I am still torn on whether or not to hire out the job. I think I could handle the project, waterproofing is my largest concern.

The house we are building is designed to look like an 1890-1910 home, so I want to have a historic look to everything (as much as possible). Wide plank heart pine floors (8 and 10"), reclaimed 2 panel doors with glass knobs, tin ceiling in kitchen, etc.. So I am thinking that white (slightly off-white) 3x6 subway tiles on the wall and 1-2" square or 2-3" octagon on the floor of the shower.

I may hire out the waterproofing and do the tiling myself, but everything I have read says that it is fairly straight forward to waterproof if you can follow directions.

Since I have done a lot of the work myself on the house, this is another place I can say "I did that too". Is everything that I have done perfect compared to a pro? Probably not, but I did it myself and feel great about it, no issues and I can just call it character .
