anyhow... I will still DIY... consider the knowledge you will gain after doing this project... book reading is still a key to success rather than just jump right into it...
Sorry for the piece meal information. I should have mentioned this. The tile exists on the floor only. I would like to tile the walls as well, not including the walls around the tub since the existing tub/shower is a single enclosure. The price I was given included the walls. I think I am going to tackle this myself.

may be it is your area... but to do what you describe and cost $2200 labour alone is a bit overcharge to me... unless you have a 300 sq.ft. luxury bathroom...like message from upstairs... may be to remove old tiles work does cost a lot which I am not aware off, I used to hire contractor to lay floor tiles in my half bathroom for $200 Canadian labour... but that was 4 years ago...

If you are going to do Concrete backer board you could remove the old wall, flooring and have those items in place for a handy man to come in and do the actual layout and tiling. Often a heafty piece of the cost is the tear down and the disposal. Another minor detail might be that the tailpiece may no longer reach to the p-trap, but a trip to the plumbing dept. should fix that. Well i am in the middle of bathroom remodeling too. And I am desperatly looking for more informationr regarding this topic, so If you could post some website that help a lot....please don't post this website remodel-bathrooms.com as I already know about it. thanks in advance

Your tile work looks great. I notice you've left a window in the shower. Is it just tiled and then grouted to the glass? I currently have my bathroom down to studs. Old house and still has the frame of the old double hung window. I want to put glass block in that hole. It runs down to within 6 inches of the tub. I thought if I made it flush with the tiled walls it should hold up as well as the tiles. Sound possible? And if I can just ask another question here (I'll probably post elsewhere too), is it possible to tile the ceiling? I want to use 20" tiles on the walls, but I'm worried about such a heavy tile being overhead and knocking me out some day. Any suggestions?
