    Portland cement fills up the spaces between the particles of sand when you mix it like water soaks into a sponge, so mixing one part cement and 3 parts sand will not give you 4 parts mix, more like 3 parts. I get you will need 17 bags of cement and 2 1/2 tons of sand.

THAT IS IF THE TOTAL SG.FT IS 1700 WALLS AND FLOOR
