Smile Kerdi in custom Niche

Hi Folks,

New to the board. I'm redoing a tub surround with Kerdi. I would like to add some custom niches in the walls (rectangles for soap, shampoo, etc.) I plan to frame the niche, rock it and then apply Kerdi while waterproofing the whole surround per John's Kerdi book. Any advise on how to lay out the Kerdi inside the niche? I'm not sure how to apply the Kerdi to the side walls of the the niche.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks! My daughter looked at the photo and said dad it's an unfolded box, duh... I'm assume that adding the inside and outside corner wraps finishes the prep?

Also, what is the average thickness of a finished section of Kerdi add to the total wall thickness. It's only a few mils thick, but with morter, I added a 1/4" inch to my plumbing rough-in depths...

1/2" drywall, 1/4" Kerdi, 3/8" wall tile (1 -1/8 " all in.) Does this sound right.

Thanks Again
