Well, it took longer than I wanted, we have several setbacks and an badly timed bout of the flu messed us up, but I am finally finished.
The final cost was $12k including every screw, nail and spot of paint.
We did go overboard on a few things, heck, we spent $750 on lighting alone but the results speak for themselves.
The shower was a huge job. In case you are eager to install 12X24 tiles like these, all I can say is; Have fun. They are without a doubt the most difficult tiles I have ever installed.
The flooring is amazing, well worth the extra few bucks it costs.
All in all, compared to the $32K I was quoted by a Contractor, I feel good about DIY for $20K less !
I really need a beer now.
