The tile is finally started to be installed after all the preparation of water barriers. The big stuff goes first, we see here the easiest parts - the large tiles that do not need cutting. There are still tiles cut to meet the wall, since a wall is never exactly the size of your tiles.
The back wall of the shower stall is tiled up to eye level, where the deco tile will be installed. The tile over the plumbing is now installed from the floor up to the point where special cutting will be needed to accommodate the plumbing rough.
