If you're not wrapping the tile around the corner, you should use a drywall corner bead there.

I'd use a 1/4" square notch on those because of the length of the tile.

The other is up to you. With a ledger board that is level all the way around, you could do an entire wall if you want, then...

Given your location in California, my first thought was that the first picture was part of the hot mop waterproofing.

I see that this is a zero-entry shower, but it looks like maybe there's a...

Depending on how it was installed, I might consider removal and replacement with a bit more slope.

If it's otherwise installed properly and the waterproofing layer might be compromised during...

Is this going over concrete or wood subfloor? If it's a wood subfloor, you should figure in the height of a tile backer.

I would towel-dry the walls and floor after each use. This won't keep moisture from getting past the tile, but it can reduce the amount of moisture that does.

As a side benefit, it can also help...

Welcome to the forum, Shane. :)

I think I understand correctly that the long edge of the tile runs the 45', and it goes through the doorway. Correct me if I'm wrong.

So does the door split...

Welcome to the forum, Shawn. :)

I'm not sure you have the proper drain for a tile shower. I can't see the lower part, so I can't say one way or the other.

I'd break out the concrete around...

With mortar between two almost-impervious surfaces, I'd wait a couple of days. If you need to walk across a traffic area, lay a sheet of plywood over it the next day to walk on. (At $60-70 a sheet,...

So with regard to the waterproofing where it meets the window, was there any gap at all, even a tiny bit where water can get through? If there is, I'd remove the tile around the window and fix that....

Yes, it looks like a bench that will have the same issues as the curb. Any fasteners on a horizontal surface is going to be a problem.

So did you cut a separate piece to go over the drain? Your floor piece should have easily covered it.

Here's my thinking on the spot you show as leaking. Assuming that's the only place, then it...

Hello, Neal.

To make it easy on yourself, just use silicone for all those transitions. I would probably match the grout color when possible. And on the wall mounted sink you could match the sink...
