    Fair enough I will give it a try next job. A contractor I tape houses for also uses this method but I always feel cheated as sometimes the smaller house has more work in it than the larger one but I get less money! Maybe he is just putting in the same rate rather than varying it 10 - 14 as you do.
    Think I'll be havin a word with him.....

    Varies between 3 - 4 a sq.m for ceilings and walls and I usually add 1 a linear metre for beads (plus cost of the beads as BG not very cheap)
