Set shower pan in mason mix/cement
Cement board walls and ceiling
Tape/mortar seams
Multiple layers RedGuard
Install grey subway tile in vertical pattern
Custom cut niche during tile install to set niche inline with grout lines
Mosaic inset
Also the ceiling has tile
Grout and seal

Backsplash
Install backsplash - 18 ln feet on buffet area
Install backsplash - 10 ln fet in bar area
Cut around extra outlets 4 outlets buffet area - 3 outlets bar area

Yes, it would appear so

Just using this one as more of a gauge on if its worth it to get into the business officially or not.

That kind of price guessing is very, very locale and company specific, Mike. We don't have any idea where you are nor how you plan to structure your business. In generally, we recommend you determine just how much you need to gross per day of work to make a profit, then determine how many days you'll need to spend on the job and do the math.

Can be dramatically different for different areas and contractors.

[Edit] If you'll put that geographic location into your User Profile it'll appear permanently to help folks with their responses.

I would be double that on the backsplash and a third higher on the bathroom roughly speaking. That would make it a wage job, not a big money maker. If I was busy double or better on both.
