    I need to plaster the whole house including the ceilings

    All walls are 2.7m high
    downstairs

    Room1: 4.1m x 3.7 = 15.17 m2 / 42.12 walls
    Room2: 4.1 x 4.3 = 17.63 / 45.36
    Hallway: 4.9x 1.1 = 5.39 / 32.4

    Back hallway: 1.4 x 1.6 = 2.24 / 16.2
    Landing: 4 x 1.1 = 4.4 / 28.08
    Bedroom 1 = 3.3x 3 = 9.9 / 34.02
    Bedroom 2 = 3.6 x 3 = 10.8 / 35.64
    Bedroom 3 = 2.6x 2 = 5.2 / 28.08

    70m2 for ceilings plus 261.90 = total 331.9 plus 10% wastage so about 365 m2

    if a sheet is 2.4 x 1.2 = 2.88m2

    I need 126 sheets?

    How many bags of adhesive will I need for the walls? 2 bags per sheet so about 60 bags?

    How much PVA will I need as well?

    Don't your rooms have doors and windows?

    Are all your walls solid or do you have any studs?

    Are you planning to do this work yourself or will you have helpers? The reason I ask is putting up 8 by 4 sheets on a ceiling is a total bitch on your own
