I have a large landscape construction project coming up in mid spring 08. Today I was negotiating the lighting end of it with the GC (Who I am working as a sub for) and the owner. The initial proposal was for 80K for the lighting. The owner only wants to spend 40K but wants the option to go to the 80K job once they see the lighting and know what will be left of their budget when the house is done (it's a new custom). Fine, I recommended pre-wiring for the approximately additional 150 fixtures and charging 10 large for it. The owner wants me to "throw it in" and the builder is insinuating that I should as it's a large contract. I'm not into working on speculation and don't appreciate carrot dangling. In the old days when cable was cheap maybe. But now with cable what it is? Am I being a cheap greedy ***** ? Thank you.
