I'd want the vanity installed before tiling.

The window and ceiling are fixed. There really isn't any adjustment on them. The vanity can be adjusted a slight amount. Maybe 1/2 inch?

Yes, it did heat up but took a lot of time and that was the exact project. One correction is that two pegs is 2.5-inch spacing and not 2-inch.
