kerdiboard to sheetrock at outside corner

Any advice on how to join 1/2 inch kerdi board to sheetrock at outside corner? Shower remodeling & currently studs are exposed within shower area. The shower head wall will be tiled right to edge of an outside corner where it turns 90 degrees/perpendicular to become a painted sheetrock wall. The rock is not a wet area, just the rest of the bathroom. The curb will be flush/in line with the face of the finished sheetrock wall. The shower glass (semi-frameless) will be centered on curb (finished 5" wide marble) and therefore approximately 2 to 21/2 inches from the outside corner where it is attached vertically on shower head wall.

I would just install a corner bead, and use a non premixed joint compound, and perhaps thin set on the shower head wall.

Welcome aboard, Sam.

Ditto. A standard corner bead will work.

Question Thanks for the advice!

Of course..one more question. I plan to use Kerdi rondec bullnose at the edge of the tile. Would the metal corner bead interfere, or cause the corner to build out too far? The rondec fits under the edge of the tile about 1/2 inch & does have some dimension to it, maybe 1/16 of an inch. The build out probably wouldn't be obvious since it would only be about 2 to 21/2 inches of tile showing on the outside of the shower frame/glass.

Disclaimer: Just a DIYer winging it here:

As best as I can tell, RONDEC is basically corner bead for tile. It's purpose seems to be to make a clean outside corner without using bullnose tile.

But the RONDEC is designed for tile to be on both sides of the bead. But it 1sounds like you want tile on one side and drywall on the other. That seems to mean that when you install the RONDEC, you will want to install it flush with the drywall and simply fill the gap between the RONDEC and drywall.
