Too many dots if you ask me lol. The job/pics are according to the prints. 4x4 dots(the bigger of the 2 dots) are tumbled/ungauged slate. I cut those after the field was installed(traced em on the floor) as the sizing on them were/are very bad.

The 3x3 dots I cut,prior to installing the field/floor. Those I could production cut,as the 3x3 dots I was cutting from a greenish(silver seas) granite. I just ripped a true square tile diagonally in half(as I'm sure many of the pros do)and used that as my gauge.

The dots in the shower,were speced as "random" with 5-6 silver seas 3x3 granite dots. It shows/describes nothing above the listello....and I suggested that some random dots should go above the listello,to keep with the theme in the shower. I was told to stick to the prints

Anyways.....I was hoping a few of the knowledgable bidders,could give me an idea of a price for said bathroom. Just install/labor prices. Only durarock labor was on tubdeck,and 4x4 post at corner of tub. 19x19 porcelain tiles laid over durarock walls,and slab on outfloor. Build and set blockseat. Float and set shower pan,4x4 ungauged slate. Cut/fab/set granite shampoo shelf. Seal shower pan slate,and seal approximately 18 4x4 slate dots.
Cut and install 18 4x4 slate dots,28-30 3x3 granite dots.
Seal slate band in listello.

Thx to any and all for helpful info/prices.
Btw,I'm getting 10 bucks a dot,is that within the ballpark?

P.S. ... I generally try not to dry cut anything,esp if it's been set as,you're running a risk of the piece breaking/chipping.....and then you've turned a simple job into a patch job. I lucked out on this job. As I mentioned,as the slate was/is so badly sized,I saw no other viable option other than to trace each 1,so the joint size was consistant. Look closely at the shower pan,the sizing is terrible

I just had to do the same thing last week in a kitchen and two baths. I never want to see another dot for a long long time. The bad side this customer was the devil. One dot got positioned with 25% of it under the toilet and my god if she had gun I would of been shot. But the dots where in perfect center proportion to the room, I myself wouldn't of done any other way.
How ya doin Rich? Hang in there.
Example how bad this Lady is. The house less than two years old and she has had three roofs already. She claims she seen spots in some of the shingles.
Then sued them for marks on there driveway. Thers a lot more but I'll stop.
Oh I got 50 dollar tip and really wanted to tell her where to put it. Somebody stop me. Gotta go Later.
