8,000 sq ft Ranch... How many days?
 
Hey guys, I'm doing general construction now and I'm looking into specializing in drywall and working for some other contractors. I am trying to figure out if I can be profitable doing this and how long I could expect jobs to take if I get more efficient boarding and finishing like many of you.

Let me know what this would take...


Here's the job - 8,000 sq ft of board, a "TYPICAL" ranch home, 8' ceilings


How many guys and how many days?

Hanging 32 hours
Taping 32 hours
Texture 8 hours
Sand/cleanup 8 hours
Could be done in 7 days with a professional 2 person crew if the conditions are right. Assuming this is around 170 sheets of gravy.

Thanks for the info. Does anyone else have any estimates of how many days?

8 hours texture? What kind of texture is he calling for? I don't see it anywhere on the post. No way you do a light skip trowel in 8 hours over 170 sheets. You have to return to lightly sand after the texture dries any how. Or is it smooth finish? How about installing corner bead? And window wraps? I think you are very light on the hours.
