    Well maybe scared was the wrong word. It can't be any harder then a large irritation job.

    did you get your license taken care of? talk about a $ grab. no sooner do you pay all the fees for the paperwork and then the bond THEN with your acceptance letter they hit you up for the seal(s) that must be ordered through them. ALL this and not an irrigation job in site... oh well

    i have a question. How does the sleeving or pricing differ when on a large job vs a small. Sure you may need bigger or more conduits in certain areas so you can pull enough wire but the same principals apply. There may be special considerations like storage fees or travel fees (like the 200 lights job I did with burt 2 years ago we had hotels etc)

    You should be more scared of a single fixture that needs a crazy customized install than 500 fixtures all ground and tree mounted. I will do system drawings for the whole project but have individual drawings for each transformer. Keeping things organized and staging materials (keeping them secure on site) will be the biggest challenge. One I will no doubt as Mr Cajun to help with.
