Bathroom Remodel Help
So, I am finally starting to reconstruct everything that I have destroyed over the last few months and I need your help.
I have put the new tub in its place and I am not sure what to do about the gap. I have it flush with the studs on the back (long) side, and the right side where the drain is. There is one twisted stud that I will have to shave down and put a straight one beside it, but other than that, two of the three sides are looking good.
As you can see in the attached image(s), there is roughly a 1" gap on the left side of the tub. Now, I am not sure how to word the rest of this post so please forgive me.
I plan on waterproofing this alcove with Kerdi, and need your help with hanging the drywall.
Should I use furring strips to fill the 1" gap on the left side, and then use 1/4" furring strips on top of that for the drywall? If I do that method, should I then continue to fur all of the studs on that wall with 1.25" furring strip to make the wall flat? Since the right (drain) side is already flush, should I also continue to fur that whole wall with 1/4" furring strips in order to make everything flat?
Does that make sense? it does in my head?
I'm worried about the butt joints and recessed joints when I hang the drywall? what kind of layout should I use? Should I use a solid sheet of drywall to do the whole wall including the alcove? Should I try to avoid recessed joints around the tub?
