We are planning to install a shower stall (stand up) from Home Depot in our bathroom. Should we install the shower BEFORE tiling or after?

Hi Amelia, Welcome!

It really doesn't matter, but if you put the floor tile in first, you'll have to protect it during the course of construction, which includes installing the shower stall and the associated drywall work. In a professionally built new home (a good one) the floor would probably be put in last. That way you wouldn't have to protect if from the plumber. Beware the plumber :-)
