I have an unfinished attic (17x22 with sloped walls, 8 ft ceiling height) and would like to get an idea of what I should expect to pay for having it drywalled. Anybody ever have this done?

Greetings ncprguy,

A couple of previous posts you might find interesting. If you're talking about converting the attic to living space, there's more to it than drywall:

There are some other posts out there as well on this topic; try "Advanced Search." Good luck.

Thank you for the response. Actually this is an unfinished bonus room, new construction, so it is designed to be finished. It has electical and HVAC roughed in. I was hoping to get an idea of a sq. ft. cost I might expect for something like this. Thanks!
