Densarmor is sold at Menards and Lowes...as far as I know, Homey Depot doesn't care it. Like I said, it is the exact same procedure as installing drywall. I use it exclusively in any bathroom remodel I do. Taking it 1 step further, I also use fiberglass tape for the seams as using paper tape is kind of silly if you take the effort of not using paper on the drywall.
I use GP's drywall mud made for Densarmor too. Regular drywall mud has some organics in it that are mold food.

Yes, so do I. It's called Densarmor Cote. I can only find it locally at Lowes.
