Those are BIG tiles, are you looking for a casual estimate or for a pro??? What size room??? How many impediments(things to cut around), etc??? That sounds like a multi-person job.

So much depends on the skill of the installer--the tools used---distance to the work station.

With one helper I have set as much as 1300 square foot in two days--

other times as little as 100----why are you asking ?

Are you trying to see how long it will take you?

Or are you trying to see what it will cost to hire someone on an hourly basis?

I just calculated the tile size to inches---those are very large tiles almost 24x24 inches--

Add extra time to the instalation as the large tiles take more time to level and cut.

my concern is the speed of this work, not about how much will it cost..
if you can lay 1300sqft. in two days, that means you can lay 325pcs (or less) of 24in.x24in. tile in two days with one helper.?

or, that would also mean you could lay 162 pcs.(or less) of 24in x24in in one day, approximately 8hours, right?

That was a wide open area with only three doors.

Typical production in a day with one helper and plenty of cuts might be closer to 300 to 350 square foot .
