Thanks, looks like I will just leave the Fi Foil in place on all walls. Now the only thing left is to decide on std white drywall vs cement board. Tradeoffs being:

Drywall:

Recommended Kerdi substrate
Onsite already and being hung
Easy installation
No new material choices (some of which are more toxic for this healthy home)
Inspection hurdles
Stigma with subs


Cement board:

More moisture tolerant
Heavier
In some cases nasty dust
No county inspection issues
More accepted here
More chemicals
