The way it's supposed to be done is mesh tape in the corner, thinset in place, but the corner not filled. I think that's the same thing as what Kevin said.

It will still add a little strength to...

One thing that you could do is semi-recess it so it's maybe 1-2 inches in the wall with insulation behind it. Then have a sill, or shelf, at the bottom that protrudes out a bit.

I'm not sure why your wall is shimmied out so far. I would start by screwing the edge of the drywall with drywall screws. Hopefully, you can get 1/16-1/8 inch from that.

Then you'll have to shim...

What I do is use 2-inch mesh tape on all seams and corners. It helps to strengthen the joint a little bit but keep the buildup to a minimum.

For me, a 3-inch cut isn't a reason to stray from a full tile at the door. What you have is a 5x8 bathroom. So a toilet is taking up roughly 50% space next to the tub. Additionally, there is usually...

You can either install...
