We had some trouble with getting the box to feel completely secure based on several factors and we ended up attaching it directly to the brick as well as the stud to give it additional rigidity. This worked very well. All in all a total success.
We have one more strip of backer board to install and then we will be jumping into thinset, grout and tiles! We are so excited to see it finished!
