Drywall already on sight labour and I will supply the mud and priming $2800.00 (ballpark figure)

To install 65 sheets of drywall taped sanded primed one coat you're looking at a rough estimate $3,000 to $4,000

One coat of primer is more than sufficient 2 is just unnecessary. Most painters today don't even use primer but I'm a big believer of priming all drywall one code only though.

Hello. assuming they are all 8 foot, 1/2 inch drywall:

Drywalling $1500.00 to $2000.00

mudded and sanded $1500.00 to $2000.00

Don't forget at add other costs like: joint compound, durabond or sheetrock 90 paper tape, cornerbeads and etc. $300.00

also add the disposing of material waste. $300.00

I dont prime so i dont know how much that would cost.
