    you need to figure out your costs and know what you want to profit. then you have what to charge.

    I hope I didn't get your meaning wrong. You are planning on doing all of this work with an 8 man crew, right?

    If so..................

    64hrs. X 8 man crew = 512MH/cut X 32Cuts = 16,384MH's.

    I DID transpose two numbers, but the result is similar.....

    $325,000.00 / 16,384MH's = $19.84/MH.

    Also...I'm just interested in how you'd schedule this to have it completed in a timely fashion. Admittedly, this is beyond anything I do or am interested in. But, that's a lot of MH's to fit in. I've dealt with (another profession) many times these numbers. I'm just interested in how you're thinking this through (scheduling).

    Like I said, I hope it works out for you (if it's profitable).

    2,048 is HOURS....not MH's.

    Multiply the above by 8, now....and see where you stand.
