Help appreciated.

I need to find out how much does it cost to build bulkhead under the existing ceiling. 8 feet wide, 32 feet long, about 8-9 inches thick, just enough to install pot-lights.

What would be the average pricing for the following?

1. Metal framing

2. Drywalling

3. Taping/Sanding

4. Painting

Thanks in advance.

$3000 - $4000, depends on ceiling height.

Also we do install a lot of utraslim potlights from lite line. Those are about 0.5 inch thick so there's no need to drop ceiling with those.

Price of pot with installation is higher then regular retrofit cans but you save a lot on ceiling and will not loose height.

Potlight on image below is $130 + hst installed.
