Re: Screws?


That's how I would do it, less cuts, taping, mudding, smoothing, etc.

The less that I have to do overhead the better, in my opinion.

Re: Screws?


Drywall is the cheapest thing you will ever buy.
2 sheets for each side
2 sheets for the end
2 sheets for the ceiling
Scraps around door.
You were planning on cutting 2 sheets for the ceiling, what's changed.
Are you drywalling around tub?

Okay so I will definitely just cut down the sheets to fit and install them perpendicular to the joists. I'll leave a pic.

I purchased 4 pieces of 5x3 cement board that I'll be screwing onto the studs going around the tub. Then I'm going to apply thin set mortar onto it and then put on the tiles going up to the ceiling.

Before that I'm going to fill in the small gaps with 100% silicone. How does that sound? Is that enough of a water barrier? I've watched videos of people putting RedGard on the cement board.

Re: Screws?


So 2 less sheets.
tile backer is taped with mesh tape and thin set, 2 coats of red guard or similar product. Save the caulk to the end.

So you recommend me getting something like RedGard or something similiar to put onto the cement board before I tile?

Re: Screws?


Yes red guard, or a waterproof membrane liner, or your work is wasted, it'll fall off soon, due to water penetration.

Thank you again for all this information it's truly invaluable. I'll go to Home Depot as soon as I drop my sons off and their babysitter. Tomorrow is pretty much my only day to be able to put a full days work into our bathroom. Everything is gutted and the tub is placed and ready to go.

It gets overwhelming because I question myself on what to do next? I'm pretty sure the order from here should sealing that gap between the tub and the floor with silicone then putting a trim on it, then cutting out the holes in the sheetrock for the recessed lights and getting the ceiling put up, then installing the cement board and coating it with RedGard, then I'll finish sheetrocking the remaining walls, silicone all remaining gaps around the tub, spackle and paint, then lay down the thin set mortar on the floor then tile and install the vanity and toilet bowl???

If you have a caulking gun, I would say you are trigger happy.
Caulking is the last thing you do the day before you use the bath,
So for now quit thinking about that, You get to excited about one thing that is done way later and you are sure to leave some steps out.

Lol I am. We had a leak from the bathtub going into the basement so I just want to make sure it's over protected and it's definitely making me sound trigger happy.

What do you think of the order of doing it? Did that seem right?

It's about the insulation on the wall with vapour barrier before put the tub in, Triple check the tub for level where the bottom of the tile land.

Install the fan in ceiling and vapour barrier that with poly even if you are not using poly anywhere else. The light has to be rated for insulation and all want to be sealed against moisture leaks.
Drywall ceiling first then the upper walls and then the lower walls..
If the tile is planed to stop on the wall just outside the tub. Take the drywall halfway behind that first row for a smooth transition.
Cover the tub with card board and plywood that will take your weight so you don't damage it by dropping tools or tile in it.

Thank you. The lighting is good on all accounts. Sorry for the amateur question but where should I put the poly vapor barrier? On the ceiling fan? And I'm a little lost on the drywall transition part.

Re: Screws?


The transition between drywall and backer is not as smoth as we would like so have last row of tile hide the transition.
