Got no idea what the going rate per square foot is today but I would pay them the by the hour with a bonus if they get it done under a certain number of hours.
I helped a buddy do the ceiling and walls of his wood shop portion of his shop, it took us eight hours to hang the drywall on a Saturday, then the mudding crew came in on Monday and was done on Tuesday. He painted on Thursday then we hung the conduit on Saturday.
Then Sunday we were pulling circuits, it took three days to pull all the new circuits and wire them into the breaker panel.
The wood shop was under loft in the shop. It had a 9' ceiling so it was pretty easy to hang the sheets, the previous wall sheeting were pieces of plywood he had scrounged from shipping crates. He wanted to cover the plywood with something to spruce the shop up some.
He had all the woodworking equipment moved out into the shop before we started hanging the drywall. Made it easier and faster to hang it. He had spent two weeks to get the shop cleaned out, the wiring pulled out and the conduit down off the walls and ceiling. He tagged all the wiring bundles so we could pull them back into the correct run of conduit. He had 3phase and single phase circuits in the shop. He painted the conduit different colors to signify what phase ran in it, it looked good after we were finished with it,
He has a nice shop now.
I do all his metal work now, he sold off his welders and his small stock of metal working equipment. He likes woodworking better than metalworking.

Probably 7 sheets left to do on the ceiling, 8' ceiling. I did about 1/3 of it myself when i installed the stoker and yes, 5/8 is heavy - i was very thankful for the lift then!! There are three ceiling lights to work around they are 4 bulb 4' flourescents and not too bad, I just took them out, hung the drywall then put them right back up.

The walls will take about 15 sheets, there are three windows, about 12 outlets and switch boxes to cut in.

Kevin.... I'm liking your price of a few beers and Lu47 i like your speed.....you guys up for a road trip!!?? :lol:

Hey Fred, Capt Obvious says that's one less than a level 5!! :)

I was thinking about it from a different angle this morning. I think it would be worth about $250 to me for them to hang it which comes out to about $10 / sheet. I'll clear out the one garage bay and they can move some equip there and make it easier to maneuver so they could get done faster.

If they want the job it'll keep me from aggravating my back spasms and a week or so recovery time, gets something done i've been procrastinating on and gets them some gas money and some work experience.

As little as I am working right now, I could use a long road trip. :( Come on Freetown, scrape the old mud off the trowel and sand up the hod. :P

I once gave a new guy to my area a chance to show his stuff on a house I was building. He came in with a friend from S. Maine, strictly a hanger, and he was a finisher. Came from OOB, Canadian French decent. Said he was moving to get away from abusive, work until you drop father. His dad was a drywall contractor and this guy didn't finish high school, just went to work.
Anyhoo, they hung every sheet in a 52x26 ranch style house and the walk out basement wall in just 5 hours! :shock: Then he turned around and taped and finished better then I had ever seen in a few days. He was a wizard with a drywall tool of any sort. The most amazing thing was there was none on the floor to clean up and very little sanding.
He was not a self starter however and soon stopped showing up on jobs and would not take care of business. I blamed that on his abusive father, but he sure taught him to tape and mud drywall!

If they can't make money, they won't do it. And I have learned that I don't want to tape and mud behind someone that has no clue about hanging. I saw some guys using skilsaws to cut the drywall once. All the paper on the cut edges were ragged and had to be cut back with a knife. IT was a huge house on the water and I spent the entire first week just going around and prepping the bad spots for the guys taping. Luckily, we were being paid by the hour! 8-)

I'd rather be shot in the knee than do dry wall and I've done a lot.
I don't paint anymore either.

I don't mind hanging and mudding it. I did most of a 200-year-old house once, and not one surface was anywhere near square. So whack your workshop with a bulldozer and make everything crooked, and I'll come help. But painting above my head is a no-no.

Interesting, it seems to be the French Canadians in this area who specialize in it, too. There’s a carpenter who has done some jobs for me. I told him I needed some drywall hung, and he refused, told me he is not French enough to do a good job. :P
