Spraying does take a fair degree of skill and the mistakes with runners due to overspray are almost impossible to eradicate. Also the cleaning of an airless sprayer is a tedious task before you leave it back to the hirer. Don't think of buying a cheap sprayer and taking on a house.

Best to buy the paint and to pay a painter by the day to roller the whole hose white.

Also wait until the skim is well dried out as the undercoat won't take and will be forever flaking on you.

What sort of fee would an architect charge for designing a house? Do they charge per square foot or what way does it work?

My extension fee was 350 and I saved that twice at least when getting a contractor.
