bathroom design with steam shower

I was wanting to bounce some ideas off you guys to see if this is feasible or if there is more cost effect ways to do what I have planed.

the bathroom floor tile will be 24x24" tile the shower will be barrier free (bathroom will receive ARDEX-wood 2" overlay and the shower area will be damned off during the pour and will receive a mud floor after)

I want to do a glass enclosure from the floor to the ceiling, the ceiling height is 9' but I will create a sofit over the shower for a Kohler rain head and to slope it for the steam run off.

Questions I had are

1. Is it possible to carry the 24x24 tile into the shower using a channel drain or should I switch to a smaller tile in the shower area (how does that look does anyone have a picture of a barrier free shower when it switches to a different tile)

2. In a steam shower is it better to slope the soffit all one way or to create a "gabled" soffit

What Paul said. Also, slope style is up to you. Either way is functional. And glass is really not great for keeping in heat. Even my lowE argon filled windows transmit a lot of cold in the winter. You will want to look into getting a larger steam unit than you would think for the cubic space.
