larger because you don't have to put it in the air (Most basement windows tend to use anywhere from 8 to 15 blocks in a pre-Assembly part-Weight from 50 lbs.90 lbs per quarter).Most bathroom windows on the second floor tend to use 12 to 24 pieces, so you may want to choose a thinner piece thickness (2 "or 1/8 ")So the panels are lighter and easier to install.O the surrounding material that the

inside the frame, and the window frame will delete the size of your window.O create a new open block window and if you are creating a new open block window you want to start the end in your head.Select a specific block window system,pattern,design,And/or color, and find out from your glass block window manufacturer what size window panel will be after its manufacture.Then you will create
