No, it usually won't. I would find some sort of straight edge (4 ft level will do) to see just how flat the CBU is.

I think I may of confused myself here,lol. I'm not going to put concrete board on the curb anywhere, I was going to float the inside, top and outside. The sheetrock is on the outside face of the 1/2 wall, I'm still not sure if that makes sense. As far as the cbu at the bottom, it flares out about a 1/8" on a 6' level but if I push in with my foot it will lay flat.

The mud won't push in like your foot does. It's best (if not too much trouble) to back out the screws and remove what's holding it out.

I was afraid of that, guess that's tomorrow night's project. This is how it sits now.

CX this is what I was talking about at the curb where the sheetrock would meet the floated mud. The sheetrock is just tacked there for the pic I still need to add another dam as you recommended. How would you finish off the outside of the curb/wall?

That outside corner is still vulnerable where you have the drywall, Steve.

What do you plan to use to cover the shower entry?

I was going to use a solid piece across the curb up the right side and across the top of the 1/2 wall.

If you have blocking between the studs, you can add screws across it at the bottom as long as you keep them at least 2" above the top of the curb (3" is probably better). That will also help stabilize the liner when you pack the mud in.

Jim, that would help allot. My lowest screws are about 14" from the bottom, that's where my liner ran up to, so I didn't put any screws through the liner

If the "buttress panel" I'm guessing will be on the side of the short wall and sealed to the tile and that would protect the area where the drywall will be, that should work fine. Water always gets out where there are shower doors or curtains and the area of the ends of the curb are one of the first points of failure. That's what I wanted to see you prevent.

Some moisture will eventually find its way to that area, though. We'll hope it's not enough to cause damage.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Morning CX, I definitely want to design/build this as best as possible. I'm open to any input on what to use and how to finish off the are in question I if it needs to have cbu and tile on the outside then so be it.

Ok I've finally have one bathroom mostly finished between doing everything else, so I just wanted to check in and show some progress. Now on to the shower in the other bathroom, so I'll be in need of some more help in there
