cost of finishing garage?

terpomJune 5, 2007

We are considering purchasing a home with an attached garage which is unfinished (basically meaning no plasterboard, open rafters on top). The garage is unfinished,dirty, with lots of spiders. Does anybody know approximately how much the cost of plasterboarding the garage would be. Even a ballpark figure? We have no idea, and it could be a dealbreaker for us.

You might want to include the size of the garage and details (all the details)of what you want done and what is needed.
Such as:
Flooring for storage above

Might also want to include the area you're talking about. Cost will be locale driven.
As a guess, figure about $35-40 a sheet(5/8") installed, taped and compounded.
