a tub space into a 4' by 6'handicap shower.

It has existing walls on three sides, so for the opening I installed a 36" glass door on the side that has the shower head and handle. I left the rear 36" open.

The reason I went with a door instead of a glass wall is to be able to turn on the shower from the side so I won't get blasted with cold water every time I turn it on. I open the door about 1/2 way until I can reach the shower handle, close the door then walk thru the open side in about 20 seconds when the water is at the right temp.

I have a delta shower handle that you set the temp. once and so all you do is turn on the handle and in about 20 seconds the temp is perfect.

I'd do something like that for around $1100. I am on the higher end of things in my market, so YMMV. A panel that large is going to require some sort of head support. It'd have too much flex in without it and I wouldn't trust anyone who says you can get away without head support. Your most typical form of head support on something like that is a support bar going back to the wall like the picture below. You can sometimes do a 45 degree support bar back to the wall as well.

As for the soap scum issue, just spray some rain-x on the glass every once in a while. They also make a coating we can apply in the factory to repel dirt with a 10 year warranty, but it gets pricey. I charge $8/sf to apply it. It works well, but I don't sell a lot because of the price of the stuff.

I'm a name in glass. CAD's kind about the "the" part. We're good, though. Really good, imo. I know my opinion is skewed, but I like to think I can objectively critique our work. Hit me up on the back channels at my username at gmail if you want to know more.

Build regular walls and use a shower curtain.

We spent a lot of money on Kohler wall panels and a fancy glass door, and we deeply regret it.

Wasted thousands

Get you a squeegee...makes maintaining glass doors/walls much easier. Squeegee it off after use and helps keep it looking great.

If you are not willing to take that extra 15 seconds at the end of a shower to keep that expensive glass up...maybe design for a shower curtain.
