hack of all trades
Apologies in advance, this is kind of an ignorant question... I've never worked with glass block before. I'm adding two simple "windows" in a newly built exterior wall. Is it practical to make your own mortar mix? I have lime, Portland, and sand. Obviously not white, but this is for my own place, not a customer, so I'm not sure that I mind grey. All I'm installing are two vertical lines of 6 blocks, 8x8s. Can I build a wood frame or is there a metal track that's more preferable?
