Still confused, sorry

Ok, I searched and found the threads describing how to deal with cbu joining drywall, but I am still confused. Outside of the wet area, should the tile go over the edge where the two meet and be partly on the drywall (under mesh and mortar of course) or is it better to stop short and not overlap? I sincerely apologize, just want to get this right!

Tom

Tom,

Once you get out of the shower area, you can terminate your CBU into your sheetrock, and tape/mud just like a normal sheetrock joint. Running your tile just past this edge onto the sheetrock is a fine idea, as it cuts down the attention detail required for the finish work.

Hope this helps!

Just to be clear, I can tile over a mud joint?

As long as it is a dry location, yes.

I usually try to only use setting type drywall mud for areas I will tile over too. But if it is bigger tile, and only part of it is on the drywall, it doesn't really matter.

Yes. Treat CBU to drywall joint the same way as any drywall to drywall joint.

If your studs are spaced such that the CBU has to extend beyond the tiled area, finish the joint as a drywall joint, then skimcoat the exposed CBU with joint compound so the surface texture matches the drywall side.
