How did you waterproof the backerboard? There's definately a few ways to skin that cat.
Congrats on the new bathroom and the new kiddo!
Thanks! We used fiberrock aquatough (neat stuff) on the walls, and a good quality thinset to fill the seams. Then more thinset to lay the tile. The floor was a plywood layer on top of the subfloor, then thinset, then cement wonderboard, then thinset in the seams, then thinset and then the porcelain tile and a polymer grout in the 1/8" grout lines all around.
It was our first time tiling ever, and we're really pleased with the results... although there was quite the learning curve.
The window was difficult, because we previously had a wood frame there, and it was all water damaged, so we put tile in instead on a slope so the water wouldn't sit, it was much more difficult than we anticipated. Next to that the other difficult spot was the heat register, it ended up falling right in the middle of a tile. They're 13" tiles, and the register is 11" wide, right in the middle of a tile, it took me 5 tiles to get the cut out without snaping the tile. Best tool for cutting the holes I found was an angle grinder with a diamond blade.
We still have to install the bathroom fan, but that's going to wait until we do the roof next year, and then we'll cut out the hole for venting it.
Sorry I rambled on. have a good one.
