In response to Re: RE: Shower framing
Tiling a shower to cover both walls and ceiling is extremely tricky -- the wall/ceiling junction is where a 1/16" imperfection in framing or tile-setting will come back to haunt, punish, and torture you.

Life is far easier if you stop the wall tile about a foot shy of the ceiling, then paint the ceiling and top foot or two of wall. Use cement backer board (Durock) behind the tile and water-resistant drywall for painted areas. U.S. Gypsum has an excellent online manual describing how to tape and finish the Durock and the Durock/drywall seams.

If you're determined to tile your ceiling, I'd call in a professional tilesetter.
