Outside the alcove

I'm at the part in this bathroom reno where I've fixed all the framing and done all the rough, and am wondering what the best practice is for continuing tile, waterproofing, and backerboard past the edge of the tub.

Here's what I'm planning...In the photo, the joint between the new 2x6 on edge and old 2x4 is 32" from the corner. I'm thinking of running Durock to that joint, where drywall will take over. Will thinset and mesh tape that joint and then apply hydroban a couple inches past the joint. This will leave me with alternating courses of a full tile and two half-tiles, each with a 2" bullnose. The bullnose straddles the joint between the hydroban and untreated drywall (I'm painting, but well shy of the tile, and will fill that in later.)

BTW...If you notice the gap between the tub and wall, it has yet to be furred out. In process (see plywood at bottom plate). But wanted to resolve this first.

Am I doing anything wrong?
Thanks, Mark

PS been lurking a long time. This forum gets mad props for being a place where people can disagree without getting ugly. Who knew there was such a place on the internet??

Forgive my density, but you don't appear to have "a couple inches" of wall past that joint. What am I missing?

In a perfect world, joints in drywall and tile backer wouldn't land on framing joints, but if that's unworkable, I'd just make that 2x6 and 2x4 as close to one-ness as possible with fasteners and maybe PL Premium. Mesh tape and bed as you describe should be adequate.


If you're furring the whole wall, why not rip a strip of ply to bridge across the 2x4 and 2x6?

Peter- You mean like this?
That was the plan all along, but I was wanting to get my question asked.
I should just have waited until I had it done.

CX-
The Hydro Ban is brush applied to the cement backer and the drywall, just beyond the joint. Now, I'm afraid I'm the dense one. I posted an updated photo in a different reply...

I think CX was imagining a doorway to the right of tub there. I'm assuming that's a stud bay...correct?

Thanks, Peter. Yes, that's what I thought.
