Good tile guy or gal in the Philadelphia area

I've enjoyed reading this forum for a couple of years and I've learned a ton of stuff and even received great advice on a tiling project I did. So I know that the pros who post here really know their s&#* and care about quality work.

We're smack in the middle of building a new house which we are doing with a construction manager, but are also ending up doing a lot of the day to day management ourselves. I'm looking to find a really good tile contractor. I know there are tons of tile layers and I know that our CM can find one, but I also know that if I find someone through this board, they'll do good work.

We are just outside of Philly in the western 'burbs. Rough framing is nearly done, so we'll be looking at finish work sometime late Februuary - or at least that is the hope. We're easy-going, flexible, reasonable people who don't change our minds every five minutes, can afford to pay fairly, and respect the work that contractors do. We've got two bathrooms to do - each is partial tiled, and the master shower is a barrier free deal with a mortar bed slope (1/2:12) down to a trench drain. In addition, there are three 24"x72" glass block windows in the house that need doing.

I wanted to do some of this work myself, but frankly time is running short and I don't think there is any chance I'll be able to. If you know someone who's looking for, or you're looking for, a smallish but kind of nice job to fill in, PM me and I can send you the drawings and tile specs.

Michelle I moved your thread over here where the pros hang out. It will likely get a better response here.
