Nice!

Help me out though; remind me what the stuff to the right is. That’s outside the bathroom footprint?

He simplified the drawing a little, hopefully this is better.

Looks like a excellent plan, nice work. Especially like the way it makes the window a feature instead of I wish this thing wasnt in the way object.

OK he doesn't think we can do a doorless shower without a lot of splash out. Any input for head placement, or tweaks to make that a possibility?
He likes waterproofing the floor, just doesn't want puddling.

Has anyone done a tear out and redo of half to 3/4 before doing the same on the rest? We want to leave the toilet functional while working on most or all of the walls and a decent portion of the floor.

Id put it on the 3-4 side but not a huge difference.

I'd put it as close to the corner of those two walls as possible, with the controls on the 1'8" wall.

You'll get splash-out, you'll just hafta decide if you find it to be excessive when you put the shower in use. I'd recommend you plan your framing such that adding a door if desired is an easy option.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Ya CX he said the same thing on the door.

Question on shower floors, how much traction do you get from 1/8 grout lines on 6 " tile if the tile didn't start out to have the best for shower floors?

Six inch tiles are still plenty big to make a rather slippery when wet floor to my thinking, Carie, which is why we recommend mosaic tiles for that application. A mosaic tile is one with a facial area of less than 9 square inches, meaning you gotta stay under 3x3 inches. That also makes tiling the properly sloped floor easier to do without excessive lippage. 2x2-inch tiles have always been my favorite for shower floors.

But that decision is entirely up to you.

Another hint: I think you'll find that a curb at the entry will help reduce the splash-out you can expect and might be a good idea unless you have your heart set on a curbless entry.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I am hoping to stay under 2 inches for the curb. On the tile I am trying to stay with what will be easiest to grout and more importantly keep clean. The only room that is cleaned on a reg basis is the kitchen.
We have very hard water in this area and no water softener.

Anyone have experience working with Spectralock and Starlike? What are the differences between them? Working time? Clean up?

I've used spectralock, never heard of the other stuff. Spectralock is pretty straightforward if you follow the instructions and apply only what you can clean/tool per 15 minute period. Best bet is to buy a bunch of mini kits so you can work one area at a time before the product cures. If you're handy with a kitchen scale, but a full kit or two and divide it up into manageable amounts and save a few dollars.

I’d go with Fusion Pro over Spectral lock; better price, performance and color stability than SL.
