Painting Strategy

OK, I run a handyman business. I do a fair amount of painting, and some of it I would even consider med/high end.

The bulk of my painting however, is low end stuff for a property management firm.

1600 sf home. 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1 single hung vinyl window per room.
All of the flooring is being replaced.

The house is vacant. Everything is getting painted (except cabinets and other obvious things).

Ceiling: Flat White
Walls: Flat Antique White
Trim: Satin/Semi White

Layout your strategy for me.

On ceilings how do you tell if it is rollable. Most of the places around here have popcorn texture on them. The last time I tried to roll one, it came down on my head.

I loaded up the roller, and with the first swipe it came down. I lost my butt on that job. Had to scrape the whole ceiling and re-texture. I'm terrified to roll one now, and haven't since.

Spray is best if at all possible on popcorn.
