    I'm sure some people will say about 3 days, but i would allow 5 days for an average 4 bed, ( approx 150m/2 floor space as a comparison)

    It really depends on a lot of things,
    Fiba tape/Paper tape r u working urself?
    Machine taper or hand taper?
    Drying time I would give it 2 weeks with paper tape! (Unless that thing called the sun is actually shining bright)

    If the other tapers are doing them in 2 days, the site agent will expect you to do the same. Good luck.
