    Hi guys,

    Just wondering what the goin rate for Belgium Block by the foot was?

    Pricing out 5x5x9's and 4x8x11's for 450 linear ft. So far I figured the 5x5x9's at $18/ft and 4x8x11's at $15/ft. Obviously the smaller blocks require more blocks, time, labor and mortar, so they will cost more. Anyone tell me if im close on these prices?

    I called the customer, to give him my prices and he basically told me im crazy. LOL was only charging him $15/ft to do a 450FT run. I thought my prices were fair. Oh well. BTW I buy stone from Structural Stone(Fairfield), Dan Como and Sons(Towaco), and Argyle Block(Pompton Plains) but they always close to early so I rarely go there.
