I applied stucco (3-coat) to my oven directly to the cement board. I used woven fiberglass mesh in the brown coat. I used a concrete bonding adhesive on the cement board prior to the scratch coat. Same process used on my CMU walls for the base and island areas. Not a crack to speak of, hairline or otherwise.

Generally, you trowel the mesh in as you apply the base coat of stucco.

Thanks Tscar. So apply the mesh tape, add the lathe, then the base coat of stucco? I was thinking i needed to mud the tape in similar to dry wall.

No, I am sorry I am confusing you and myself. For applying cementious stucco directly to hardibacker, embed the mesh in thinset on all joints, then apply one or two coats of stucco.

In addition to taping joints - I used a role of fiber mesh lath all the way around my enclosure. As part of the scratch. For what it's worth.
