The easiest way to repair this


I know what the consensus is going to say....rip it all out and start fresh, well that isnt going to happen, no funds right now....i just need to patch it up. I have worked with drywall in the past, just not in this type of scenario. I still have all of the original tiles as well.

looks like you got yourself a mess. with no funds i would say put some plastic on it to seal it up and rip it apart when you can afford it and fix it properly.

That is really bad, needed replacing years ago, it was done wrong in the first place. That's mold there, not real healthy. How much do you think it'll cost if you can do it yourself?

To buy some time; remove the rest of the tiles shown in the pics and the mush it's stuck to, well, the bottom 3 rows at least. If you've got mold on the back wall remove a couple of row there too. Replace with 1/2" cement board then install tiles with thin set mortar. It comes only in powder form in a bag. Hope for the best. Get some Concorbium to spray to mold. http://www.concrobium.com/

The reason it's failing and molding up is because someone used sheetrock not tile board and no one kept up with resealing the grout.

A full sheet of what you need is not going to cost you that much more than a repair chunk. You should bite the bullet and fix this. That mold poses a costly health hazzard.

Not ignoring your post and understand funds are limited. This is really not a repairable situation though since it was done wrong in the first place.
