I have got to tile a new bathroom which we have built as part of an extension. The walls are 12.5mm plasterboard and 12mm ply where the shower is going, this bit I intend to tank as well. The tiles we have are polished porcelain 600x300 by 9mm thick. I know I have to use special adhesive but which is the the one you would recommend?

I intend to have 2mm spaces between the tiles. What grout would be the best to use? I have seen some mention of anti mould grout and would prefer to use this if possible.

I'm going to have to drill some holes some about 20mm, what bits would be suitable?

Thanks in advance for any help.
