Yup, same page, Kent, you'll want those corner joints to be about 1/8th of an inch.

The goal is not to fill the void completely, but enough that the caulking will adhere to the edge of one tile...

Bummer, Shannon.

The first thing I'd do, Jake, is make sure you can get all that old sealant off the tub well enough that it looks presentable. Doing that might be a challenge; the tub appears to be cast iron and...

I re-read the last page or so and to be honest I'm not entirely sure where you are now, Will.

Under cutting the jambs produces a cleaner look, Pete, I'd strive to do so. Won't matter if there's no Ditra under it, IMO, it won't be walked on.

No reason you can't give it a try, Tino, as long as those cut edges will be hidden by baseboard or other trim.

No idea if the DW blade is "good", but if your cuts will be hidden by trim you don't...

Good point about the new water proof Hardie, cx, but if it does have some sort of coating on it I'd want to know how well RD will adhere to it. Perhaps CBP has tested it.
