Thanks guys. Most of these jobs are pre-schools. I have several more to do this year which is good as it's nice work. I allow for the beads when pricing. Used a lot of No-Coat L-trim on this one on the top of the low walls and up against the beams. Finishes it off really nicely. The ceiling tiles are acoustic to absorb the screams of the children that are going to be playing below.

Tell me about it! Did one last year with 10 Velux windows in, all at height. Worst ones are when you get a wasp for company.

this looks like a cool job :D ive just done a house simmilar shaped to this but bigger only pain was scaffoldings far better than normal houses :) people have too much money but aslong as they build silly shaped houses that need loads of taping were laughing :D

what sort of price do you guys charge per area? just priced a 4.5mtr (L) x 5mtr (w) x 2mtr (h) room at 140 and the guy was shocked he thought the labour would cost alot more??? i thought 140 was about right?

I'm presuming the 2m ceiling height is a typo error. If the ceilings are the standard 2.35 to 2.40 metres high, a ballpark price would be 200 - 230 plus any corner beads you never mentioned.

Annoyed at yourself for having a low bid accepted when you knew you should have asked for more? We've all done it mate, I wouldnt worry.

It might only be a days work, but it's 2 trips if you have to sand it, and then, 3 coats in a day is something i'd rather not do.

its only a days work but you have to consider what you want for that day, take out materials petrol tax and going back to sand does not leave you with much.

nice job tony by the way

well at a time like this in life where things are tough and the irish are moving in taking all the work cause there on dirt cheap rates........... theres not much work and a recession its not verry easy so i just price reasonably so i get the work just to keep me going and as theres no steel tapes and a days work plus its an old woman on a pension so got to try help a little bit :) i just thought it was a reasonable price for a wee room that can be done in the a day not to worry about having to go back a 2nd day anyway as id have to to paint the place :) painting price is more :D

fair comments I think people were afraid you were selling yourself short, we all can't make a fortune every day.
