To be honest, only you know what your time is worth and what you would be happy working for.

Usually, cost of materials +20%ish on top for profit plus labour.

Maybe allow a weeks labour, get it done sooner then alls good!
 
Think you should charge for your time + 20% + materials, sounds like and half a job, is the house occupied? this would make a difference to your time dont forget.

hello

How you going to get the cables round for spots if no access ?

Are you cutting out holes in the plasterboard to drill joists ?

if the bathroom ceiling has no access how r u going to fit fire hoods?? or are you not fitting them also to my knowledge you can not notch into the underneath of a joist, cutting the plasterboard yes....

ref firehoods use the fittings with integral fire protection, probably cheaper than a fire hood these days and you can notch the underside of a joist but must protect it with a safety plate, 3mm steel, or using a 150mm hole saw cut an access hole in the plasterboard angle drill a hole through the joist, short drill bit required. Don't let the customer see his ceiling before you've replaced the circular cutouts because he'll 5hit himself!!Best of luck!!

What single storey extn? all i've been told is that there is no roof access Could be a boarded loft, a decking project etc. If someone asks for lighting advice and indicates a fire resistance factor then it's not unfair to offer said advice. I've taken a day to consider this and hope you're not trying to "get one over", but also if I'mmissing something please let me know.
