Another place you can use that stuff is on a tub surround. I use a similar product that's just foil with a black sticky side to bridge from the tub lip to the wall. Then I lap my felt paper over it several inches above the lip before I put up my lath.

I like the way that stretches. Once your mud is over it, it's not going anywhere.

I experimented with it to see how far I could stretch it. I cut a piece at 12Ē and got it to go 26Ē around my niche! Just for the record I continue through the whole niche with protecto wrap not just the bottom. Protecto being the more economical for the straight runs.

I do see some slight pull away CX when I maxed it out, lesson learned.

Still pretending to be a mud man 😆
Nothing exciting, just a tub.

One coat this afternoon. Hydroban board Niche, going to do two coats of Hydroban quick cure in the morning and will be tiling an hour later.

Will be my first try with the new Multimax light thinset as well. Looking forward to it, supposed to be very creamy 👍

Looks clean, how do you handle the transition to the foam board?
255 Multimax is awesome, non-sag and super creamy. You wonít need spacers either.

I like to mud in my niches. The felt and lath are folded inside and this makes the niches solid and really no place to move. All corners are grouted.

I place a short board across with legs to support the mud for a while.

I just mud right over the edge of my niche.
And then coat the transition with Hydroban (quick cure this time)

Works ok.
I make my box a little big too and pack it out with mud. Measured tight once and screwed myself. Better to leave some room for error

I doubt Iíd buy board and sealant to build a niche. But I use foam lots too so I have it around already anyway

Iím done the job now pretty well. Just waiting for my rapid thinset to go off on the tub legs and then I can use some Permacolor select and Latasil and out 👍

Not bad. Was studs Saturday morning

Ah now I see the mud is over the foam along the edges. Clean looking tile job, youíre moving along quick. I learned that the hard way too, always make them bigger and fill it in when the tiles going in. You use latisil or grout in the niche corners?

Davy, for the top jamb you use the board to do the outside edge first then let it firm up to ride your edge for the inside?

I used stiffer mud for the last niche I did, tried a jig like Justin showed a while back but was fighting it to much. So I set sticks on the back of the niche then floated all of the jambs heavy and let it firm up a while then I took a straight egde and leveled each edge and cut the excess square with the trowel.

I used grout in the changes of plane here (I know... I know&#128518

The holes were backed with plywood ant then screwed some Hydroban board in there. Mesh taped them and then used some bonded fat mud to flatten it out.

Iím really not sure why the holes were there. I think there was a plumbing leak at one time and my dad fixed it or found it through there. Donno for sure..

No flak from me, grouted corners look much nicer.

Chris, the stick on the right (that's shimmed out with felt paper) is 1/2 inch thick. I also have a screed stick set in mud on the left side of the wall out of the picture. Those horizontal boards in the niches are in line with those screeds so when I pull my straight edge up the wall, it won't hang up on those short boards. After my mud firms up, I'll hold a 1x6 against my mudded wall and fill in the sides, top and bottom of the niches.

Thanks Davy, niches are becoming less of a hassle as I get more under my belt. Iím thinking Justinís method of a screed works wonders I just havenít gotten the motion down smooth enough.

Todayís mud.

Scratch and brown in the shower. One coat in the dry area.
Used 1x2 on the studs to set drywall flush to the stud face.

This way I could do a one coat and flush out to the drywall. Worked great! Quick too.
