Google images "built up crown".


My thought would be to have a horizontal surface that you butt tile into, an upside down ledge of sorts.

What would I do? I would have planned not to have it happen, but that ship has sailed in your case.

I might have the transition from backer to drywall be the hub of the decision wheel. One target needs to take precedence or it becomes a tail chasing exercise.

I know diddly about pools (although it looks nice) but the drip edge slot is a brilliant way to direct water off the face of the stone.

Sounds like a plan. Wall framing might prevent a 3 gang box. But, if possible, I like to place switches away from outlets anyway. So a single and a double or three singles could work.

Cindy, this is common in the remodeling I do. I always plan on moving outlets up. Anything else looks like a mistake or screams "look at ME".

As I see it you have two concerns here. Judging by the construction, I'm betting old house. Perhaps '50s or earlier.

Not sure what DGA is, but aggregate is compacted, sand on top usually not. If this area was backfilled, that earth should probably have been compacted as well. It will settle and cause problems.
