How to paint a whole house very quickly?


Curious what you guys would do to save time. Here's a description of the job:

whole house, new construction
drywall returns for windows/doors
100% cathedral ceilings upstairs
no cathedral lighting fixtures
3400 SF home

Here's my plan, before flooring is installed, cover the window openings with plastic by taping to the outside of the drywall return. Spray the whole house white primer. Spray all ceilings and walls with white finish. Remove window/door coverings and brush/roll these areas to finish after move-in...

All one color, is this the fastest approach?

I have a 26 gal 5.6CFM compressor with another 26 gal spare tank for a total of 52 gal of compressed air if I wanted to use both tanks. What airgun would work best for latex with this setup?

No air gun is going to work well with latex paint. Some modern HVLP set ups can spray un thinned latex, but even the best, most expensive units are only used for small scale jobs like trim and cabinets. For a whole house full of drywall, airless is the only way to go.

Your plan sounds good. Might want to consider back rolling the final coat on the walls at least if not the ceilings too.

If you wanted to take the time to mask the drywall returns tight to the windows, you wouldn't have to come back and hand paint around them.

the main thing is I want to get the majority done to get occupancy, then do the little stuff. Maybe the wife, mom, brother, etc can do the masking to the windowframe while I do other stuff. Then I shoot it. Ok airless. I'll rent one then. Wish I could use my compressor!

A roller and brush is more helpful for you in this regard. Go for it to get the things done in quick session.

If you haven't used an airless before it would help to do some research. There are some pretty good instructional vids on YouTube. Look for ones sponsored or made by Graco. Also B&K painting has a few that could help get you started.

The general operation of airless sprayers is the same across different brands.

Good luck!

I figured, but after researching, guys have said some primers are heavier and require a heavier duty pump/machine or will burn out after 10-15 gallons...so my paint choice might be limited once I check out what machines are available.

I believe the airless sprayers that home depot rents are commercial grade sprayers and will spray the primer that you will need with no problem. Our painting company has been approached by our local home depot before about buying some rentals from them and the airless sprayers that I looked at that they rented where commercial grade Graco units.

Unless your shooting block filler the airless you rent will be fine. Study tip sizes and don't worry about the primer. And as JMay gave you some good videos don't just watch them study them B&K has several watch them all. Will help you mask too.
