Shower door shorter than opening. Method?

Recommended Posts

A common thing in showers everywhere.  See attached photo.

 

Door shorter by maybe a foot, in this case, door at 80 inches, opening at 96.

 

No way in the door spec dialog to do this, I believe.  What's your favorite method for getting this look?

Draw an 8' doorway and suppress the interior casing.  Then copy and paste+hold, and change one of the doorways to a hinged glass door.  Change the height of the glass door to 7' tall.

 

In plan view, you'll never notice a difference.

I use Cabinet Soffits to make the Shower Enclosures and change them to "Standard Glass" ,and 3/8" thick.... works well the door is a single panel so can be whatever height you desire.
