when installing tile floors do you have to install them all within one period of time or is it ok to do say half then the the other half the next day. I am worried about the mortar or thinset shrinking as it dries

and getting an uneven floor after the second half dries. i have never tiled anything before but would definitly like to try.

any help is much appreciated.

Thank-you in advance.

Just mix fresh thinset for the second day. your notches on your trowel will control the thickness of the adhesive.
