Truss uplift in tile to ceiling shower - would you be okay with t

I posted previously in the bathrooms forum but it wasn't until after I got a few responses did we learn that the truss uplift was the cause of the crack in our new bathroom (part of an addition). Unfortunately I haven't rec'd any feedback since my update and our contractor wants us to tell us what we want him to do (since we aren't happy w/ the current "fix" he did).

Please see the forum and pictures here -

I am not a fan of the way his solution turned out. Is there molding that we could have our contractor replace this with that would be seamless as opposed to different (where the tile to ceiling is)? It obviously needs to be attached to the ceiling. Right now the molding is attached to the ceiling all the way around the room and the wood strip is attached to the wall only where there isn't any tile around the ceiling.

Would you be happy with this fix / the way it looks if it was your new bathroom?

Please help!
