The idea of getting a glass door for your house is probably a familiar one to anyone who has ever had to leave their house with a cracked glass door.
But what if you could get a glass floor for just a few dollars?
Glass flooring is a popular material for the home, but you’re probably already aware that many companies sell it for under $2 per square foot.
And you probably already know that it’s a very effective way to reduce the number of times you have to open the door for water, electricity, and trash collection.
However, what if a glass-flooring installation costs a fraction of that?
A glass floor can be as simple as a simple tile or as elaborate as a custom-made wall with an entire floor built out of the same material.
But with a few simple steps, you can make a really nice looking floor in just a couple of hours!
Step 1: Cut and drill out a 2×6-inch (5×7-cm) hole for the front door.
Cut a 2×6-foot (5×7-metre) hole in the back of the door, and then drill two 1/2-inch holes into the bottom of the hole.
Step 2: Make a piece of PVC pipe from a 1/4-inch diameter and 1/8-inch thick piece of glass.
Wrap the PVC pipe around the glass and fasten it to the glass frame with the two 1-inch-diameter (5-metric-centimetre) holes.
Step 3: Secure the PVC and glass frame to the door frame with 2 1-foot-wide (4-metrical-centimeter) bolts.
This will make the glass doors slide into place.
Step 4: Apply a thin coat of paint on the inside of the frame, then cover the entire frame with a clear coat of spray-on clear vinyl.
This is called a “glazed” finish, and you can even use vinyl adhesive for the finish.
Step 5: Cut a small hole in each of the two 3-inch corners of the glass door frame, and secure the frame to your house with screws.
Step 6: Glaze the inside and out of each side of the doors with clear vinyl (like a clear adhesive).
Step 7: Finish the glass with a thin clear coat that covers the entire surface.
The finished glass doors should look like this: Step 8: Paint the inside (front) and outside of the hinges with clear adhesive.
To add some contrast to the exterior, add a layer of clear vinyl to the front of the front doors and glue the vinyl to both the sides of the hinge, and to the hinges of the sliding glass doors.
Glaze with clear plastic for a final finish.
