    Small job pricing

    All depends on what you do. Fine when theres loads of work about, but when the s**t hits the fan, people will soon deviate from their 'principles'. I agree that you shouldn't be charging peanuts for little jobs, but there are genuine customers who want a few smaller jobs doing and no-one will...

    Small budget, big plans...

    If in doubt, rip it out. Wouldn't want to be living in that though. Once you've done any 'heavy stuff' like knock throughs an all that, and you're 1st fixed, Id concentrate on getting a room done at a time otherwise you'll be in a bare brick hell hole. If not living in it, gut the lot in one...

    Sounds like a bit of a fudge then. I wouldn't want the hassle tbh. Cant you get away with some thin batten? Wont make much difference once its levelled up compared to dab/foam.
