Paul, I've read through all seventeen pages of this post. Much value in this thread.

Thanks,

Question

Paul, I don't understand how you got the niche in the corner. What happened to the vertical stud that was in the corner? The studs in my shower stall are out almost two inches from the perpendicular wall.

Cut out the offending stud. Normally 'california corners' are made from 3+ studs, nailed together* as in the diagram below. That means the offending sutd can be cut out with little affect on the structural strength of the column. When cutting out the stud, we cut higher than we know the niche will be, and lower. To keep things solid, we replace the missing stud with internal blocking (if needed) to keep the wood from curling later.


*we add screws for strength and stability

I like the way it looks, but I'm not certain about removing that stud. I don't have 3 studs nailed together.

Thanks ,

Did anyone ever build a niche with foam to foam connections (peeled away orange) and take pics?

So in conclusion, you're all good as long as you kerdi band the corners?
