Bathroom wall transition


Renovating a bathroom.

All walls are 3/8" Sheetrock. Tile came past tub about 4-5".

Putting up 1/2" cbu around tub. The wall pictured is making me think...

The tile ended where the drywall is cut out. I would like to end the new tile in the same area. However no stud exists on the edge of the sheetrock that was cut.

Would you install a stud there to allow the Sheetrock and cbu to meet?

Another idea is to go back further with the old rock and put in 3/8 including tub wall since its not a brutally wet wall and 44 years of showers resulted in zero damage.

#1, 3/8" is to thin it should have been 1/2"
#2, 1/2 Tile boards going to leave a step.
I'd be considering redoing that whole wall with 1/2 sheetrock.
Best way to add what's needed to attach the rock to is to add a 2 X 6 laying flat so there's something to attach a curtain rod to and install the rock and tile board.

Didn't redo the whole wall. Instead I put a stud at the transition point and put up the 1/2" cbu which is not really 1/2" more like .42" so it ended up working out. For the "step" I am concealing the ceramic edge with a piece of aluminum profile edging.

Thanks for the feedback!!

I was faced with a similar situation on my latest bath remodel. I installed a stud and like joecaption suggested I used a 2x6 to make sure I had some wood in which to anchor the new show curtain rod.

Shower curtain rod will fall in the same location, there is a target to hit and falls on the center of a tile.

I came up with a similar solution. I had to bump mine out a little further though.
