Advice on pricing a Victorian path (to tile)?

Just under 6m and new screed gone down.
Just wondering how I should price this. The client will supply the tiles 100x100 diamond fashion with border. I will supply the other materials. I’ve done some before but was working for a friends firm so I was on a day rate. I’m thinking 3x a normal m2 rate??
Thanks in advance

I personally never price per m2. Just work out how many days you think it will take and multiply that figure by your day rate.

It is not easy when you first start !it goes against most tiling methods and practices !! All I can say is make everything as central and straight as possible

I have enough experience mate I’m just seeing what’s happening out there. Hearing so many different things lately, I’m testing the water. Goes against methods 🤣 to be fair you are right there, I’ve seen it. But don’t try and belittle me. I bet you are very good at what you do, but you ain’t untouchable son

Lol you got fair way to catch up !! And you laughed at what I can do !! I just pulled you up on it !! You obviously don't have enough experience as you asked what you are worth ?? Really though this tiling is not what most tilers can do easily or well !don't sell yourself short !!

Listen mate. If I could offer you one piece of advice it would be to never ever take lessons from other tilers who take any opportunity to belittle other tilers. As far as ,"I could tile that in one day", malarkey. Ignore. We've all come across someone who can tile a complete project in one day and inevitably the finished job looks gash. It was a fair question you asked. Billy Big Balls Kevbos would have been better trying to help you out instead of making a complete fool of himself. You charge what your happy with. We all charge differently anyway.

Very funny !! Billy Big balls !! Thing is what he said he was doing I can do in a day !! But just to stop any further arguments ! Tomorrow I start a lot more complex victorian path ! So watch here and see how it progresses!! And from first thread that I responded too ! I didn't think I was being rude ! What one tiler can do in a day is alot of the time very different to another !! As I done victorian tiling every day for over 10 years and been tiling 20 years !why would it surprise anyone I could do the path he mentioned with such large tiles ??

Well I will have to be honest I could not complete this job today as after laying the main body on porch area first thing today !! I then finished outer cuts to main path area !! But was unable to get onto the porch area as the tiles too wet !lovely British weather made it too cold for the adhesive to set in normal times !! So I left it !! I did not want to cause problems !! So will go back tomorrow and finish !! So I have to hold hands up I did not finish it in the 2 days !!
