You can get info on typical prices by clicking on the Home > Painting link right under your question, figuring the paint portion itself at maybe $0.20-0.25/SF of the total costs shown in the answers,, so you would deduct that from the estimated costs if you are providing all the paint.

For the ironwork figure I would rough estimate it at about same per SF cost for picket type iron fence or gate or flat lace ironwork (using projected face areas on both sides, not actual metal area), and for metal columns, etc roughly 1-2 SF equivalent cost per LF of column.

Remember that the square footage of the house is figured using the exterior surface area of the house being painted, NOT floorplan area, generally NOT deducting for the glass as the trim paint requirement replaces that area, roughly.
