Tiling a shower - Uncertain on enclosure fitting

    Hello everyone,

    I'd really appreciate some advice. I did some tiling in our bathroom just under a year ago but left it half-completed. We don't use that bathroom and life got in the way. I'm now coming back to it and am starting to doubt myself!!

    The problem is about the shower area. I had the tray fitted before tiling which I think is correct. I then tiled around it, cutting the tiles to make a nice fit and leaving a 1mm gap between the tray and the tiles for silicon. The walls aren't plumb though, so I used a fair amount of adhesive on one wall to level everything out. This might be where I went wrong?

    The edge of the tiles come down over the top of the tray about half a centimetre on the one side and about two centimetres on the other side. Is this too much to still fit the enclosure? I've never fitted an enclosure before so am not sure how they work, e.g. if they're adjustable.

    I stopped tiling just after the shower, so if anything has to change then it won't ruin too much. But obviously this isn't ideal!! It'd be great if someone could put my mind at rest...... :oops:
