I'm tackling a full bathroom drywall install for the first time and trying to make sure I don't make any unfixable mistakes. I am at the taping/mudding stage.
Based on my understanding, I can use paper tape and joint compound to do Seam 1, and I can use alkali-resistant fibatape and thinset mortar to do Seam 4.
The plan is to tile above the shower head, but not all the way to the ceiling (the upper most foot of hardiebacker and the ceiling we will paint).
- For Seam 3 I plan on attaching a corner bead - do I then use thinset mortar on both the hardiebacker and drywall sides of the bead?
- What about Seam 2? My guess is alkali-resistant fibatape and thinset mortar are what I need, but am I going to run into trouble trying to do that in a corner?
- Does caulk or anything else need to go anywhere in these seams?
Thank you very much.
