Bathroom questions I would LOVE to have answered

Hey guys,

I have some questions that are bothering me and actually make me not sleep well at night. I am tackling a 14' X 10" bathroom right now. Question #

1. I have some areas of cement board with drywall butted up against. Like my shower enclosure is cement board and then I have drywall continuing beside it. Is this going to affect the mudding and painting over, or do I just use some sealers and primers to make it work.

2. Do you paint the bathroom THEN install tile or do you install the tile THEN paint?

3. Should I rip up the vinyl floor before I install tile?

4. Should I install my shower pan and sill etc now when my drywall is done?

5. Do I install my 5 foot double sink vanity before or after my tile is installed??

If you guys could answer some or all of these I would be in great DEBT to you. It is 6:30am right now and I should be sleeping but I cant honestly because I really want this bathroom project done soon but I am worrying about small stuff like this all the time. THANKS GUYS.

1. No it won't affect your taping and mudding, just don't mud and tape the concrete backer underlayment (cbu).
2. Install the tile then prime and paint the walls.
3. You should remove the vinyl, install cbu on the floor on a bed of thinset, then lay your floor tile.
4. Shower pan should go in now.
5. Install all tile, then set in the vanity.

Good night!

You might find it easier to prime the drywall prior to tiling.
