shower outside corner detail
i'm tiling a new shower stall.
the door jambs will be tiled, but the outer wall where a casing would normally be will be drywalled.
i'm trying to figure out a nice way of ending the tile so as to cover the edge of the adjoining drywall and also the edge of the tile.
i'm looking at maybe a 1X1 "pencil" molding, or even a larger chair rail to act as a sort of casing.
it seems that in either case, the ti le would have to cantilever out 1/2" from the durock to be able to cover the edge of the drywall, eh?
or, i could durock the casing, smack on a big chair rail which would cover the drywall and edge of the tile, but again, the tile would have to stick out unsupported 1/2".
another idea is to simply stick in a piece of WOOD quarter round between each element. the tile quarter is flat on the bottom, making this impossible.
tiles will be 3X6 tumbled travertine with no bullnose.
attached is a crude sketch.
