Final Quote

We got the final quote in for the addition: $148,000. Way out of our price range. I tried negotiating with him, but my skills are rusty. So, I ended up pulling things off the project list, leaving him with just the structural work (basically building the shell). I would hire the sub-contrators. He went back to his office and he's reworking the numbers.

I figure with an MBA and previous management experience, I should be able to ride herd on a few subs. He just called me on the phone with a price of $125,000 for most of the job, so maybe I'll be able to afford to put carpet down on the floors after construction is complete.
