Time and labor for my tiny tile job?
We are adding a teeny powder room to our first floor: about 25" x 60". We will have a wall hung small sink, toilet, and A/C vent as the only things to work around on the floor - there are no zig-zags in the wall - it is just a simple rectangle with plaster walls and we will have a simple wood baseboard. We plan to use Daltile 1" white hex. that are adhered to a mesh backing. We are going for simple and hoping that will mean less expensive too.
Our contractor estimated it would take a full 8 hour day for the tile job and maybe some of the following day too. I know nothing about tiling but this sounded like a lot of time to me. Does anybody have an idea of what a realistic time frame is for this kind of tile laying, and maybe even a general idea of price too?
I know, I know, people will tell me it is easy and we should do it ourselves but we are just not DIYers. My husband already works close to 80 hours a week and doing this when he comes home is just not how we want to spend our time. And I don't want to take this on myself. I know nothing about home repair and we'd rather pay someone to do it... I'm just ignorant as to what it would involved.
