Yes! Unfortunately, that’s a very common translation.

Next steps

I was able to get an answer from the contractor that after the niche was framed in the Schluter waterproofing membrane was installed so no Prova board over the 2x4 framing. I know everyone has given great responses. So I am thinking that the only remedy is taking the tile off now and framing it with Prova? Then Schluter?

So you're saying the kerdi was applied directly to dimensional lumber? That's terrific. Aye aye aye!

And just a caulk joint between kerdi and the Prova board? Was it kerdifix?
I don't see how you can fix it properly without removing all the tiles surrounding the niche.
