Building a Concrete Step

I'm about to begin tiling a room (with a concrete slab) at a lower grade to the kitchen and have been asked by the wife to install a tile step. Existing side of the concrete pour for the step is sheetrock. Is my best option to cut out the drywall and replace with cement board prior to pouring the concrete step?

Hi Larry, if you are afraid of the moisture ruining the sheetrock, you can cover the sheetrock with tar paper or poly or even a paint on membrane. The paper or plastic can be cut after the cement sets.
