I think that would be very hard for anyone on here to price that out without seeing the job.

Is there drywall up? Is there a basement, attic access? How dirty and how much crap is in the way?

If there is no drywall in the way I would say atleast around $1800+ material. Or whatever you charge for 3 full days.
