How many labor hours to demo and install new tile shower to include new tile floor

Tile walls-120 sq ft, floor, 20 sq ft tile floor, and bull nose 24 sq ft. Demo and remove all existing wall tile and plastic pad floor and install tiles and install new mud floor with tile. Labor hours only. I am planning to provide all tiles and fixtures

Depends of course on your specific configuration, type of tile, condition of subfloor (i.e. can it support the weight of a mudded installation, and does the sheathing need replacement ?) - but commonly in the ballpark of about 30-40 manhours for a complete shower replacement - another 5-10 or so for the floor, totalling about 40-50 manhours ROUGH ballpark. Real simple job might go for 30 hours with prefab pan, if you believe in them, though undersupport to prevent cracking of the tile lying in it is very important.

My recommendation also - why plastic pad floor - if willing to do mud base in the shower, why not do the bathroom floor right too - because the plastic pad "floating" tile floors have a far greater incidence of cracking up.
