Welcome to the forum, Mike.

I don't simply butt that joint like you did. It's not bad if it worked and didn't cause any crumbling of grout that slightly overlaps the joint.

I run the Durock outside the tiled area (a few inches to a foot or so) where it meets the drywall. You can tape and finish that joint with drywall mud. Often, I'll figure out where the tile will stop and tape off the Durock just inside that line. This allows me to tape/mud the joint...along with painting before I install the tile. When the tile goes in, it just overlaps onto the paint for a super clean look...just like yours...but with less chance of cracks.

Tonto Goldstein... but my friends call me Bubba

Help an awesome summer camp!
