If it's very short and has no rooms inside...... not a whole lot.

That depends on the number of rooms---height of the walls and the size of the sheets of drywall.

We need more info---post a set of prints---I'll do a take off for you.---Mike---

You're kidding aren't you?
Do you think that the houses design might be a factor.
Look at the plans and figure it out if the architect didn't do a material list.
Or contact him and have him generate one.

Sorry guys----I moved a post from 'Automotive" and answered it----another MOD must have merged the two or three posts---

Obviously the fellow needs an answer--RIGHT NOW---

So I say ,' Get one really big sheet of drywall,say 35 feet wide by 60 feet long and cut to size.

Something is amiss with the board.
My above comment (Post # 7) was meant to give oh-mike some crap when his post (answer) was all that appeared in the thread.

I just tried to go back to my Post #7 and edit it a little and I can't get in.


Jheeeeezh! Now, what was my Post # 7 has been removed and #7 now belongs to another comment. I give up.

you should be fine with 3 sheets, possibly 4 if you have high ceilings

You most likely need about 10,000 square feet of drywall. You don't calculate drywall by the sheet, you calculate it by the square foot.
