we plan to tile the bathrooms DIY.And then get a handyman to install bath,Vanity suite with WC&Basin at a DIFFERENT location in same bathroom.
Kindly tell me the sequence in which work is done to achieve this-should i get a plumber to do the pipe work and let them project out of wall-and then carry out my tiling work-he can then complete the installation when I am done.
Any suggestions/tips??

get the plumber first, tiling i would leave to a professional unless you are confident enough otherwise someone might not be very happy fitting your new bath (unless its free standing),

DIY and handyman installation, in my opinion just asking for trouble.

Hello, this is Altrades on my builder, i would recommend getting the plumbing done first then tiling then installation. You need the pipe work done first!.
