flashing w/ glass blocks

On the brick house, I removed the old window, frame and all, down to the rough opening, bricks, and simply laid down a bed of the white block mortar, set the pre-maid block unit in, and mortared all around. On the frame house, I removed the window, left the outter-most frame, picked up one of those rolls of handy aluminum, bent it in place over the bottom of the frame, nailed it in place, and same procedure, bed of mortar, blocks, pack it in. I'm sure there's probably a more professional way on the frame house, but I just used clear caulk around the top & sides to seal... years ago, and no problems.
