Repair Jagged Bathroom Wall Demolition


We're remodeling our bathroom, but when we did the demolition job around the tub/shower area (removal of bathroom tiles and backer), we also tore off some of the plaster wall and backing adjacent to the tiled area. We've installed the cement board in the area to be tiled, but I was wondering what would be the best way to repair the non-tiled wall area? Is there a simple patching solution?

Pack that area with Easy sand (powdered drywall compound) then use paper tape and tape that in the usual manner.

Thank you for the advice! Is it a problem if the Easy Sand touches the studs? The gaps are quite wide, anywhere from 2 inch to 6 inch wide so I'd probably fill it with lots of compound. Or maybe I should use a tarp or mesh as backing?

Just a thought - a bead of low expanding foam would plug up most of that hole and provide a surface to keep the patch material from falling through.

Add in drywall patches to the wider spots---then pack and tape---(I have used foam spray to fill gaps--but this location is not a good candidate for that method)

I just looked at the pictures again---jschaben--and you might be right---those are some deeper cavities than I remembered--so that foam would be a solution---thank you---Mike---

First thing is, that right section is going to move. Your best thing is to cut back the gypsum to allow a full sheet to meet with the sheet on the left.

Thank you for the advice! We've added the gypsum board in the gaps and filled in the rest.
