Hi, look in projects under
"PREPARING TO PAINTING NEW PLASTER PROJECT" http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects/pa ... laster.htm
I'd suggest that you didn't PVA walls prior to tiling as it has an effect that sometimes the tile adhesive fails. If your shower screen is where the tiling ends, mark out. tile up until the last column to where screen will be fixed then fix screen and then fix last few tiles.
