Thanks for the advice Wayne,
If I understand your concept correctly, I would still not be covering the horizontal seam between the top of the curb and the vertical wall without the outside corner piece also. What if I extended the legs of the inside corner and changed the direction of the slit horizontally so that the vertical leg of the inside corner against the curb could wrap across the top of the curb AND then run up the wall to take care of the curb-wall connection. In that case would I only need the single piece, no outside corner?

I don't follow your suggestion. But I can say that there is no way to properly cover an outside corner (sum of angles around the corner exceeds 360 degrees) using regular flat fabric (sum of angles around any point is 360 degrees) without using more than one overlapping piece at the outside corner. That follows mathematically from counting angles.

Cheers, Wayne

OK, I initially thought you were suggesting that the modified inside corner you described could be used as the ONLY curb corner, but you meant to use it along with my outside corner correct?

Right, if your curb were really tall, you'd need 3 pieces: 1 at the inside corner and 2 at the outside corner. Since the two corners are close to each other, you can extend the inside corner piece to also function as one of the two pieces at the outside corner.

Cheers, Wayne

OK to beat a dead horse: I made a little change from the plan. With the curb wrapped I assume the following will get me proper coverage and 2" overlap with just one inside and one outside corner. Good? (Once again sorry for the rotation) Just want to ensure not to blow the whole project, thanks.

Looks good from here.

If you're using any Kerdifix, I'm probably in the "smear some Kerdifix in the vortices" camp, but I'm willing to believe it's not required.

Cheers, Wayne
