closet or tile first ?


Turning for season porch into breakfast eating area. I will install ceramic floor and want to build a 4'x2' closet with bi fold doors for storage area. Should I install the floor first or build the closet first. Right now the floor is rough wood.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks Mike, that's the way I thought it should be done. Someone else said tile first because it would be easier to do.

If you tile first, it will be difficult to fasten your bottom plate without cracking the tile.....
