Drywall install manhours/time

I'm looking for an estimate for the time needed for 2 men to drywall (hang, tape, mud and sand) in 8 rooms. The house is approximately 2200 s/f. They are using 5/8" drywall in 12' and 14' sheets.

Just a guess but I think about 40-50 sheets. Most 12's with some 14'.

Figure out the sq ft of drywall (not floor) and multiply by 1.5. (Roughly).

It really depends on the skill of the people you get and the price could double depending on whether you contract directly with the workers or with their GC.

and of course whatever we say here doesn't amount to a hill of beans since your prices locally are unknown to us.

I'm not concerned with the cost. That's built into my contract. Right now I'm concerned about time.

Kind of hard for us to say how fast someone else can work. . We don't even know the size of the crew?!? You sure its 2 men?

Best guess, 4-5 days. Assuming nothing fancy and they are real professionals and show up on consecutive days in a row.

Guess I forgot to mention that its weather dependent if there is little to no heat in the house. Cold temps always slow things down. Propane costs $$$ and puts moisture into the air, so that's a wildcard.

1-2 days to hang and 3 days to finish. Small or odd shaped rooms can add to the time needed. As noted above the skill and work ethic of your drywall guys can alter the time period.
