Drywall drop ceiling

I'm trying to decide between using a contractor to install a drywall drop ceiling or trying to do it myself. A contractor quoted me a price of $3300 to frame, drywall, primer paint, etc. for just about at 6' x 6' x 6" area. That seems extreme, but I'm not sure. Does this estimate sound right?

Verify your measurements. So far, you have 2 sheets of drywall, about a short roll of tape, 1 lb of dry mix, for a materials cost of less than $25. With that labor quote, I don't care where you live, I'll move there tomorrow. Something is wrong.

yea it sounds high to me too but there is framing and paint involved as well. If this is new york city he is getting it for a bargin. If its kansas city (were im from) then call me up and Ill do it for half.
