Straight pricing questions are frowned upon here but I will leave this open (for now) with the hope that some members will be able to give you some suggestions about how to go about pricing it and what pitfalls are specific to bidding new construction.

You're probably in the neighborhood of 45 gallons per coat. If the walls and ceilings are all the same color I'd give myself one day for the primer and one day for each top coat, with a helper for back rolling.

Straight pricing questions are frowned upon here, as are 'Going Rate' questions. If you are a contractor seeking advice regarding your pricing structure, the Moderators of this forum would like to direct you to this pricing thread - Pricing, Estimating and Success.
