I am doing a loft conversion and have created a new roof space that is 11m x 6.5m. This I am dividing up into 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms using stud walls. Can anyone give me a idea how to estimate the work to board, tape and fill joints. The wall space is approximately 181 square meters - 5 doors. Not forgetting 80m^2 of ceiling to board as well.
I have been using a carpenter for the main work but his plastering quote seems a little expensive. I don't want to waste plasterers time by getting quotes when I intend use the same carpenter. I just want to get the feeling that I am paying a fair price.
Its simple dude . £4 per sqm walls and board. £.80 per metre for beading . No charge for the tape (feeling generous) and as its a loft I would add £50 for the curved ceiling (which by the way looks better)
These rates should get you top quality pink. These are labour rate only and I think its a fair price. 1 bag of pink will do 10 ish sqm. .
When mesuring don't cut the windows out and door linings treat it as if there is no window there , this is how it should be done . Gives the plasterer a few more ££££ for the reveals. If some one added the windows in I wouldn't do it.
