    hi wozzza i reckon you would be looking at around 4-5k for 1 coat on walls ceilings and woodwork. But bare in mind if your woodwork is currently oil based (satin/gloss enamel) an undercoat is highly recommended. There are alot of factors that can affect price i.e is it 2 storey, is there a staircase, how intricate is the woodwork etc.

    cheers

    I just received a quote (last week) for 5 bedroom house, most reputable painters will not have anything to do with "one coat" jobs and those that do will not warrente the job, my quote was $6,420

    Our 5 bedroom home cost $5k to paint - 2 coats all round. This didn't include kitchen, laundry, bathroom and ensuite. It did include some outside work and internal stairs, hallway, rumpus room, etc plus stripping some god awful wallpaper and sanding of walls where required. Paid cash and happy with the result. Couldn't recommend the painter as I had to finish off some small bits myself after 3 months of phoning to come back and finally gave up. Not a bad price for Sydney I thought.

    If you have 8 to 9 foot ceilings then $5000 is around the ball park figure.

    $5000? I just quoted 8k as a bare shell with new plaster sanded ready for painting. I'll pay the airfares and hotel to get em here. Sounds like a ripper deal
