Pricing/Estimating Time to Build

So I have my first bid on a resting wall coming up I have built three with my dad so I understand all the fundamentals behind them.mmy only problem is I have no idea how to price. Now I know all of you will be saying it all depends and I realize that I know the amount I want /hour and wcan figure out what my materials and rentals will cost. Anyways my problem is I have no idea how to estimate time. Also how can I figure out what people are charging in my area? Any advice is appreciated. I am building this one for one of my current high school teachers and will definitely get the job as long as my price is not ludicrous.
