Shower Design and tile locations

I'm building a shower(30-32" x 60.5") on a slab and am using a Kerdi pan and kerdiboard and a frameless glass door. I am planning i build the curb out of 2.5 inch wide bricks and size them to be 2.25" above the drain. I have 47 inches from the wall to the center of the toilet. I was planning on placing the center of the curb at 15" from the center of the toilet.

Is this curb wide enough? What is the minimum I can do?
Do I need to move the curb so that the outside edge is at 15" from the center of the toilet? I'm hesitant to make the shower rough framing smaller than 32" x 60.5"

Where do I switch from Kerdi to drywall, at the outside-edge/middle/after the curb?

Do I tile up to the drywall or cover the transition with tile?

How far beyond the edge of the curb should I extend tile at a minimum?

Thank you in advance for the assistance.

Welcome back, Spencer,

The curb needs only to be wide enough to accommodate whatever enclosure you are considering. You only need to maintain 15" left and right of the toilet center line to any partition. It wouldn't bother me if the curb encroached on that 15" a little, and I doubt it would bother any code compliance inspector.

I would want the change from Kerdi to drywall to happen at least 3" from the face of the curb, that way you can tie in the Kerdi to the face of the curb for water proofing.

I would also choose to run the tile past the Kerdi to drywall seam enough that it will cover the Kerdi band you'll use to cover the Kerdi board to drywall seam.
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.
