Break it down to what you will do per day. Be realistic. Day one backing plaster. And prep door. Day 2 skim walls and uc door. Day 3 mask up and sand railings. Then at the end you will have the number of days so times your day rate plus materials. Don't adjust day rate and don't underestimate time needed

Oh. It takes time to work out how you need to plan each day. Go walk around job again if needed. Like I said be realistic. Also stick to the plan day to day and try keep ahead of your schedule. I have plans so I look at what I'm doing in each day and have half days to snag up dropped in on jobs over 7 days long as I get behind sometimes
