Yeah, this is what I was thinking about as well (water sipping through the corner), and hence the question. I may just bend it into the backwall and do a foot or so...

The CBU is taped. I must embarrassingly admit that it came out a tad too thick to my taste and I sanded it down a little. I used the same thinset I am tiling with (custom's large natural stone). My rational was the same thinset Custom recommends should be used both below and above the redguard, but, it is much coarser than other thinsets.

I still need to tape the drywall.

Gonna tile this weekend but I realized I haven't posted redgard pictures. It was definitely more involved / time consuming since i last redgard'd 5 years ago. USG seems to have changed Durock's surface. The surface has all these mini-holes that take much longer to fill (see pics below). Painting/rolling it on didn't do anything. I ended up using a wide drywall knife (vs. a trowel) and doing multiple alternating layers. Given the mini-holes there was no point to use a wet thickness gauge. I ended up relying on sqf coverage to apply the right amount (1 full gallon + 3/4" of another gallon).

Interesting right?

I am assuming the holes are to help with thinset adhesion. I wonder if for redgard application it make sense to use the opposite smooth "mastic" durock side?

- Redgard applied
- walls are taped, spackled and painted. I had to spackle over the CBU to drywall transition with a straight edge in place (simulating the trim) to fill up to the seam.
- Light is installed (I figured it is better to tile with the final light fixture in place)
- Schluter trim is installed (held temporarily with hot glue).
- Mock tile layout is done

That would depend a good deal upon the style of the fixture, Dan.

One with 8 4000K daylight LEDs
The camera is compensating, but it is hospital like bright. Got sick from the Mrs. saying "I can't see anything" when she is doing the girls hair...

Anyhow, excited to finally tile!

You're installing that inside your shower?

No of course not. By the entrance to the bathroom.

What do you think about this:

I would not tile around something like that, Dan. I'd tile the wall and install the fixture on the tile surface.

I believe USG (what usta be USG) indicated either side of the Durock panels was suitable for a ceramic tile installation.

My opinion; worth price charged.
