Mind the gap - how to fill this giant space?

Greetings... I have this 3/4" gap between the end of the tub and the wall that needs to be filled. The best I can think of is to mortar a piece of 1/2" backerboard into it (against the wallboard there now) and finish it off with some tile, continuing the line like there is above it. I no longer have any tile cutting tools, so I was thinking a plain while pencil tile unless thin bullnose tiles exist. I do still have nippers.

Hope to get affirmation that my idea won't look too bad, or other ideas that might fly...

thanks!

jim

Wow, Jim...that’s ginormous!

Just thinking out loud...what about grabbing a piece of 3/4” x 2” x 15” Azek (or similar white-colored, non-rotting exterior trim board) and caulking it into place?

The Azek is a great idea and I hadn't thought about that, but - the gap is a hair smaller than 3/4". It looks like they make stuff in 5/8" by TWELVE FEET :-| Maybe I can find a cut-off at big orange.

Thanks!

2” wide material can be safely ripped from a thicker 3/4” material if needed.

And you might look for a scrap cut-off at a lumberyard as an alternative to the orange store.
