Tile in shower

I am tileing my shower in my bathroom I had to start form scratch I put up all new 1/2" drywall the green stuff and then 1/4" Hardibacker over that. When I was screwing the backer board up I noticed that there was a stud missing at 16" on the to short walls. The area to be tiled is 3, wide there are studs at both ends but only one at 16" then its 20" to the next one. I was wondering if this will be a problem when I put the tile up I don't want it to sag and crack? If it is a problem I will have to unscrew the backer board and then unscrew the drywall and install the missing studs.

Cool 1/2 inch

Shannon - I'm in the middle of the same project. Too bad you already bought 2 products: the drywall and hardibacker board. My suggestion would have been to install 1/2 inch hardibacker board instead of the other two. Good luck - Jen

With your combination of drywall and backerboard, the wall should be plenty solid for tile even with the 20 inch spacing.
