I am working on adding a shower in the attic. The hard part is that the attic ceiling is at an angle, and I am looking to find options for the shower door. Could anyone suggest any solutions to that?

Home Depot has rectangular tempered glass panels, but I found they can't be cut and I can't use annealed glass as per code. Are there any other options for shower doors?

Below is the shape of the door that I'm looking to use. Shower Door Shape

    They will make tempered-glass custom units if you go to a specialty shop (defs not HD or other big-box store). I know, I used to sell them. Have you considered a shower curtain as the low $$ option? Dec 31, 2020 at 3:10

    @JimmyFix-it - they have options like this in big box online and things like overstock.com. Also you could just think about the door height ending at the angle.

    Look up "custom glass" in Google Maps. Assuming your attic, like most, is cramped and the shower stall is not huge, it will be nice for the users to have a door rather than a curtain intruding, and the cost of this might uplift the whole attic living experience and be worth it.

You might consider a longer shower base - we found one about 1.2m long and 80 wide which meant we did not need a door at all as there was very little splash out.

And we had this with a sloped ceiling as well, the shower head had to be in the top corner as I am 6ft plus - for my (ex)wife that was not an issue.
