I am reading all your comments and followingall the informative leads. It has been incredibky useful and I thank you so much. I am unable to reply individually, as my time is so compressed. Please accept my sincere Thank yous. I am off to watch the tiling videos and I am wishing I could have place under tile heating...

I'm glad it's been helpful. No worries on the lack of time for individual responses. Hopefully everything will turn out well. If you find time, I would love to see updates on the progress.

If you have the image on your computer you can click Manage Attachments and it will let you upload it or if you have it online with the .jpg, .gif, or .png suffix, you should be able to click the option to post from link as an attachment.

Final layout, ready to install, had to exchange tile that were from different batches and uneven on size and thickness. Now I am ready to install and found out last minute (after my mortar was mixed) that the tile cutter I bought is too short to cut diagonals on my 12x12 tiles. Thin setis covered in plastic tightly, I will to go HD tomorrow to get a proper sized cutter....oh the adventires haha!

move it a little so the intersection of the for tile is dead center of the toilet flange. Makes for easier cutting of the flange cuts.

do I cut straight with room interior and add a marble sill or do I tile right to half way and add a T joint to transition to flooring on other side (laminate)

It is a powder room mot a full bath...

There is no wrong. dealers choice. But laminate needs room to expand and contract. I prefer the T joint with the vinyl cover.

ok also another question. I have precut and laid out my little room. everything fits perfectly, but....when I remove and reistall I am afraid it will not fit the same again at the very entrance edge... should I tile the exit first to make sure it is straight and then tile inwards ? darn I am anxious haahaha
