Lightbulb How to do corner shower walls, curtains, and glass partition

We're putting in a 32" x 40" shower base as pictured, and we'd like to have a glass wall on the side facing the vanity and a shower curtain on a track from the ceiling on the side facing the toilet. We'd like to use products from a home center and not spend too much money. Any ideas on the simplest options for the walls and partition would be most welcome.

Here's what the room ACTUALLY looks like. The white cardboard is a template of the shower base dimensions. We don't mind moving the shower plumbing. The toilet's too close to the wall, but we're not going to move it.

May I suggest that you have the shower curtain face the vanity instead. That way you can make the shower handicapped accessible. E. L. Mustee will have everything that you need. It really won't be that much more expensive unless you go for the shower body that remembers the temperature of your last shower which is pure heaven.

A stand alone glass wall is not very sturdy as a single flat pane, frameless showers gather their strength from having a 90 degree turn where two glass panels meet each other. I also think that you will be hard pressed to find those items at a box store. I would look to a semi frameless with a glass door incorporated instead of a curtain. I also note the lack of wood framing at the area where the base meets the wall to attach structurally any form of anchor to hold up the glass that you plan on installing.
