I live in Northern Va and can tell you I would pay the equivalent of 40-50/hr, all day, for any competent contractor to do work.

If it were mine, and in consideration of the floating shelves, I'd have to make the stone level and deal with the taper at the ceiling. Then, after the bed is moved against it, decide if you need to...

Aside from leaving something unfinished I would also be thinking, probably constantly, about air movement in and out of those gaps. Maybe bugs. Maybe critters.

No way I could leave drywall seams and corners and screw heads unfinished , and drywall un-primed, even if hidden. My OCD would have an unmitigated hissy fit.

I wouldn't run the Kerdi to the corner - as in using the corner bead as a guide to slice off the Kerdi with a blade. I'd be concerned that the cut edge of the Kerdi will be visible.

The only thing I'd comment on, Jeff, is that you have 4 corners meeting. From what I've read I believe the backer board manufacturers what the boards off-set so to avoid 4 corners meeting.

In my over analyzing mind I'd be leery of any square edged trims.

As the tires hit that edge I think there will be some force that will try to push the trim forward against the tile edge. Although...

Andy,

If you build yourself a screed you should be able to get it level in one shot.

Grout joint sizes are dictated by how accurate the tile size is from one tile to the next and by desired appearance. Rectified tile can be more accurate but not necessarily.

Chris,

Are you saying there is currently 3 layers of ply installed right now, or there was (prior to your removal)?

If you're down to a single 1/2" layer, and it is delaminating to a...

Butch,

The left and right sides of my garage slab pitch very slightly towards the center, and the whole of it pitches slightly towards the door. Might want to check that. I'd orient the tiles so...
