I like watching these hgtv and diy bathroom shows for ideas. I can't help but to notice that almost always they tile the floor first after demo or after drywalling. I've always known it as

- demo
- Framing
- roughing
- backer board
- drywall
- finish backer
- finish drywall
- tile walls
- tile floor
- paint
- trim and doors
- fixtures and furniture

I hadn't noticed that. I have noticed the procedure they sometimes teach for tiling walk-in showers. They put a rubber membrane down under the floor tile and bring it about six inches up the wall. Everything above that 6" just has cement board, thinset and tile. No waterproofing on the walls.
