J187, I'd do it. If you do a good job at the drywall, paint, and the tile... it will look like it was always there. Granted, it's a LOT of work for a small nuance, but I feel your pain, that small area that won't accomodate the tiles would bug me too.

You could shim out each stud on the wall extending from the door to where it terminates near the tub. 0 nearest the door growing to 1.5 at the corner nearest the tub.

Thanks guys. I've drywalled it and it looks perfectly fine to me. Actually I would even dare to say it adds a bit of charactor...I'm not even sure it will ever be seen anyway now that I realize the door opens into it and will likely block view of it as you enter the bathroom and once the door is closed you are passed it and into the bathroom.

If you extend the wall and start with a full tile at the back edge of the wall, you still have the problem that the spacing of the tiles will leave a 3/4" gap between the front edge of the tub and the vertical edge of the next tile. Since the outer edge of the tub will likely slope inward, it will be wider at the top and narrower at the bottom.

If you extend the wall and then start tiling from the outside toward the back of the tub, you will end up with a narrow tile at the back edge. You will also need to cut the lower tiles on the front edge of the tub due to the slope of the tub.

I just faced this with my bath remodel project. I started tiling from the back wall and cut tiles of the required width (about 3/4" at bottom and 1"+ at top) to fit along the front edge of the tub. In my case the wall extended further out and I did add another column of tiles but it would not have been necessary. Your cut tiles are not going to be completely flush with the tub since you can cut them that accurately and smoothly. This will not show once you caulk around the edge of the tub.
