Getting there 70% done, believe it or not
Well I can't say its easy or fast setting and cutting all those thin little tiles. Having done many tile showers and baths with standard tiles, my guess would be that this job involves about 3-4 times the normal amount of labor. You can only stand to work about 4 hours on a section of tiles. Too little mortar and the tiles do not stick well, too much mortar and you need to scrape out miles grout lines before the mortar becomes hard. Mostly you will spend a lot of time scraping out miles of grout lines, as I would assume you would want your tiles to stick really well ? Cutting the tiles is also lots of fun, many times you get smaller chips along the edges , unless your have more special tile cutting equipment.
