I'm going to trim the top and bottom of the tin with darker stained 2x4's.

I think the avocado is a close match to what we did.

I did get a new toilet for Christamas...sorta. Got several Lowe's gift cards and added them all up and bought a new toilet.
Got everything installed and it went easy, except I need a new supply line, since the old one was too short to re-use

Technically, I suppose you are correct. It isn't "illegal" in the sense that it's a crime to use it and you'll be arrested if you do. However, it is not code compliant here, and you will not pass inspection if it is used.

Are you telling me you can't use it on your bathroom walls? Because I find that very hard to believe. Cannot use it behind tile in your shower - yes, that is not code compliant. However there's no reason it can't be used in walls anywhere in your house that is not a "wet area". I'm not sure what you mean by "damp area", but if green board can't be used in your bathroom, that's basically like saying drywall can't be used in your bathroom.

If you are saying otherwise, I'd be interested in seeing the documentation for that.

Green board: A type of gypsum board that has a greater resistance to moisture than regular (white) gypsum board and is used in bathrooms and other wet areas.

Next

GreenBoard is drywall with a water repellant covering on one side. it is used in bathrooms, and around kitchen sinks.

By certain codes, you use this green board in damp wet areas, like around a sink or bath/shower. It is dyed green so you know the water repellant has been added.

However, where bathroom tile is used in a shower stall, cement board is to be used. Cement baord is water proof, to a certain extent. In a bath and/or shower, the cement board is used to eliminate water ingress into the wall, therby preventing mold and mildew. The really good contractors also use a water proof membrane along with the cement board.

Not sure where I went wrong in saying green board is good to use in the OPs renovation?? It's not in a shower it's just his walls in the bathroom.

There should never be water or moisture getting to any drywall but let's face it... It can happen.

Caulk your trim after you install it and even your corners.... Seal it all up nice and tight.

Looks great by the way!!! You're doing a good job!!!

Hate to say it but I have to.

You should pull off the tin and install the base first with the tin coming down on top of the base.

You could also use a clear silicone to fill the spaces between the metal and the base - will be difficult to get a nice clean looking job though. It could be taped off, with the tape on top of the base, and another piece following the curve of the metal - I supposed that's how I'd do it.

Another option would be filling it with something solid (think Bondo style) and then painting it.

Ideally, you are correct. However, I am doing it in this manner because there is about a 2" wide "ditch" around the floor where we pulled out the old tile that went below the floor level. The ~1/2" depth of the tin and the 1.5" from the 2x4 BARELY have enough to cover the edge. I wish it wasn't like this, but it's what I'm dealing with. I haven't decided what I'm going to use to fill in the gaps just yet. I thought about spray foam with caulk on top of it.

I would have used a 4x4 and then back cut it for depth and then run the corrugated onto the top of it. It's a short run so it wouldn't be expensive.
