I am remodeling my bathroom and will do all the work except the plumbing. I am putting in a renovated claw foot tub and the water supply comes out of the floor. I am also putting in a new
toilet and sink and vanity. My question is should I have the plumber come in before or after I tile. I was thinking that I would rip out the old floor, put in cement board, have the plumber come before I tile. Of course I could just call one and ask, but it's Saturday and I have a Hometalk community that I can ask.

I probably didn't explain my remodel well enough. I only opened a small section of the walls
to re-wire and I'm not moving any plumbing. The bathroom has 100 year old wainscotting that I stripped and will re-paint it. I also repaired and skim coated the lath and plaster. My question is it it's better for the plumber to do the drain and water supply ( which comes out of the floor) for the claw foot tub before or after cement board and tile is laid. Or should I tile, leaving the openings in the floor and then call the plumber so the tub and sink can be done at the same time.
I'm doing some work on a bathroom and my wife would like me to install small hexagon tiles on the floor. I've never purchased tile before and I'm wondering about the best place to buy it
and the how much the quality varies from tile to tile. Home Depot/Lowes tile vs. Speciality tile store?? Also what's a ballpark estimate for price. I like a good buy but also figure you get what you pay for.
