I have just purchased a small 50 m² office in the Melbourne CBD located at 343 Little Collins Street. I have engaged professional tradesmen to construct partitions to segment the office into three separate small offices. That has been completed.

What remains to be done is as follows:

1) patch and paint the brand-new erected plaster walls (approximately 45 m² of walls);
2) paint 3 doors;
3) Rip out carpet covering about 30 m², and laying down tongue in groove floorboards from Bunnings (these simply clip into place, no nailing or adhesive or polishing required); and
4) Put together 2 or 3 separate shelving pieces from IKEA.

I will supply all input materials, but would prefer you have tools such as an electric saw (which may be needed to trim some of the floorboards to fit them in place) although I can supply if strictly needed.

Please quote on your supply of labour to complete… I understand proper patching of newly erected plaster walls requires three applications to smoothly cover screws and joins etc and a brief sanding prior to painting. On top of that, two coats of paint may be required. Accordingly the job is is likely to span over a couple of days…

My guess would be 25 hours work… at $35 per hour = $875. Feel free to visit the site to provide the most accurate quote you can.

I'm looking to start as soon as possible and will make a quick decision…weekends are okay also…

thanks Gregory…based on reliable measurements there is approximately 30 m² of floating floor space, and 47 m² of patching/painting of plaster. That would come to approximately $920 plus the 15% payable to Airtasker, does that sound about right? I am after a high-quality finish, and would place value on experience…
Hi Sam, I am a Qualified Carpenter with 20 years experience in Commercial Office Interiors and all necessary tools to complete your task, could you please tell me how many LM of stoping up of plaster works please, so I can work out a Quoted price,
