Not much you can do at this point, Bird, other than cut some 1" strips from the wall tile to fill that gap, or find a contrasting tile to do it. If I were faced with that I'd use the wall tile.

You'll need to scribe the tile...

I think mine's the 3B2, Shawn, and it did save me a bunch of time but it never left a clean, wet saw like edge. Could have been the tile I was cutting or, more probable, my inexperience with it.

I think I'd still caulk it, Lenny, keep whatever moisture there is from migrating up and getting between the pipe and the drywall and festering.

I'd not even hesitate to use an acrylic caulk to seal that small gap, Lenny, it's not going to see any water and it isn't going to cleaned with sponges or cleaners. All it's tasked with is keeping...

Though I'm not keen on using the Schluter profiles (but did have to use a couple of short lengths in my recent MB overhaul) they are certainly better than exposed tile edges. You could also splurge...

Wording can be everything. LOL. Sorry if mine caused confusion.

Is that a gang of 3 switches back there in the corner of the toilet area?

You'll also want to use the straightest, and driest 2X4's you can for the half wall. Doing so will help prevent it from moving out of plumb as the 2X's dry out more.

Still no guarantee it won't....

I also wouldn't lay tile on top of 5/8" ply under a washing machine, perhaps not even on 3/4".
