That's what we were going to do. A linen cabinet. I guess I'm just too far discouraged by the way things are looking that I'm putting the issues under the microscope.

Question: How would I even fasten the CBU to this stud?

Don't take offense, I'm just a born wise guy.

OK, so that's the wet wall on the right. Just trim the wallboard so it ends on the center of the stud.

Even if i were able to do that, I'd still have mastic on the old drywall making the mating surface uneven.

Not to mention it would be very difficult to tape the seam between the new and old drywall/CBU.

Well, what's the answer then, do nothing? You'll need to scrape and or sand the area?

....And that's why you normally have to remove an extra row of tiles to be able to prep the area. You learned that on the floor you just tried to do.

yea but think about it, even if i remove another row of the old tile to have more room to prep the old drywall for mating with the new CBU, id still have to sand/scrape the mastic off the okd drywall right flush up until the old tile begins.... Gosh

It seams like like u find a lose thread in ur shirt and u pull it to remove it and eventually u pull the whole shirt apart...

Well, of course, and in this case you shouldn't have to do that. (remove another row to gain room to tape). That's what we were talking about, the tape, it's pretty obvious you need to remove the old mastic. Keep the yellow pages near.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


Two questions:

1. How do I cut the drywall leaving half of it on the stud if I can't get my drywall knife in there because the wood is behind it? I tried scoring it with my sharp utility knife but it's really difficult to make it all the wall through to the wood.

2. What would be the easiest way to sand or remove the mastic of the old drywall?

I'm also worried that half a stud wont be much room for error when Im going to need to screw the CBU screws into the wood (same in terms of relocating the old drywall screws on the half stud)

I recall several years ago someone started a thread to help rip out and re-build a shower. After receiving some advice, he asked if someone could tell him what a "trowel" was. I mean really? Get the checkbook.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


Jaz, might I remind you that it was you that told me that you've helped people with few skills accomplish projects and urged me to continue asking questions. And now that I've taken to doing just that you seem to be scorning at the fact that I'm asking stupid ones.

I think my questions are a bit more complex than asking what a trowel is. I'm presenting you a problem I'm facing and detailing you the issue as best as I can.

You're under no obligation to continue helping me if you feel that way. This is a forum, not a dialogue.

How about you score it a second time, and then a third?

Try sandpaper and/or a scraper.

How do you think drywall and CBU are joined in the first place? You've got " to play with so you start the fastener near the edge and drive it with a slight angle towards the center. Or, you can simply fasten a sister or blocks to the stud and leave the panel as is.
