How do I quote a drywall job from hanging taping and mudding? Is it by sqft of house or sqft of drywall sheets?

Good morning,

Once you figure out your total sf of board to do the house including 10% waste, then you price it accordingly to the final sf. Not as per the house. Always as per the total of materials.

You quote it on the square footage you are actually going to install.

It's usually priced per sf [board square],labour to hang board is around 35-50cents and to mud and tap its around 1.50$ per board sf. Thats prices for just labour.

You charge by the sf of the area being done. Not the sq of the house. Also if theres bulk heads you charge for that as well.
